Whether you’re recently engaged or have been dreaming about your wedding day for ages, eloping surrounded by the natural beauty of Banff National Park is the perfect way to celebrate your love story. 

At Elope in Banff, there’s nothing we love more than helping couples from all walks of life cherish the magic of their love story and celebrate a new beginning together! Our team removes the stress of planning your “big” day and puts our award-winning experience to work to create a day you’ll remember forever, with your venue, photography, on-site wedding coordination and more included in each of our packages

We believe tying the knot should be a fun, magical, and, most importantly, intimate experience that lets true love shine through! We’re proud to welcome couples to this breathtaking slice of the Canadian Rockies and to help you create an elopement that captures the beauty of your love as you both embark on a new chapter in your journey together, all while surrounded by the rugged majesty of Banff National Park. 

If you’ve been contemplating a Rocky Mountain wedding for your nuptials, here are just a few of the many reasons you should elope in Banff! 

Picture Perfect Backdrop

Your wedding location sets the stage for your special day, and one of the best parts of getting married in Banff is that the Rockies offer a romantic, magical background all year round. No matter what season you choose, you’ll be greeted by soaring regal peaks that become snowcapped and twinkling during the winter, framed with vibrant golds, reds and yellows during fall, and contrasted by a lush valley full of greens, blues and an explosion of colours during the spring and summer. 

 From the majestic peaks of Mount Rundle and the Three Sisters in Canmore to the turquoise waters of Lake Louise and Moraine Lake*, Banff National Park offers a myriad of stunning backdrops for your elopement, with the ever-changing landscape promises to make your special day truly magical.

*Moraine Lake ceremonies require couples to use the private transportation arranged by Elope in Banff (note: transportation costs are only for the eloping couple) to access the location in accordance with new government regulations regarding public access. 

Intimate Ceremonies, Big Moments

While the Rockies are perfect for weddings of all sizes, there’s something truly special about choosing to elope and embrace the natural stillness and tranquillity of the area with a much smaller affair. From clandestine ceremonies featuring just the couple themselves to smaller gatherings of 10-20 of your nearest and dearest, an elopement focuses solely on the beauty of your connection, your commitment to one another, and the joy of creating something new to cherish together forever!

Say goodbye to the stress and pressure of a traditional wedding and hello to a celebration that is uniquely yours – filled with love, laughter, and heartfelt promises.

Memories to Last a Lifetime

Eloping in Banff isn’t just about having your ceremony in the perfect spot; it’s about creating memories that you’ll revisit countless times over the many years to come. At Elope in Banff, we know how much couples cherish each moment of their wedding day. That’s why we include photography in each of our packages and ensure that the intimate nature of your elopement allows for stunning photos that capture each living memory and give you a picture-perfect story to look back on each anniversary and share with those in your life!
