The Process

Outline of the process

Want to know how it works? Let us quickly outline it for you.

Get in touch! Let us know what you are planning for your elopement experience. We are here to help you create a small, intimate elopement, to be held from Monday to Thursday. We take bookings up to 12 months in advance. You can choose from a range of locations, including some awesome venue collabs that we have listed on our Packages page.

Lock it in, Eddy.

You’re keen to proceed?! WOO YEAHHHHH. I mean, ahem – it’s fantastic to have you on board. Let us know how and where you would like to celebrate, and we’ll be there with bells on!

To begin, you pay our $250 booking fee and agree to our terms and conditions to lock in our services.

Chat it out with us

Let us help you create a day that is intentionally ‘you’. We want your day to reflect your love, and we have SO many ideas if you’re stuck on what to do! But ultimately, we are here to listen and bring your vision to life. Let’s chat!

The legal stuff

At least 30 days prior to your elopement, you’ll need to lodge your Notice of Intended Marriage, so that we can legally marry you! Once you book with us, we will guide you through this process. Just need a lil bit of identification, a scribbling of signatures and a sprinkling of commitment from you two.

Something to keep in mind, you’ll also need two witnesses on the day (one of which can be your photographer), so we’ll discuss this with you.

Your celebrant will lodge your marriage with the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages after the day, and apply for your Official Marriage Certificate to be sent to your address once registered.

Let’s Elope!

The big day will swing around, and we’ll have a grand old time. Promise. Rain, hail or shine – let’s embrace the special occasion of your love. The ceremony happens, then pretty photos happen. The rest is up to you!

Receive your pics. Woo!

Jake will send your pics through online gallery link within 4-6 weeks. Share them wherever you’d like! We’d love to share your day online too (just let us know if you will want to keep your images private AT THE TIME you book with us, so we can make a clear note on our end!).
