ELOPEMENTS

PACKAGE ONE: NO FRILLS, JUST THE LEGAL THRILLS

This package is as simple as it gets - all we need is you two, two witnesses and moi! If simple and stress free is your thing I can highly recommend this option.

What happens:

  • You submit your Notice of Intended Marriage - either face to face with me or by filling it in yourselves, getting it witnessed by an appropriate authority and then scanning and emailing me a copy. If you email me a copy I would then collect the original off you at our elopement so that I am able to legally register the marriage
  • We lock in an evening to meet once the minimum one months waiting period has lapsed - I reserve us a green velvet booth in Redfern's awesome little pocket bar - GUNTHER'S DINING ROOM (AKA G.D.R)
  • You bring your two witnesses, we say the minimum legal wording/sign all the paperwork
  • VOILA!  You're legally, officially, super duper married!  We crack open some bubbles and you get to have an awesome evening out as a newlywed couple.  Simples.
  • I registered your marriage online and apply for your registered marriage certificate at the same time

Please note:

  • Package only available Tues-Fri and Sunday evenings from 5pm - 8pm
  • Witnesses must be over 18
  • A different time or location other than what is listed above is possible - contact me for more info

FEES

  • You receive a service agreement including an itemised fee schedule upon confirmation of booking

PACKAGE TWO: SOMETHING A LITTLE MORE SUBSTANTIAL

For those who wish to include some key people in their day but still avoid the huge amount of planning that comes with organising a full-blown wedding, package two is for you.  

What happens:

  • You submit your Notice of Intended Marriage - either face to face with me or by filling it in yourselves, getting it witnessed by an appropriate authority and then scanning and emailing me a copy.  If you email me a copy I would then collect the original off you at our elopement so that I am able to legally register the marriage
  • You have your choice of venue anywhere in the Sydney Metro area
  • You have your choice of date and time - pending my availability
  • You can invite up to 20 guests
  • I provide you with example vows, vow writing tips and a simple ceremony script that can be personalised in subtle ways
  • We get together with your loved ones and I marry you however you wish - on a picnic blanket, in a big group hug with your guests, on a cliff top, sitting down to lunch or dinner.  Whatever low key way you choose to do this is alright with me
  • After the elopement I register your marriage online and apply for your registered marriage certificate at the same time

Please note:

  • This package is designed to be very simple and unlike a wedding as it would be commonly visualised
  •  Any wedding parties or additional guests over the 20 outlined above would need to be discussed with me at time of booking

OTHER SERVICES

WE'RE HERE FOR A GOOD TIME

Life is chaotic, wondrous and all too short.  As such, I think all major milestones are worth definitely worth celebrating.  (Huge on birthdays in my house here FYI, HUGE)

While an authorised celebrant isn't actually necessary for the following, leaving the commemoration of an important life event in the hands of a professional "celebrator" (yes, that is what I am, it is as excellent as it sounds) can leave you to relax and enjoy the moment.

Extra services provided:

  • Baby Namings
  • Renewal of Vows
  • Commitment Ceremonies

No legal requirements for the above but lots of scope for creativity and meaning!  

FEES

POA

Contact me with your idea for the celebration and I'll provide you with a reasonable quote based on my time, experience, your venue and the date.  Let's make a party!
