What Is An Elopement?

An elopement is a small & legally binding wedding ceremony with 2 - 30 guests that involves the same formalities of a traditional wedding ceremony. Eloping often refers to getting married in secret with the goal of having fewer people present, saving money and ensuring the focus of the wedding is on what's important to the couple.

Elopements have evolved over the last 20 years in line with social & economic trends. Whereas 20 years ago a couple who eloped were likely doing so in secret without the approval of parents. These days elopements are highly likely to involve the couple's parents as one of a handful of wedding guests to receive an invitation.

How To Elope

The one & only thing you need to elope in Australia is an authorised marriage celebrant who will officiate your wedding and organise and submit your legal paperwork. Everything beyond the celebrant is optional, and where you can put your personal touches to this very special day - or weekend - or week. 

There are no rules when it comes to eloping. You can do whatever the heck you like, however the heck you like - with the words "I do" thrown in at precisely whenever the heck you like. There are however three legalities that need to be ticked off to make your marriage official. 

To be legally wed by elopement in Australia you must:
  1. Complete a Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) at least one month before your wedding date
  2. Provide ID as requested by your celebrant
  3. Attend your wedding ceremony, repeat the required wording & sign the marriage register

Elopement Packages

One of the easiest and cheapest ways to elope in Australia is to book an elopement package with a venue that specialises in small and intimate weddings. The best elopement wedding venues in Australia offer two distinct packages:

Elopements increase in price from there, depending on the additional services added.

Elopement Costs

Here's a breakdown of individual elopement costs. The price of an elopement depends on what you choose to include in your special day. The only necessary spend to get legally married when you elope, is the celebrant.

Elopement Checklist

Here's a few ideas & a basic elopement checklist to help you get started planning the best damn day of your life so far...

1. Decide what’s important!

Why are you eloping? It may be to skip the fuss of a huge wedding ceremony and perhaps you’re keen to keep costs down. But there’s also a vision you want to achieve that involves a more intimate audience.  

Elopement Guide Australia
Plan an elopement that fits with who you both are. Image: Cavanagh Photography

Talk to your partner about what you both value and what getting married means to you.  Think about what you’re going to say with your wedding and what it says about you. Then find a meaningful location and people who share your values to help you bring your wedding vision to life.

2. Create an elopement budget

Weddings are pricey, even small ones. Most couples who elope in Australia choose one or two items of importance to ‘splurge’ on (such as venue, celebrant or photography), and look to save on the budget in other areas. Your wedding is a very special moment in your life. So think about what you want the most from your special day and be generous to yourself in those areas. 

3. Choose an elopement location

Among the best places to elope in Australia include world-heritage locations, secret hideaways, romantic escapes and iconic venues. When choosing where to elope, think about what is most important to you. For example, you may like to consider a location;

  • that has meaning such as where you first met, had your first date or got engaged
  • that is near family & friends
  • where you can elope & honeymoon in one location
  • that enables your favourite pastimes such as bushwalking or swimming in the ocean

A destination elopement is not the only kind of elopement. Other places to elope include local parks and beaches, chapels & churches, cultural venues such as libraries or art galleries, or you can have an at home elopement where a celebrant comes to you.

Fig Tree Park Elopement Place
Australia has plenty of small wedding venues for an intimate elopement like this French-style elopement venue: Fig Tree Park

4. Hire an officiant

An authorised celebrant is legally required to make the wedding official, so your celebrant, by default, is always the most important (other) person at your wedding regardless of what type of ceremony you’re having. You can’t get married without them. But if you choose to elope, the role your celebrant will play in marrying you and the way they perform the ceremony is quite unique. 

By definition, an elopement is an intimate celebration with very few guests. Instead of addressing a large audience, your celebrant will be addressing everyone at your ceremony on a more individual level. Celebrants who specialise in elopements know how to create an atmosphere and a momentous event of your wedding with just a handful of people present.

Hire a specialist elopement celebrant in the location you intend to elope. Elopement celebrants will perform your official wedding ceremony and organise & submit all your legal paperwork for you as part of their fee.

5. Book an elopement photographer

Your elopement will be one of the biggest moments of your life, so you’ll want to make sure all the wonderful feelings & moments that you experience on the day are captured beautifully. 

Eloped

Australia has an incredible talent pool of amazing elopement photographers, including some who have been named amongst the world’s best by leading international publications. Elopement photographers are visual storytellers who largely photograph candidly and have a wonderful knack of capturing intimate and emotive moments without imposing their own presence. 

Elopement photographers offer packages from 2 hours to full day coverage with the average spend being $1,600 - $3,000. 

 View Elopement Photographers

Another option to consider is the addition of a wedding videographer to capture your special day.  They can create a short highlights reel that you can publish and share online.  You can even have the ceremony live streamed for family and friends to watch as it all happens. 

