How to Elope at Diana’s Baths

Wonderful news: if you’re looking for an incredibly scenic, easy to access, waterfall/rapids elopement location in the North Conway area, then Diana’s Baths couldn’t be easier. Eloping at Diana’s Baths is easy, central to many additional locations to include in your day, and has breathtaking views of rapids and lush forestry, 

This beautifully brave couple wanted a private, rapidly flowing waterfall elopement at Diana’s Baths, and boy they got it. J and D were game for embracing spring in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. Embracing this season means being happily prepared for a combination of any of the following:

  • Sun, clouds, and rain, perhaps all in the same day!
  • Mud 
  • Snow
  • Ice
  • Strong rapids (as the snow melts)
  • Larger fluctuation in temperature 
  • Unpredictability 🙂 

Spring is one of the most beautiful times of year to elope because this unpredictability is part of the diverse beauty of a four season region!


Simple Tips for Eloping at Diana’s Baths:

  1. Register for your marriage license at the local town clerk’s office. For more information on how to elope in New Hampshire, click here. 
  2. Pack for ANY and everything 🙂 (packing list below) 
  3. Get there for sunrise or as early as possible. Diana’s Baths is majorly popular, and for good reason. Getting there around sunrise (like this couple) will greatly increase chances of full privacy (J and D had the ENTIRETY of Diana’s Baths to themselves!)
  4. Pick a weekday AND offseason if you can. For example, this gallery below is in April.. Just before the late Spring and Summer rush of tourists. Spring Perfect time to have an adventure elopement in the White Mountains and is ALWAYS worth the weather unpredictability…I promise! 

Packing for a Diana’s Baths Elopement in the Spring

  • Micro spikes – these can be easily purchased at your local LL Bean, REI, other sports store, or Amazon. THey attach to your hiking shoes and ensure any leftover ice from winter is no big deal as you walk : )
  • Hiking boots (the trail is flat, but having weatherproof shoes with traction is highly recommended)
  • Mud friendly mindset 
  • Rain jacket / umbrella (I always have extra umbrellas if needed)
  • Warm layers that align with your wedding wardrobe (think color, texture, overall aesthetic). Ideas for this might be: blazers, peacoats, fun hats/gloves, wraps, fun bomber jacket, fleece lined clothing, etc
  • If projected to be extra chilly, fleece lined leggings
  • Hand warmers
  • Marriage license (I can marry you and sign your license as I am ordained!)

Simply put, packing more just in case is always a safe bet. More layers, hiking gear, rain proof gear, change of shoes / socks if you get wet, hiking poles if ice is still on trails, etc., is always something I recommend couples who elope in the Spring in this region. The great news about Spring elopements: the increased privacy, the budding greenery around you, and the spontaneity of New England weather 🙂 10/10 recommend.
