Private property elopements are a great option for couples looking for a short and simple or legals only wedding in Brisbane, in the privacy and relaxed surroundings of your own home, or our custom designed elopement deck.
Elopements are much more relaxed than standard weddings and a lot of our couples tend to drop the formalities, and instead arrive together for their short and simple elopements.
Here are some relaxed and intimate legals only marriages and elopement weddings on our shaded and sheltered deck with elopement ceremony decor added.
To see more, you can view blog posts of elopements that have taken place at this elopement deck here.
Following their wedding ceremony, this couple headed to the nearby University of Queensland (UQ) for location photos with their Photographer, Blank Canvas Photography, making the most of the historical sandstone buildings and manicured lawns.
Please Note: In Australia your marriage can take place anytime from 1 month after the date we meet.
This is because the official marriage paperwork known as the NOIM form must be completed and lodged with us (the Celebrant) no less than 1 calendar month before the date of your marriage.
This couple eloped in a small ceremony at a private property and had this to say:
“My fiancée and I eloped in Brisbane. Jamie was fantastic he responded with useful suggestions and recommendations, which were particularly helpful as we were coordinating our Brisbane elopement overseas.
The ceremony, while very simple, was exactly what we were after. The day was perfect. Thanks Jamie.” K+C
At the couples request the ceremony involved simply the bare minimum legal wording, exchanging of vows and wedding rings. Within minutes they were married.
There was no need for a crowd at this wedding as the witnesses and photographer more than made up for one, excitedly bursting in to celebratory cheers and applause the moment they were pronounced as husband and wife.
We love how this couple are beaming with happiness in all these photos.
Private property elopements are such a beautiful and relaxed alterative to registry office weddings. Our eloping couples love marrying in the relaxed environment of their choice, with full flexibility to have your elopement ceremony however you envisage.
Following their relaxed elopement wedding ceremony this couple accompanied their Photographer to nearby UQ for a post wedding photo shoot where these stunning images were captured.
If you love the idea of a private property elopement either at your own home, or an alternative location, we would love to hear from you.
Elope in your own home
There is also the option to elope in your own home, creating very special memories by having your ceremony in your back yard or on your deck.
This couple eloped in the back yard of their Holland Park home, it was heartfelt, relaxed and perfect!
“Jamie, thank you so much for a wonderful service on Sunday! We couldn’t be happier with how smoothly it went and appreciate you bringing your wife Cara along too to be a witness. You made everything so simple, straight forward and it was a pleasure working with you! Jamie + Sean
