How does it 

What does it mean to Elope?

These days, we think of eloping as a couple travelling somewhere to get married without telling or inviting any or all of their family and friends. It's for couples who don't want a big 'traditional' wedding and prefer to focus on each other. It's highly romantic!

What are the legal requirements?

In order for your elopement to be legally recognised as a marriage, you need to follow certain rules. You must 'give notice' at your local registry office at least 29 days before your ceremony date. When you give notice, you'll need to let them know your choice of venue and the local authority where the wedding will take place. Of course, you need to be of legal age (16+). You'll need 2 witnesses to attend the ceremony (we'll be delighted to be your witnesses).

Planning your day

Your registrar will contact you and discuss the ceremony with you. You can choose from various options as to how the ceremony is put together. It's all pretty simple and straightforward.

As for planning the rest of the day, we will be very happy to work closely with you to help choose what and who you need to make your day perfect. We help make your planning painless and stress-free. You can choose from our handpicked team of local suppliers, selected by us with utmost care to give you excellent service delivered with warmth and sensitivity. Our recommendations include everything you might need, including Hair and Make-up, Photography and Film, Florists, Wedding Cakes, Restaurants, Taxis, and even Wedding Rings.

See our FAQ for more information.

Choose a Celebrant Ceremony (non-legal) or Registrar (legal) marriage ceremony.

We are an approved venue for legal marriages. 


However, if you prefer, you can choose a Celebrant Ceremony, which doesn't have legal status. 

A Celebrant Ceremony is also perfect for couples who'd like to renew their Vows.
