“Do you want all the Instagram-able moments of a traditional wedding, without the price tag?”


Heya, I'm Sarah-jane!

Elope + Micro weddings Byron Bay, Tweed Coast + Gold Coast

Our secret sauce? We create a VIBE! Our sole focus is to ensure your day is an epic memory and the process was EFFORTLESS!

After each elopement, we look at each other and say *YES* that's how a wedding should *FEEL*

You'll find us barefoot at the beach, bantering with guests and chasing golden light for breathtaking wedding photography (sneak peek in 24hrs!)!

We're multi-award winning with an effortless destination wedding planning process - it's all about the EXPERIENCE :)

The Vision, The Vibe, The Origin


The key to success in business is to CONNECT and LISTEN! I curated Luxe Elopements after 14 years in the wedding industry. Before "eloping" was cool, before the pandemic, before the cost of living and housing crisis. The sentiment was the same... we want a beautiful wedding without the price tag or guest list drama. My couples were trying to save for a house, travel, had blended families, wanted to start a family or were simply SHY! The average Byron Bay wedding at the time was $68K! That was BEFORE covid and the cost of living crisis - OUCH. You want the beautiful location, stunning florals, THE dress and epic photography... you don't want to invite Aunty-Jo's-Best-Friends-Cousins-Horse and you want the day to reflect your personal styled and taste! You want a Micro Wedding with your VIP's where you get to spend quality time with them.


I listened, I created, I developed, I listened more and kept growing... 6 years later, we have an established and trusted brand with a team of passionate creatives ready to bring your vision to life! Let's get you married :)

Elopement + Micro Wedding Packages

How does it work?


Our Luxury Elopement and Micro Wedding packages are in Byron Bay, Tweed Coast, and Southern Gold Coast at Sunrise or Sunset at a beach or venue! Imagine your wedding day barefoot in white sand with sweeping ocean views, or on a 300-acre farm with rolling hills, under a waterfall or a Micro Wedding with your VIP’S at a gorgeous Airbnb!


We are able to offer luxury elopements and micro weddings with high-end vendors by servicing weddings on Mondays to Thursdays with up to 25 x guests. This framework allows you to have all of the luxuries of a traditional wedding like lavish florals and an award-winning photographer!


We hate that we have to spell it out but it’s a HELL YES to Same-Sex couples! We LOVE working with kids (give me ALLLLL the babies and rambunctious toddlers!) and your fur babies!


We are proud to be multi-award winning for our wedding experiences, effortless packages, and our exclusive online wedding planning processes! Sarah-Jane (owner, photographer and planner) and Leisa (Celebrant and Planner) will be by your side every step of the way! We understand planning a destination wedding can be overwhelming and that’s why we created our award-winning, 3-stage online process to ensure the experience is effortless and fun.


ABOUT SJ


I'm 38 years young with 14+ years of experience in all aspects of a wedding day: I am an award-winning Wedding Photographer, Wedding Planner and (Ex) Hair and Makeup artist! This unique insight into wedding days, from all angles, is what sets me apart.


I am the Queen of putting out fires without you knowing. My superpower is making people feel comfortable in front of my lens - kids, shy brides and husbands who hate photos are my speciality ;) I have a big, positive and fun-loving disposition – I have hand-picked a team who reflect my attitude and ethos. The key to success is to never stop learning, growing and leveling UP!


I moved to Byron Bay when I was 21 and fell in love with the energy and I was inspired by the creative entrepreneurial Women! I lived in Byron for 10 x years before settling on the Tweed Coast (cos who can afford Byron – haha) in 2017 with my daughters Sophia (14) and Bella (7) and fur babies Rusty (King Charles) and Jackie (Labrador).


I know all the best spots, the local weather and happy to share all my inside knowledge with you!


If you can’t tell… I live and breathe WEDDINGS!

“Wow!! Where do we start, SJ and the team are AMAZING.

With just 1 phone consult with SJ, she planned our dream wedding.


