• Let's elope! Skip all the stress and organising, and just get married

A simple personalised ceremony (aka an elopement) is the perfect option for couples who still want to have their special day, but skip all the months of stress and organising.

The ceremony is:

  • Your choice of venue - it could be a beach, in the forest, or your backyard at home
  • You can choose the day and the time
  • You can have as many guests as you want, though typically, it'll be a small, intimate group
  • Short and sweet - including signing of the paperwork, is about 15 minutes long
  • A simplified script, and we have space for you to say your own vows to each other (I can provide some sample vows)
  • You can employ professional photographers/videographers
  • You can play music and setup decorations

My fee for an elopement is $250 + travel reimbursement.

I'd love to be part of your special day.

Happy couples who eloped:

    Nate was simply incredible with our wedding - not only did he get our names right he was very well prepared and worked with us to ensure everything was perfect. Thanks so much Nate! We couldn't have picked a better Celebrant!

    Nate is both professional and compassionate. From the moment we booked, right through to the filing of our paper work, Nate provided exceptional, clear communication outlining the process and what and when we needed to contribute, giving us complete confidence. The respect and care he has for his role is evident in how smoothly our impromptu wedding ran. Thank you Nate, we couldn’t have asked for more!

    We hired Nate as our celebrant for our causal bush walk elopement and he was just wonderful! We felt Nate suited us perfectly and made us feel at home during the ceremony, with a great sense of humour and professionalism we’re so happy we chose Nate for our special day.

    If I could, I would give 10+ stars! I honestly had no idea what to expect, so nerves and anxiety was at an all time high when I arrived at the venue. Nate made me laugh and kept me sane the few mins before I walked down the aisle. The ceremony was everything I wished for, efficient, simple and filled with joy. My husband and I laughed the entire time as Nate directed us on what to say, when to say, where to look lol even how to pose for photos! I highly recommend him if you aren't too keen on the elaborate church ceremony, nor the transactional registry wedding, Nate gives the best of both worlds and it was a blessing to have him at our wedding xx
