Elope

Do you just want to get it done, without the stress of event management, but still want to do something a bit special? I’ve teamed up with some amazing boutique businesses on the Mornington Peninsula who will provide you with an experience that is too good to be true.

Imagine a winery picnic or a very romantic spot nestled amongst the sand dunes as you gaze out to sea.... both of you in your own private space, far from the maddening crowds as you seal the deal.

You still get to pop your own stamp on the day by choosing your music, writing your Vows (if you want to be creative this is where your light will shine!) plus get the added advantage of using local businesses that specialise in all things that bring pleasure to you their guests on your special day.

There are a few legal words that must be said to make the process legal. We can even supply the two legal witnesses, or... you bring along your two fav confidants.

Voila, your paperwork is signed and that now makes you legally hitched.

You then you get to relax and immerse yourselves for two nights, in your own exclusive accommodation, listen to the waves crashing on the shore as you are lulled off to sleep. Gorgeous florals can be arranged from Petal to the Metal to decorate your table, your arms, or just to make you feel special.

Newly, easily, privately and cheekily married.
