If you’re thinking of running away to beautiful Margaret River for an elopement I offer Short and Sweet Ceremonies which are perfect for such intimate occasions.
My role as a Marriage Celebrant is my main vocation which means I’m available for small mid-week ceremonies and elopements, as well as big or small weekend weddings and celebrations.
No matter what size or shape your ceremony will take, I give a personalised service, putting the same amount of time, professionalism and care into my ceremonies, and the wonderful couples I’m working for. Check out My Services page for information on my ceremony inclusions. Read more about Elopements here.
If you want to run away with the one you love for a summer elopement there are still dates available for January, and a few precious weekend wedding dates left in February. Just remember you need to give a minimum one month notice of intent to marry.
Kelly and Hayden were married on the last day of winter at their property near Yallingup named Wildcroft, surrounded by an intimate gathering of family and friends.
After first meeting back in high school, it took another decade and the help of Facebook from opposite sides of the country for these two lovers to reconnect. Since then life has taken on an awesome direction of togetherness, sharing adventures, making plans for the future, with their beautiful children being the centre of it all. They live on a gorgeous property which has two old cottages onsite which they have inspirational future plans with.
It was one of these cute cottages that were part of their wet weather plan B. They had originally planned the ceremony to be outside on the property, however with the weather looking a little unstable they decided to quickly make the necessary repairs to the cottage to enable to ceremony to take place inside.

And what an amazing location it turned out to be, perfectly scrubbed up and styled. You can tell by the photos so beautifully captured by Freedom Garvey Photography that it was unique, cosy, and simply gorgeous! I don’t do many ceremonies indoors, so it was such a wonderful novelty being in this wooden cottage, warmed by the old fashioned wood stove in the tiny kitchen.
The ceremony was relaxed, intimate, and full of love. Kelly and Hayden arrived together in their Datsun 1600, and walked in arm in arm through the back door and up the aisle of delighted guests. During the ceremony their beautiful children Spencer and Emily felt completely at home interacting with the events taking place with Mum and Dad.
Thanks Kelly and Hayden for inviting me to share in this special day with you and your gorgeous family. It was an honour and a joy to be your Celebrant!
