What is a Full-Day Elopement Experience?

Your private chauffeur will pick you up from your accommodation in the morning. You will drive to your ceremony location (beach, garden or forest — you choose!), where one of Margaret River’s most popular Celebrants, Anita Revel, will get you hitched.

Pssst, if you stay in your car, we can call this a drive-through wedding!

After some happy snaps post-ceremony, meander your way through your pre-planned tour agenda, before arriving at your preferred long-lunch location.

Your private chauffeur will wait for you to enjoy your first meal as newlyweds, before dropping you home to your accommodation again.

What a way to remember your wedding day, always! If this experience concept makes your heart sing, get in touch with your preferred date, location and ideal car… I will pull together the best people and places to create a magical day.

Cars we’ve used in the past

Mr Mustang Hire — This vintage wedding car is a premier example of the legendary 1960’s Ford Mustang muscle car. For the car enthusiasts, it is a 1965 Mustang two door, five seat hardtop coupe, and is powered by the world’s best sounding 289 V8′. For the photography enthusiasts, she has a beautiful Tahoe Turquiose Metallic paintwork with a white interior.

Küste Kombis — Minty is a 1968 Kombi, described by Cam as “our good time gal”. She seats 7 people in comfort, and has a beautiful cream interior that looks real smooth in wedding photos. Recommended top speed is around 90kph, so your day is a 100% immersion into relaxing whimsy.

Down South Luxury Limousines — Choose from Pewter Silver H2 Hummer, or silver ’57 Chevy — both have enough room to bring some friends along! DSLL take great pride in their cars and you can be assured they will be immaculate on the day. Their drivers will not only drive you around but also anything else that can be done to make sure your day is extra special. They are all fun loving people who are quick with a joke and always have a smile on their faces.
