We're your photographer, pack mule and adventure buddies

reclaim your freedom and plan an epic adventure

who are the wild pair?

We are a husband and wife team committed creating your wild and untamed wedding adventure.

The Wild Pair was born from a love of intimate moments and big adventures. We believe your wedding shouldn’t be bound by tradition or expectation; we believe you should have the freedom to do anything, and go anywhere, on your wedding day.  Whether that’s hiking to the top of a mountain at sunrise to elope or saying “I Do” on a secluded beach, we are here to help and guide you every step of the way.

Why? Because we’ve been there and done that. We know how challenging planning your dream wedding can be and we know how easy it can be to lose sight of what’s really important. We’re here to make sure your elopement – your wedding day – is better than you ever imagined.

Hi, I'm Lauren!

aka photographer & principal planner

Hi there! I’m Lauren – the brains and the creative behind The Wild Pair. Here’s what you need to know about me:

  • I am super organised and love a good list
  • I love pineapple, especially on pizza and in red curry
  • I’m currently hiking in a sick pair of red Oboz
  • My favourite place on earth is either Yosemite National Park, The Grand Canyon, or the Thai island Koh Andang (okay, so I’m not very good at picking favourites…)
  • I fricken love my husband and love doing life with him!
Why do I believe in elopements? Because they give you freedom! You don’t have to worry about other people’s opinions or expectations which means you can plan a day that is truly ‘you’.

Hey, james here!

aka adventure guide & pack mule

Hey, James here! I’m The Wild Pair’s chief navigator and outdoors extordinnaire. Here’s me summed up to a tee:

  • I’m an engineer by day, but adventurist at heart
  • I love a physical challenge; the harder, the better!
  • I’m currently breaking in a new pair of Salomon hiking boots, and trying some trail running in them too
  • My favourite place on this planet is Seefled in Austria because of its epic mountains
  • I love my wife to bits and am stoked that we can adventure together!
Why do I believe in elopements? Because you can be 100% yourself, and embrace the moment you marry your other half, without having to worry about being surrounded a crowd of people!

Because we believe the day you get married matters. Choosing to elope shouldn’t mean having a 5 minute legals only ceremony followed by a few quick portraits. The day you get married means more than that. When you hire us, we help you create an epic adventure that celebrates your marriage in a way that is truly meaningful to you.

Our Ethos

Have you ever heard the saying, “there’s no such thing as bad weather, just different types of good weather?” It’s another way of saying, life’s too short, or seize the day! And quite frankly, we agree. We believe that outdoors is better than indoors and there’s no point living just to exist. We love the mountains as much as the ocean and can’t decide whether we prefer hiking, trail running or skiing. We think there’s no better play ground than planet earth and there’s not enough years to explore. We value experiences over things and think time is too precious. Ultimately, we live to experience everything this world has to offer and would be so stoked to help you have an adventure elopement or wedding like no other!
