Your Croatia Elopement in Omiš - Itinerary
Example Timeline for a Croatia elopement adventure in Omiš during mid-May:
15:00 – Meet up at the old town or your accommodation to start your Croatia Elopement, with an optional first look. Stroll the streets Omiš to enjoy the view and take couple photos.
*If you have guests, you can opt for group formals. This will add up to 30 mins to your timeline.
**Optional beach photoshoot. This will add 30-60 mins to your timeline.
17:30 – Make our way out of the old town and towards the hiking path.
17:45 – Hiking up the mountain to your Croatia elopement ceremony location. The hike is about 1h long, but is not easy, and requires proper hiking shoes.
*Your guests can choose to meet us at the ceremony location. They can go to a shorter and easier path by car, and then take a 10-20 min hike to the fortress.
**If you have already done a ferrata, you can also opt to ferrata your way to the fortress, instead of hiking.
19:00 – Exchange your vows at the mountaintop or a fortress tower, overlooking the town, or have an optional ceremony with a celebrant, music and first dance.
19:20 – Mini wedding session during the most romantic light of the day, with watching the sunset.

Your Croatia Elopement in Omiš - Comments
If the weather conditions make it dangerous to proceed with parts of your Croatia elopement, the itinerary might be adjusted. There is possibility to reschedule your Croatia elopement by +-2 days under the condition that everyone is available.
Other activities, such a kayaking, can be added to your Croatia elopement, either on the same day, or the next day.
Your Omiš elopement is not safe to be carried out if it rains or if the wind is too strong. In those cases, we can move your elopement in Croatia to another date that works for all of us, or you can choose to change the location of the ceremony.
Comment on legal marriage: It is possible for you to get legally married in Croatia. However, note that this will require a lot of paperwork that you will have to obtain and apostille in your country, as well as a visit to the notary in Croatia. Also note that the notary may decline to do even a short hike for the ceremony. In this case, the ceremony location can be changed to a beach ceremony, or a ceremony at a fortress situated at the edge of the town.
Every wedding that includes a foreigner must have a court interpreter present. This, together with hefty fees asked by the notary for a wedding on any location outside the notary’s office, will add to your elopement expenses.
If you still wish to have a legal ceremony during your Croatia elopement, let me know, and I will provide you with the steps needed to do so!
Unfortunately, a legal ceremony in Croatia is currently only available for heterosexual couples. If that does not apply for you, you can still have a symbolic ceremony 🙂
Comment on LGBTQ: Love is love :).
