The best elopement ideas in the Margaret River region are here! (As are simple wedding packages.) Read on!

So you have decided to elope in Margaret River? Good for you! As someone who eloped herself, I am possibly the most understanding Celebrant EVER when it comes to supporting you through your decision to elope.

(In fact, I’d love you to run away and get married without the politics, stress or expense!)

Here are some elopement ideas and wedding packages to inspire you to have your elopement / micro wedding in the Margaret River region of Western Australia.


  • You’ll get married by one of the most popular Celebrants in the South West (voted best female Celebrant in Western Australia, and voted #1 South West Celebrant, 4 times!)
  • A ceremony that I wrote specifically for couples who want something meaningful, but short and sweet. (I’ll email you a copy upon receipt of the booking.)
  • The same warm service, but with the add-ons scaled down so you save $$.
  • The use of my gorgeous Swarovski crystal pen.
  • If your ceremony is out of school hours, my daughter will even be your flower girl with flowers picked from our own garden! (Optional, but she loves throwing petals at brides, so she made me put this in.)


Elopement packages cannot be booked for high-demand time-slots, such as 3pm on Saturdays.

Forget the ceremony — I just want a Registry Office style “married in a minute” service

For those couples who just want to do the legals with absolutely zero fuss. We can arrange to meet somewhere that requires no travel for me (hence saving you travel fees), and get legally married, with a bare-bones ceremony. No readings, no guests, no dressing up (well, maybe a little bit!)… Just the basics. No booking fee required, but you do need to book a time and date to suit us both. Phone me on 0417 937 436 to arrange a date and time.

Who has done this? I’ve married couples in my art studio, under the peppy tree outside my art studio, in hotel rooms, and even one couple while sitting at a table at the pub! Most don’t dress up. They just rock up.

The easiest-peasiest budget-friendly elopement package:
“Micro, 2 guests, Cowaramup area”

Get married at the Margaret River Heartland where I’m setting up dozens of romantic, bohemian and naturally-beautiful spots to say “I do.”

For example:

  • Stand next to the dramatic dead tree (pictured, and featured in this video);
  • Under the 80-year-old flame trees;
  • In the natural forest;
  • Under one of the dozens of majestic peppi trees;
  • and the list goes on.

You’re welcome to explore… no doubt you will find a spot that is right for you.

Small Wedding Package, Margaret River region, up to 20 guests

I often get asked the question: “We let it slip that we’re eloping, and now we have 10 guests who want to come… Can we still have an elopement package?”

In fact, I get asked this so often, what the hey, I’ve created a package for these situations… It’s the “Small Wedding, less than 20 guests” option. This includes travel to anywhere within a 30-minute radius of Margaret River township.

Conditions (How you qualify for an elopement package)

  1.  All weddings need 2 witnesses, so you can invite 2 guests, or thereabouts. Or less than 20 for a “small wedding”. Any more than 20 guests and it becomes a “wedding”. (Or a bespoke micro wedding, if you want the ultimate in easy wedding planning.)
  2.  I’ll send you a sample ceremony that you can scribble on and massage wording to suit yourselves. It’s the perfect length for elopements — not so short you’ll wonder what just happened, and not so long that you’ll drift off. You can source your own readings and so on, but you won’t have access to my ceremony planning kit.
  3.  You can apply for a 3pm Saturday wedding, but if I get a booking for a larger (full fee) wedding at that time, I ask that you be flexible and prepared to move your ceremony forward or back by a couple of hours.
  4.  That’s about it!

Simply let me know the date, time and location of your ceremony, and voila, we are underway!

This payment will be processed by PayPal, or you can elect direct debit. I’ll confirm your booking with a “next steps” checklist and the paperwork you will need to fill in, by email.

Yay, all done! I will be in touch immediately to start organising your special day 🙂

Shine on,

Frequently Asked Questions About Eloping

Q:  Can it really be as simple as to do something in like a month or 2?
A:  Yes! You need to lodge your NOIM form with me at least one calendar month prior, but that’s the only limitation with regards to “time”. Lodge it with me on the 15th, and you can marry on or from the 15th of the following month.

Q:  Can our wedding be small – just ourselves and our 2 children?
A:  Yes! You do need two witnesses over the age of 18 and that speak English, but apart from that it can be as small as you like!

Q:  What if we have to cancel? (Refund policy)
A:  In case of cancellation by the couple, fees are not refundable, but are transferable to another date or service by Anita. In case of cancellation by the Celebrant, 100% of fees paid are refundable, or a replacement Celebrant will be sourced on your behalf. In case of events out of both our control (eg Covid-19), 50% of fees paid are refundable or transferable to a new date in the future.

Q:  Can we Facetime our wedding so our relatives can watch it around the world?
A:  Yes! You can Skype it, Glider it, Instagram it, tweet it, Facebook it… Whatever your app, I’m happy for you to record / share your ceremony in any way you like.

Q:  I have more questions! Can I contact you?
A:  Yes! Phone me on 0417 937 436 (I’m GMT+8 time zone), use the contact form, or use the Facebook plug-in below to ask your question 😀 I’m at your service!!
