Elopements

Intimate weddings can be quite unique, touchingly poignant, elegant and so, so romantic.

An elopement is just that: romance, intimacy and love: a marriage with just yourselves, a celebrant and two witnesses.
Many couples are opting for a simpler alternative to the large weddings these days. You may be seeking the romance of an elopement, or simply wishing to seal a long-term relationship with a special ceremony, or perhaps looking to spend their budget on a bigger honeymoon holiday. No matter what the reasons, an elopement is a meaningful and memorable alternative to a trip to the registry office, and can be a much more affordable alternative to a large wedding.

Choose from a range of affordable packages on elopement and small wedding ceremonies starting at $500.

What they had to say…

Kari is exactly what we were looking for in a celebrant. We wanted a very personal, creative ceremony; a secluded location with our two closest friends as witnesses and with none of those traditional vows and promises that most other couples opt for. We are big on personality, individuality and creativity and we wanted our ceremony to reflect that. Working alongside Kari we created the event of our dreams, with the perfect mixture of laughter and solemness. We are creative people who like to work together on projects and Kari took our idea for an artistic element and incorporated it into our ceremony. Not only was the ceremony planned and executed perfectly but she also made us feel extremely comfortable and well taken care of. Thank-you Kari for being a huge part of making our day one of the most special we have ever experienced.”

Not even five minutes into our first meeting, Aaron and I knew you were the perfect celebrant for us. You enchanted us with your warmth, kindness and confidence. Our wish was for a simple ceremony that came from the heart, you well and truly delivered. We couldn’t be happier with how you composed and presented our ceremony. Thank you so much for all of your suggestions, support and guidance. Our day would not have been as special as it was without your presence.”
