PLAN YOUR DREAM ELOPEMENT
Eloping all started for us many years ago when we tried to plan our own dream elopement in Australia. It was so hard to find information and to actually find a venue that would cater to a small intimate wedding. Most places only wanted to do big traditional weddings or they gave us crazy minimum spends. Eventually, we found our location and we had an awesome little elopement with our parents and a few friends.
So my aim with this website is to show to everyone just how awesome elopements are, showcase what is possible and also show beautiful and intimate elopement photography. There will also be plenty of elopement articles, tips and advice for couples looking to elope.

(couple with 20 guests or less)
An elopement is when you get married with a very small number of guests, in a beautiful location, where the ceremony and the day is all about the two of you.
The number of guests is really up for debate, but we see elopements as around 20 guests. Because of the small size, you are often able to take advantage of free locations for your ceremony. National Parks, Council run parks and beaches, State Forests and Nature Reserves are all free potentially options.
Small or Micro Weddings
(couple with 40 guests or less)
Small or micro weddings are similar to elopements but the guest count is increased. You can still get married in a beautiful location, but the day becomes less about just the two of you and more about celebrating with your close family and friends. But a small or micro wedding is a great way to really connect to your closest people.
The larger size ceremony also means you will need to pay for and apply for a permit at National Parks, State Forests and Council parks and beaches.
