Shhhh... elopements are my speciality!
No cookie cutters here! Every couple I marry is different, and so is every ceremony!
We work together to co-create a ceremony that 100% reflects you as a couple.
I make the process easy and enjoyable, with an organised timeline so you won’t feel rushed.
Whatever your reasons for eloping, we’ll make it a beautiful, memorable occasion.
services of a fully qualified and enthusiastic celebrant, including all Australian marriage legals

me totally having your back through the whole process
To plan this, we’ll:
use my Elopement Ceremony Planner ebook for ideas and inspo
meet up at least one month before the ceremony to complete your Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM) paperwork and plan out your ceremony (the coffee's on me)
email back and forth to personalise your ceremony and get your vows sorted
On the wedding day:
you’ll meet me, your two legally-required witnesses, plus a maximum of 10 guests
if you’ve chosen to add a 1-hour wedding photography package, your photographer will be there too
we’ll have a 10-12-minute ceremony and sign the legal documentation
I’ll give you your Marriage Certificate
BOOM! You’re lawfully wedded spouses!
I’ll submit your documents to Births, Deaths and Marriages after the ceremony
This could be for you if:
you’re running away to get hitched, or simply running away from outdated traditions!
you’re keen to start your marriage with a simple intimate ceremony shared by only a few special folk - 10 guests maximum
you want to get married with minimum fuss, but still have an awesome time
*with option to add 1-hour wedding photography package with the brilliant and lovely Kat Wray from Red Eclectic
Want to get hitched outside of Perth?
I focus on Perth weddings to minimise my carbon footprint, and there are awesome local celebrants in pretty much every location. However, I do love exploring our beautiful country so if you think I'm the celebrant for you, let's chat and I'll see if I can make it work in with a getaway. If your wedding or other ceremony is outside of Perth metro, or more than one hour's drive from East Victoria Park, additional costs to cover travel and accommodation will apply.
My couples say...
"From the moment Paul and I first met Sally in person to plan our elopement, we knew we'd made the right decision in choosing her as our celebrant.
She was so lovely, warm and authentic, while still being very efficient and organised. We wanted a super chilled out, 'no fuss' day that was still full of love and fun,
and it was clear that Sally took this wish very seriously.
In the end, she went above & beyond in delivering just that -
with a ceremony so moving that I believe we'll treasure the memory forever.
If only we could give you 6 stars out of 5 Sally, we would!
Thanks again for everything."
