Mid-week Elopements

I LOVE mid-week elopements! Happy to take bookings 12 months ahead, although usually elopements have a much-faster turnaround than that. See travel policy below.

Weekend Elopements

Yep! Bookings as far as 12 months ahead, but with less to organise, most of my elopements are booked 2-6 months ahead.

Travel

I focus on Perth weddings to minimise my carbon footprint, and there are awesome local celebrants in pretty much every location. However, I do love exploring our beautiful country so if you think I’m the celebrant for you, let’s chat and I’ll see if I can make it work in with a getaway. 
If your wedding or other ceremony is outside of Perth metro, or more than one hour’s drive from East Victoria Park, additional costs to cover travel and accommodation will apply.


About Sally Bruce Celebrant

I help awesome Perth couples create fun, personal,
eco-friendly wedding ceremonies. 

I specialise in chilled elopements!

I encourage my couples to only include the elements that are meaningful and significant to them in their ceremonies – not just repeating all the ‘usual’ wedding expectations because they think they ‘should’. 

Instead of single-use stuff, we use meaningful words to personalise the ceremony – I encourage my couples to write their own vows. 

I want to do more than just be an awesome celebrant. I want to lead by example, give back, and support businesses and organisations which align with my values.

From the refillable pen handmade from reclaimed timber that we’ll use to sign your paperwork, to driving my carbon-offset hybrid vehicle to your ceremony, to my cruelty-free lipstick, know that I have researched and made considered, conscious choices about every aspect of this business, just as I do in my life.

Some examples are: my home office is solar-powered and mostly paperless; any necessary printing is done on 100% recycled paper. I rewear my ceremony outfits many times and only use cruelty-free makeup. I meet my couples at local cafes with a sustainable ethos. 

​This business has the permaculture values of Earth Care, People Care and Fair Share at its core.


Earth care: I care about environmental sustainability in day-to-day business operations and also help couples and families plan eco-conscious ceremonies and events.

People care: Love comes in many forms and I respect and honour this in all my communications. Products are sourced with ethical and social responsibility in mind.

​Fair share: I maintain a healthy balance between work and play. Prioritising self-care means I can be a better celebrant and the business can give more back.

eco-friendly wedding ceremonies.

About Sally Bruce

I love animals! If you would like your pet to be part of your ceremony, I’m your gal!

I married my favourite person, Dan, on the side of cliff in the Blue Mountains of NSW in 2002.  Together we’re raising one awesome human, a brilliant three-legged rescue dog, a fabulous flock of chickens, and a wild and messy garden (that is either flourishing in winter rains or struggling through the summer heat).

I’m a professional actor who has been performing and speaking in front of people for over 30 years, and a wordsmith who loves language and understands the power of story.

I’m passionate about treading lightly on the Earth and caring for our planet. This flows through all areas of my life, from the sustainable clothes I wear to never wasting food.

As a Commonwealth-registered Marriage Celebrant with the Attorney- General’s Department, I will organise all the necessary legals and paperwork, and legally marry you – anywhere in Australia. And getting two people in love married is my favourite thing to do!

I’m super-organised and reliable – traits I used to think were boring, but now realise are actually really important for a calm life!

Fun Facts

– Sydney born and raised, but Perth’s been home for nearly 20 years now

– My voice might sound familiar as I do voiceovers as part of my acting work. I usually narrate information videos, although I have recorded character voices for an audiobook

-I’m obsessed with fermenting, and my kitchen is filled with homemade sourdough, yogurt, pickles and preserves

Approach to Elopements

No cookie cutters here! Every couple I marry is different, and so is every ceremony! We work together to co-create a ceremony that 100% reflects you as a couple.

Getting married should be fun. I don’t believe the hype that planning a wedding should be stressful, and outdated tropes like ‘bridezillas’ need to go. 
I make the process easy and enjoyable, with an organised timeline so you won’t feel rushed.

Elopement Special

Testimonials

Sally was able to help two people who hate being the centre of attention feel so excited to be able to share the day with our closest loved ones.
“From our first meeting with Sally, we knew we had made the right decision; we both felt so comfortable, and like we were catching up with a friend.
Sally was able to help us construct a ceremony that was perfectly “us”, by taking our very vague ideas and questions, providing the perfect advice and then turning those ideas into reality.
On the day, everything was FUN and ran perfectly smoothly, all thanks to Sally’s preparation.

An absolutely fantastic experience with Sally as our celebrant. 
“An absolutely fantastic experience with Sally as our celebrant. 
My wife and I had an elopement ceremony and are incredibly grateful as Sally made us feel comfortable and had many ideas that we wouldn’t have thought of! 
We were looking for a celebrant who would be LGBTQ friendly as the both of us were new to Perth so had no idea who to select. 
Sally and photographer Kat made the both of us feel so comfortable and brought our ideas to life.
We knew we made the right choice in selecting these two to be a part of our magical day! I highly recommend having Sally Bruce as a celebrant for any elopement or wedding.”