Video packages range from simply filming your wedding ceremony to the addition of pre & post wedding footage and drone imagery - which is definitely something to consider if you’re having a destination wedding in one of Australia’s landmark locations.

6. Find the perfect elopement dress

Australia is home to an industrious industry of internationally renowned fashion designers including those who create wedding suits and couture gowns. And in addition to the industry’s big names, there’s many local city-based design houses where dream gowns, pant suits, two pieces and more can be tailored by the designer, off the rack. 

Grace Loves Lace knows a thing or two about choosing the perfect elopement dress, particularly if you are intending to travel with your gown. "Comfort is the key as you embark on your elopement day. Opt for a lightweight gown that not only enhances your beauty but also allows you to move with ease. We recommend choosing a dress without boning, corsetry, or zips, making it a breeze to pack away in your suitcase."

Elopements
Grace Loves Lace celebrates individuality with bohemian, timeless & modern designs. Ask about Zsa Zsa - the unique wedding gown designed for adventurous Brides. It's the world's first swim-friendly wedding dress!

Grace advises opting for "breathable fabrics and versatile designs, ensuring both style and comfort throughout the day. When trying on your gown, feel free to lean over to check if you can adjust your shoes or pick something up from the floor. Try jumping, dancing, laughing, and prepare yourself for the unexpected."

Taking inspiration from your venue can also help guide you towards the perfect gown - from the vibrant energy of Sydney to the bohemian charm of Byron Bay. One last piece of advice from GRACE: "Don't forget that your wedding gown should always reflect your style and who you are."

Any of the wedding dress designers listed on Wedlockers will provide you with a custom fitting on your arrival in their city. Make sure you enquire early to get the required appointments prior to your wedding. Australian designed gowns generally start at $1,500 off the rack and custom tailored couture ranges from $5,000.

7. Choose your invitees

Yes, you might have chosen an elopement so that you don’t have to worry about who gets invited quite as much, but you still need two official witnesses. If you haven’t already decided who to bring with you, consider what’s most important to you when choosing who needs to be at the wedding. 

There are no real hard and fast rules for who to invite or how many to invite. Generally, a guest list of under 8 is considered an elopement, under 20 is a micro wedding and 40 or under is a small wedding.

Any of your wedding vendors, with the exception of your celebrant, can act as a witness to your wedding. 

8. Tell those who need to know

You’ll probably want to tell your family and closest friends about your wedding.  Think about when, where and how you will share this information.  Will you tell them before, during or after the big day?  

White Chapel Elopements
Scenic Rim elopement venue White Chapel Kalbar

Whoever you tell, tell them directly!  Hearing the news directly from you will help them feel included in your big moment.  They may be curious as to why you are choosing or chose to elope.  Have an explanation you’re comfortable with at the ready and be prepared that some people may require time to digest the news.  If this happens stay positive and be understanding.  

9. Check on legalities

The legal requirements to get married in Australia generally include: not already being married, not be marrying a person who is immediately related to you, be at least 18 years old, understand what marriage means and freely agree to be married, use the specific words required during your wedding ceremony as directed by your celebrant, submit a notice of intended marriage via your celebrant between 1 to 18 months before your wedding and be married by an authorised marriage celebrant.

You’ll need to provide proof of identification and place of birth, as well as a divorce if there have been previous marriages. Documents your celebrant may ask you for in order to submit your paperwork to legalise your marriage include an original birth certificate or extract and an original passport.

10. Don’t forget the rings 

When it comes to the rings, narrow your options down to the metals and gems you want to use, then consider what style fits best.  Do you want simple bands, brushed metal, single stones or something more embellished? As a rule, don’t worry too much about whether your rings match or not. You can each have your own unique design that fits with your lifestyles in mind. 

Having your wedding rings designed locally is a wonderful experience to enjoy together in the lead up to your wedding. Small Australian jewellers will walk you through the process, discussing who you are and what matters to you, to create designs that speak to your personality and relationship. If you’d like recommendations for small, local jewellers who offer this service in your area send us an email.

11. Think about what comes after

What will you do after the wedding ceremony? What kind of wedding reception do you want? A candlelit table for two catered in a private location, dinner at a restaurant in the city or an outdoor table under the stars at your private country venue?

Elope In Sydney Australia

Hiring an elopement planner to take care of all your wedding logistics is a good idea if you’re not getting married in your home town. They’ll organise your wedding ceremony, book your chosen suppliers and get you the best table at our most popular venues. You can find Australian elopement planners right here.

12. Announce your elopement

Even if you’ve given a lot of people close to you the heads-up, you should still think about how you’re going to make your introduction as a married couple. Your wedding photos and video can be used to help you share the news on social media.

You can also create stationery or other custom-made wedding favours to send to your nearest and dearest so that, even though they weren’t there, they have something to celebrate the big day with. Feel free to make a big fuss about it. It was a big moment in your lives together!
