About Elope With Us

Sailing & Adventure Elopements

Available for all types of weddings regardless of size or location, but specialising in elopements to adventurous & beautiful places. 

Spend this special moment of your lives in the most amazing place you can think of – on top of a mountain, in the bush, in the middle of the ocean, or even skydiving!

‘Elope With Us’ offers sailing adventures, to a beautiful beach location in Sydney Harbour only accessible by boat, to share an intimate marriage ceremony with your loved ones, followed by a relaxed afternoon of sailing, canapés & wine. 

The newlyweds can also opt to follow the celebrations with a romantic night on the yacht, surrounded by just the stars & the sea.

About Christianne Gilbert

I love being in nature & especially being in the sea. I want to share these special places with couples, on one of the most important days of their lives. 

I also love enjoying delicious food & wine & love sharing this experience with others. 

I worked as a snowboard instructor when I was younger, & for the last 7 years I have worked as a Veterinarian, which has been my passion since I was a child.

I am now wanting to spend more of my time outdoors again & have more work/life balance. There are so many exciting & beautiful places to see & experience & I feel that these locations are the best places to share vows with the person you love.

Celebrant Christianne Gilbert

My partner & I want to eventually travel the world on a yacht. I wanted to share my love of the sea, sailing & enjoying food & drink with other people, so we came up with ‘Elope With Us’. It is designed to offer couples an affordable wedding, while still being an extremely special experience for the couple & up to 20 of their closest friends/family. In the future we hope to take couples +/- a few of their favourite people for week-long trips around the Whitsundays as their combined wedding & honeymoon. We are currently saving for a yacht.

Fun Facts

I love being outdoors & being surrounded by nature, so when i’m at homeI like to spend in the garden,, growing flowers & food, & when I have time off I like to spend it away on adventures, camping in the bush or the snow. 

I love surfing, snowboarding, scuba diving, sailing & eating delicious food. 

I pretty much spend all of my time off & savings on travelling – to experience unique nature formations of the world & different cultures. I have lived & volunteered with animals in Brazil & cant wait to experience more of the world

Approach to Elopements

Weddings can come with a lot of pressure from families, to spend a lot of money, have everything immaculate, & to invite people whom you may not be close with or have otherwise chosen to invite. 

Elopements & micro-weddings are an alternative where you can celebrate your love with your partner, in the company of your most favourite people & not be pressured to spend money on anything that you don’t feel is necessary. 

I provide options of a decorated arbour, bouquet, photographer, food & drink & the couple can decide how simple or fancy they would like their experience to be. 

The best part is that there are no rules for elopements – your experience can be tailored specifically for how you want it to be. 

I fully support same-sex marriages & I also support couples who wish to have a pet at their wedding ceremony, as pets are part of the family for many couples.

“Christi was the most amazing person to have by our side for our wedding! She was super organised & made us feel completely relaxed on our wedding day. She is such a down to earth, genuine person & we really connected with her, which made a huge impact on our day & made it so much more special, as if we were celebrating with an old friend. ”

She brought a beautiful energy to the day
“Christi really does offer a wonderful service. From being a lovely person who made us feel comfortable from the very beginning, to making everyone laugh & cry during our ceremony. She brought a beautiful energy to the day, & was genuinely passionate about ensuring that we enjoyed our wedding day. “
Byron
Christi was the absolute perfect celebrant!
“Christi was the absolute perfect celebrant! Organised, calming & most of all, was just a real pleasure to work with. 
She provided several different options for the type of ceremony we wanted & what we wanted included. She was professional but also allowed the ceremony to feel really relaxed, as we had hoped. 
I love our photo memories of us reading our vows with Christi’s smiling face with us. ”
