australian elopement packages.
These aren’t your usual elopement packages; these experiences are about focusing on creating an authentic experience for you.
eloping gives you a stress-free and authentic experience.
tailored to how you want to get married.
Your story with your partner is something super special. I believe that no two couples are alike, which is why you deserve an elopement package that suits you both, and which can give you a day unlike any other.
Treating couples like a number just isn’t my style. Your relationship isn’t cut from a mould, so why should you be treated that way?
My packages aren’t all-inclusive.
they are unbundled to give you more choice.
your day, your way.
unbundled elopement packages set you free.
Instead of a stuffy, rigid, and ‘turn and churn’ system, you deserve a day that has been crafted to your desires, dreams, and choices.
My ‘Unbundled’ Elopement Packages instead come from having a focus on how you want your day to go, and what matters most to you. So many ‘all inclusive’ elopement packages come with needless extras, and rigid vendors who don’t suit your story or style.
Instead you’ll get an experience that suits you, and is customised to give your story and love the chance to be celebrated.

let your personalities shine through.
An elopement is an intentional experience designed to celebrate who you both are. Having a cookie cutter plan won’t make the cut for you.
This means that your elopement from start to finish will be designed so that you can have the day of your dreams.
Whether that involves celebrating with friends and family, or carving out your own adventure, travelling around forests, exploring waterfalls, or even stargazing with pizza at your own private cabin.
I’m here for however you’d want to start your marriage. My unbundled elopement packages means that you can have the freedom to celebrate your connection and relationship without constraints.
So you can be yourselves, and shrug off all of the pressure.
so how does it all work?

tell the whole story.
the ultimate experience.
It might sound a bit wild to start with; an all day elopement being documented.
However, when thinking about going big on your wedding, it doesn’t have to involve feeding 200 people, hiring a huge venue, and hiring loads of vendors to suit the family.
I recommend having your awesome adventure documented, so that you’re instead going to have:
what would be your idea of the most enjoyable day ever, from sunrise to sunset?
this isn’t about having an all day ‘photoshoot’.
this is about documenting your journey.
The truth is that if I had someone yelling out poses to me for 12 hours, I’d hate it. Trust me.
However, the reason you are eloping isn’t to have an all day photoshoot. The reason you are getting married is to celebrate your story and your love, in an authentic and personal way.
I’m coming along for the ride just to document you having the most awesome and intimate day ever. The focus is on you, but you only have to focus on each other.
you deserve to have an authentic day that suits you.
You want to start your marriage with an experience, and a day to look back and remember with warmth and love.

photo coverage by james
The start of your marriage won’t be a stressed, rushed and chore filled photoshoot. Instead, it is about learning who you are through comfortable prompts, and capturing candid moments between the two of you. It’ll be like having a friend along for the ride, and just being yourselves. No smoke and mirrors.
polished final images
You’ll receive a beautiful set of polished, full resolution photos which tell the story of the day and capturing the real you. You’ll have these delivered in a stunning online gallery, including password protection, downloads, and sharing, so that everyone you’d love can see the day you had.
tailored location list
Your tastes and preferences in landscape and scenery is unique to yourselves, and so for every couple, I create a personalised list of locations for their elopement. All the photos you’ll see on here are from couples who didn’t even know these locations existed before they hired me.
local elopement vendor suggestions + unique activity ideas
As soon as you’ve chosen one or more of the many awesome locations I’d recommend, I then spend the time to curate specific vendors for you to help build your unbundled elopement package up. From florists, to celebrants, and even exciting activities you can do the local area, I love to cover everything for you to have a great time.
personally designed timeline
Once your location is set, vendors are booked, then I’ll get to work on engineering the perfect timeline for you both, based upon your preferences. I’ll recommend locations, timings and movements based on the best lighting, and time of day. I’ll also cover you for wet weather plans and ensure that your experience is complete.
