It’s a devastating time for many couples, who have either chosen to postpone their wedding or had their plans canceled due to new legislation to battle this crisis. The benefit of an elopement in this unpredictable and immensely scary climate is truly that LOVE WINS! What the world needs at this time are more love and good news, so for couples whose marriage is more important than a wedding, an elopement is an awesome idea. In conjunction with our team of professional videographers, we have been developing options to offer LIVE STREAMING of the ceremony to guests who are isolated and what a better way to spread joy through our family and friends! Generally, elopements are a lot less formal and much more relaxed than traditional weddings, so couples have the option to have a bit more fun, whether that be to choose an adventurous location for the ceremony or the fact that the bride gets to wear her dress twice if they choose to party again later with their loved ones!
Sure, can! You can have guests listed in our packages and in accordance with current laws, ie: social distancing.
Our elopements feature a beautiful, personalised and meaningful ceremony with our Civil Marriage Celebrant at a location chosen by the couple (think beach, rainforest, waterfall or mountain top). If the couple opt for live streaming, guests will be included in the magic of the celebration through this service. After the ceremony, the couple are all loved up and legally married, we capture their love glow with a photography portrait session. Couples also have the choice to soak in the moment further with a grazing platter for two OR a dinner box prepared by our private chef to enjoy in their accommodation.
Our elopements are perfect for couples who has been displaced by the current crisis and don’t want to wait to make their marriage official. The best thing about elopements is that couples can lovingly take care of their legal marriage, and still hold a reception at a later date, all the while adhering to the current policies but in place to keep our larger community safe. Our elopements are also perfect for anyone financially impacted by this crisis and may need to divert their wedding funds to other important aspects of their lives, but still, feel getting married is really important to them.
In the evident one of us becomes ill we have a team of vendors who will effortlessly slip into the role.
