FAQ's

How does it work?

We make it easy.

Touch base via our contact form and tell us your details.

We will correspond with you via phone or email and help plan your elopement, lock in your date via a deposit and we'll do the rest

What do you need from us?
The legal part of it is easy, (boring but essential stuff), don't worry we take care of that too. We just need a few things from you to pop that together in prep for your ceremony. Click here for more info.

Do you perform same sex ceremonies?
We kind of feel sad we have to mention it, but YES, YES YES, we support all forms of love

What does our package cover?
At the very least your package is inclusive of your celebrant, a photographer and a venue/space where you will be married.  The inclusions increase with the package upgrades.

 

Can we have food arranged?
Yes!  Whether it just be the two of you or up to 20 guests we have venue options that have restaurants onsite or alternatively organise everything for you as a micro wedding in our own exclusive privater dining space with the top venues in our regions.

Can I organise a bouquet?
Of course.  We have a range of floral options that will suit you for your elopement.

Why can we only elope Monday - Thursday?

There so many reasons for this, the first and most important is we can't bring you a small intimate wedding for this price Friday-Sunday.  Most venue partners we have don't allow any other weddings to take place during the week, we are lucky to have exclusive agreements with some of these partners. This means you're receiving access to venues which you wouldn't normally be able to have for this size wedding.  Venues pride themselves in offering full wedding packages over the Friday-Sunday times, therefore it means these beautiful places are off limits to other patrons for those days.  Elope.yv offers you the chance to have you wedding in at stunning exclusive venues that wouldn't have been available to you.

How many guests can we have?

You can have just the two of you or up to 20 guests.  We can accommodate more guests depending on your venue choice.

Do you only do elopements in the Yarra Valley?
No. We have an elopement team state and Australia wide, we can perform your elopement in your back yard!  Just ask us how and we can make it happen.

If we find a place we like can you organise our elopement there?

We will endeavour to make your elopement happen, some venues choose to only allow large weddings to take place on their grounds, there are 90+ wedding venues in the Yarra Valley alone we know most of them and have worked in most spaces, just let us know what your thinking and we'll work on it to make your vision come true.

Do you help us plan other aspects of our elopement?
Yes.  We have an award winning videographer, florist, accommodation partners, car hire options, Hair and Make up contacts. We have an amazing black book of vendors that can hook you up with all those touches to further personalise your day

Why?

Why Elope?
There is a million reasons why this type of wedding is the fastest growing wedding in the world.  Elopements or small weddings, enable you to have it your way and really create a wedding ceremony that is as intimate as you like.

  • Some couples want that moment they say I do for themselves

  • Some couples prefer to have the ceremony with their closest family and friends and then have a larger party afterwards

  • Having a secret ceremony then sharing your news later with a video and photographs of your day can be such a fabulous way to announce your marriage

  • No fuss easy way to be married without having to worry about the planning aspect

  • Less expense save over 20 times what a large wedding would cost you

  • Love the idea of a small registry office wedding with a hell of a lot nicer backdrop and personalised ceremony

  • Don't want the fuss, just want to say the legal wording then go off and have your own celebration.

  • Need to get the legal part down here in Australia before jetting overseas for your big wedding
