Welcome to part 2 of Dave & Amber's epic Uluru elopement. If you missed part 1 of this excellent adventure you can find it here.
Now this post has the proper Uluru part of this Uluru elopement. We shot this elopement over two days in different locations. The first day Dave & Amber held their ceremony in the middle of a dry salt lake. Day 2 finds us in the stunning Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park for the sunrise.
This was my first ever trip out to Uluru and let me tell you the pictures really just do not do it justice. The red earth, soft yellow grass tones and huge red rock formations are truly breathtaking. Getting into the park nice and early was a fantastic option given the temperature during the afternoon is usually above 30°C. The way the first light hit the rock was absolutely mesmerising. I don't know if I've ever let out so many involuntary squeals while photographing than I did during this few hours of exploring Uluru as the light hit all the amazing outback colours and everything just looked like magic.

If you're considering eloping and you're after some more practical tips than just inspiration. I've written a blog post on how to elope at Cradle Mountain in Tasmania. A lot of those tips will be useful for the procedures for eloping at Uluru, (with the notable exception of the weather). I'll be blogging more this year with how to guides for brides & grooms looking to have adventurous weddings.