We had our Micro wedding at Stonehill Estate, in Wooyung.

We had such a stress free experience from the start and the attention to detail on the day was phenomenal.


We received our sneak peak photos by lunch time the following day and they were the most amazing photos we had seen.

Everyone from the Luxe Elopements team went above and beyond to make our day perfect, and we honestly can’t fault anything.


If you are thinking about booking a micro wedding through Luxe Elopements, DO IT - you won’t regret it.

If we could go back and do it all over again, we wouldn’t change a thing! Thank you all for most amazing day. Kimberley & Keiran xxx”

I discovered SJ whilst researching micro weddings and elopements online and after checking her socials and website we very quickly decided that we were not having anyone else! The ease of EVERYTHING was something I only hoped for when planning a wedding from the information provided , the phone consults and venue , she provided advice on location and after a slight hiccup with possibility there was a surf comp and we would have to choose a new location she took the time to advise alternatives, luck however was on our side and we ended up at the original choice as it was cancelled ! Our timeline was provided early so I didnt have to wait over Xmas break to recieve it and honestly the entire process was seamless anf  it honestly felt so easy , so many people commented how I was the most relaxed bride leading up to the day and how could I not be when SJ took care of everything. A team of carefully selected vendors , who are seriously INCREDIBLE !!! Her recommendations on where to stay and what to do and a fb group to chat to other upcoming brides . The day before our wedding arrived the weather was pretty awful and SJ sent a text advising all would be ok . It rained all night and when morning came it was sprinkling and there were some umbrellas on hand and low and behold we had a perfect morning . I was calm , relaxed and knew that even if it rained SJ had us covered which made our day the most extraordinary stress free and beautiful day. From the florals to the arbour and beautiful breakfast picnic it was everything we had envisioned and more, SJ and her super assistant Shari made our day simply magical. Every single one of our guests commented on how beautiful well organised and just perfect our ceremony  was. SJ engaged with our guests , captured our most special and cherished moments and had sneak peaks up within an he of our ceremony and less than 12hrs after we had a gallery full of photos. There is not one thing I would change or do different about our day and I honestly cannot thank her or recommend her enough! Honestly 5 stars is not enough for how amazing she was ! SJ you are incredible , your team is incredible and you made our day the most magical day that exceeded my expectations and they were already high from all the reviews and photos we had seen! We are truly so so grateful and we both had THE BEST wedding. YOU ARE AMAZING !!! We truly are so grateful for you xxx

“Our experience with Luxe Elopements was the absolute best. If you want a small wedding with luxury-big-wedding vibes but you're time poor, not from the area or you just want none of the stress - THIS IS THE TEAM FOR YOU.


We booked the LUXE Micro-wedding package and had extra on-the-day coordination. We had such a relaxed day (and engagement/wedding planning) knowing SJ and the team had everything handled. From a Pinterest board (and a few extra phone chats) everything was pulled together better than we could have ever imagined (seriously we had absolutely dreamy florals).


The icing on the (wedding) cake is getting SO MANY sneak peeks so quickly (barely 24hours later for us) and getting to re-live the day over and over. Thanks for an amazing day.”

“I don’t even know where to start - I couldn’t have asked for a better experience with SJ and her whole team. I was incredibly nervous in the lead up to our big day but they had everything covered and went above and beyond to make our day perfect. From the makeup artist, to the celebrant and musician, they calmed my nerves and made me feel so comfortable. I was honestly expecting there to be atleast one thing that didn’t go to plan on the day, but everything turned out exactly how I envisioned it, in fact it was better than I ever could’ve imagined.

Then to top it all off the ‘sneak peak’ we received 24 hours later blew me away even more. SJ is incredible at what she does I will be recommending her to everyone I know!”

Unfortunately weather was not on our side on the day but SJ made sure that everything still went smoothly and the vibes remained high. She kept me feeling relaxed and I trusted that everything would be fine with her in control. We ended up having the best time and I couldn’t be more thankful to Luxe Elopements! She also sent through a huge sneak peak gallery within 24 hours full of photos that we absolutely love and will cherish forever.”

