Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Nobody likes it when you’re the only one not ‘in on the secret’, so we like to be an open book! Got a question? Let’s see if we can answer it here for you! If not, please email us so we can clear things up


How do I start planning my elopement?

You can start by deciding on a date.. To plan your day, we also need to know if you will be inviting guests and if so, how many. From there we can help you choose a location and elopement package. Then we can personalise your elopement to suit your individual styles and overall vision… everything from times, to vows and photos. Our team of professionals will bring your day together for you!


What does Elope Brisbane do?

Gosh, were do we start? We have basically done all the hard research for you… we have hand-picked amazing wedding vendors from across Brisbane and surrounding regions. We have designed and tested amazing wedding experiences – because every elopement needs to be special. That’s some of what we have done… what do we do? We take all of our experiences and expertise to streamline the wedding planning process for you. No more stressful planning, no more website hopping, no more deciphering quotes, or trying to plan blindly from interstate or overseas. We coordinate all the wedding vendors you need, civil marriage celebrant (including all your Australian legal requirements), photography, hair & makeup, flowers, styling, transportation. Plus where to stay, dine and play (depending on the package).


Can my elopement be customised?

Ahh… duh… YES!!!! While eloping can work out to be more affordable than the traditional wedding, at Elope Brisbane our goal is not to save you money (saving $ is just a bonus) but to create amazing experiences – so customising your elopement to suit you is key!


How do I book with Elope Brisbane?

Once you have decided on your elopement package with our help, we can start to lock in the details of your personalised wedding. This forms part of your booking form. Once all the elements in the booking form have been completed we simply require a deposit to secure your wedding date and elopement package. This deposit forms part of the full package and will be deducted from the final balance. It is NOT an additional booking fee.


When do I need to book my elopement?

ASAP, to ensure your special date and locations are locked in. While we don’t need a huge amount of time to line up all your wedding ducks, the more time we can spend on your details, the more personal your experience will be.

It is also a legal requirement in Australia for your notice of intended marriage application form to be lodged with your celebrant at least 1 month before the wedding day.


How many guests can I have at my elopement?

Our simple elopements start with 10 guests. But we can certainly cater for many more. Please let us know how many guests you would like to invite so we can ensure an amazing day for all!


We have a special location in mind, can we elope there?

Of course! Well, so long as it is attainable… not the moon lol! If we can climb a mountain for an elopement, I am sure we can make your special place work. Shoot us an email and we will see what we can do.


Do you perform same-sex marriages?

Hell yes! Love is love at Elope Brisbane and we would be honoured to help you plan your elopement! All of our wedding specialists are LGBTQ+ friendly – we would not have it any other way!
