Anja + Matthews Tallabana Springbrook Elopement


You are my inspiration, my strength, my everything. My siel en my gees.
I promise to respect you as a person, a partner, and an equal. Not just out of support as I am your best friend; but as on this day, today, we cease to be individuals.

I promise stand by your side, lead you bravely and follow you courageously.
I promise to sleep in your arms, and to hold you when your soul cries out. To be the keeper of your heart and the food for your soul. To learn with you and grow with you, even as time and life change us both.

En as ek die dag my hand in houne sit, sal ek my padkaarte bere met die wete: my reise op soek na jou is nou verby.
My vrou, ek lief jou baie.

- Matthew Warsnop



Anja first contacted Wildhearted, discouraged by traditional Wedding Planning - she was finding the whole process of trying to organise both of their families to be in the same location, at the same time, most difficult. Anja and Matthew decided the best plan was to have an Elopement in Australia, and follow this with a family celebration in South Africa after they had tied the knot!

So the seed had been planted and the ideas for their elopement grew, and their Ceremony location was selected at the Tallabana Springbrook National Forest, where they chose to exchange their magical vows with only their two best friends as their witnesses. We then continued their afternoon at the Goomoolahra Falls for addional portrait photos. It was a stunning heartfelt elopement, with tears by all, and the promise of true love to keep them safe in their future travels. <3


Congratulations Anja + Matthew x