“From the very beginning SJ handled all of our questions with professionalism and ease. We could tell from our first conversation that SJ lives and breathes weddings!


SJ truely understood our vision and she went above and beyond to bring our dream wedding to life. Her attention to detail ensured that the entire planning process was stress free for us.


On the day of the wedding SJ transitioned into the role of a photographer, capturing every precious moment. Her photos truely captured the love and essence of our day to make the beautiful memory of our wedding day last a lifetime. Her point of difference was providing us with 198 edited sneak peak photos within 24hours of our wedding, which was so exciting and people still to this day ask how it was possible. This just shows how dedicated SJ is to her work and how truely passionate she is about it.


Not only were we impressed with Luxe Elopements work but our guests couldn’t stop raving about the wedding and all the little touches that made it so unique and special. We whole heartedly recommend SJ and Luxe Elopements for anyone seeking a stress free and unforgettable wedding. Her ability to understand and execute our vision was truely amazing. If we could go back and do it all over again, we wouldn’t change a thing! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Justin and Brooke xx

No bridal anxiety at all because of how stress free and fun the whole process was. We couldn’t have made a better decision than trusting the Luxe team with the planning, organisation and running of one of the best days of our lives.

Thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts xo”

“The most magical wedding fairies!!!! We eloped with Luxe Elopements a year ago and I'm only just leaving a review now.... Could you imagine how I'd go at trying to plan a wedding myself? SJ and the team did an absolutely phenomenal job and I barely had to do a thing - just put together a Pinterest board and filled out a questionnaire and somehow they created a ceremony better than I could have imagined. I have no doubt that if I wanted to have more input, the option was there to do so, however after seeing their work online I was comfortable leaving it all in their hands and was not disappointed. We were lucky enough to have Leisa who performed a ceremony that had everyone smiling and/or crying. We eloped with our immediate family and they all had a great time. SJ's photography captured the day beautifully (her photos which I saw online during COVID lockdowns in Melbourne were the real selling point for booking everything remotely) - memories we'll treasure for life, thank you 💕”

“We originally wanted to just sign some papers and be married already, but after speaking with one of the celebrants (Leisa) and checking out Luxe Elopements online, we decided that we would elope.


Luxe Elopements allowed us to finally tie the knot after being engaged for 9 years, 2 children later, and still have a beautiful ceremony with photography, flower arrangements, a bouquet and hair and makeup without breaking the bank! We would never have been able to organise all of this on our own for such an amazing price and we are still stunned at how amazing SJ and her team were. From the beginning we were well looked after, and their process is smooth, stress free and most importantly simple.


It was absolutely more than we could have asked for and we are beyond happy with everything. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone. We honestly should have done this so much sooner had we known how easy and affordable it could be!


We didn't invite most family apart from my sister to help with out children, so when SJ sent through her sneak peak photos (which are beyond superb quality) within 24 hours we were over the moon and my family are all amazed at how beautiful the ceremony seemed and how wonderful the photos were.”

“My husband and I booked the Luxe package for 25 guests through Luxe Elopements for our wedding in November at Stonehill Estate and could not be happier with how everything turned out. Nearly everything was taken care of through our package, taking much of the stress out of planning our big day. We are not local to the area, so having access to Luxe Elopement’s list of contacts was priceless.


Everything turned out even better than we could have imagined, from my bouquet and florals, to our arbour, coordination and wedding photos. Our celebrant Leisa was amazing and put me at ease the whole morning before the ceremony. We added on extra coordination for the day and I’m very happy I did, we didn’t have to lift a finger and everything was run seamlessly.


All our guests said it was the best wedding they had ever been to, I can’t recommend enough! Thank you Sarah-Jane and Leisa for organising such and amazing day for me, my husband and our friends and family. Truly one of the best moments of my life, thank you!.”
