Acoustic folk mountain elopement: Amie + Nick
Wedding boots, country folk music and boozing from the bottle. Nick & Amie are totally our kinda lovebirds!
We first met them for wedding chats at their home in Carlton, Melbourne and they seemed like cool dudes. And when Amie said she was gonna rock her trusty Doc Martens under her wedding dress, we fell head over heels.
Picture this: a frosty winter's day in country Victoria, trekking up a mountain, arms full of instruments. Crisp air and snowflakes, and a slippery slope of adventure all the way to the top. Nobody fell. 'Cept a certain banjo player. Totes rock'n'roll.
Tiny weddings are ace. And an elopement is as tiny as you can get. Nick & Amie opted for a mountain top, a live music serenade, and no guest witnesses - who needs 'em, when your folkin' acoustic duo can autograph your marriage certificate?
See, that's the thing about eloping - you get to do whatever the hell you please. Wanna hike a steep mountain in the snow? Done. Wanna be present enough to enjoy every single moment together? Sure. Wanna party all night under the stars or go to bed early? It's all up to you.
We asked Amie & Nick if they'd share their elopement ideas, memories and wisdom. And because they're delightful human beings, they did.
We're Fidel & Sarah
A Melbourne folk band with wedding sensibilities and punk rock spirit. Most days you'll find us off-grid in the country playing banjo tunes to the kangaroos, or travelling around Australia in our vintage caravan Myrtle. We love 99% dark chocolate, living every day like a holiday, and brides & grooms who aren't afraid to do whatever the hell they want for their special day.
Massive thanks to Amie & Nick for sharing their elopement story with us.
