Vows with a Wow

Elopements, Micro-weddings, and Vows with a Wow- (something a little bit different!)

 

 

Perhaps the big wedding shindig isn’t really your thing. Maybe you’ve been thinking about getting away and eloping- just the 2 of you. Or maybe you just want a handful of close family/friends and want something simple, relatively quick, but personalised at the same time.

The Ruby ceremony micro-wedding option will be yourselves, and up to 20 guests (dependent on currency of NSW Health Guidelines with regards Covid19);

The Ruby elopement option will be yourselves and 2 witnesses only (no guests) and I will be happy to provide you with the witnesses if required.

The ceremony will be 10-15 minutes in duration.

 

Inclusions:

  • All legal aspects covered before, during and after the ceremony.
  • An intimate, personalised short ceremony
  • Recording the ceremony or facilitating a live-stream if possible
  • Music for the ceremony
  • A signing table

 

Not Included:

 

  • No rehearsal
  • You write your own vows (I can provide guidance & tips if needed!)
  • An official marriage certificate from Births, Deaths and Marriages. (I can order one on your behalf for $60 delivered to your home address if required- the one you keep on the day is commemorative and will not be sufficient if you wish to change your name).
  • Extra fee may be payable if I am travelling 100kms round trip to your rehearsal and wedding ceremony

 

OK, and now for something completely different….

 

 

 

Eloping and looking for a different wedding? You’ve come to the right place! With all these activities on offer in Byron Bay, your marriage can be one that combines your love of adrenaline with your love for your partner- and no one can accuse you of having a run- of- the mill wedding ceremony!

Kayaking Marriage

 

Goseakayak in Byron Bay along with me are excited to offer you a kayaking marriage! Byron Bay is home to a residential group of an estimated 100 bottlenose dolphins. Goseakayak says they are fortunate enough to see dolphins on most of their tours out at sea, and if you’re really lucky and it’s the right time of year, maybe you can see whales as well!

Hot Air Ballooning Marriage

 

Fly high above the Northern Rivers at sunrise and say your vows in the perfect stillness and romance of a hot air balloon adventure. Have the whole basket for yourselves, your witnesses, your celebrant, and the pilot- and add a few more guests if you like! The panorama of the Byron Bay hinterland spreads out before you as you see the world in a whole new way, and pledge yourselves to each other whilst enjoying this incredible experience.

Scuba Diving Marriage

 

A scuba boat (chartered just for you) will take you to Julian Rocks in Byron Bay, where you can get married before plunging into the water to enjoy a scuba dive! The legal monitum and your vows must be said on board- but you can have a ceremony underwater inclusive of a ring exchange if you wish! As your celebrant, I am also a certified diver and have a permit to conduct ceremonies on the water from the NSW Marine Parks.

 

This activity requires some conditions to be met by those diving- please enquire for more details and a quote!

Sky Diving Marriage

 

Fly up to 15000 feet with your soul mate. After the experience and adrenaline rush of a tandem jump (don’t worry, both of you will be harnessed to an experienced instructor!), say your vows to each other when you land. Dependent on weather/wind conditions, you could land either on the beach or back at the base, at the drop zone. Once your parachute has opened you will float gently down to the drop zone feeling amazing and ready to say “I DO!”

Horse Riding Marriage

 

The wonderful folk and their gorgeous horses at Zephyr horses, in conjunction with your Byron Bay celebrant can give you the choice of a forest marriage or a beach marriage whilst riding, or riding to a special place where you can alight to say your vows. No previous riding experience is necessary- you will be well taken care of and paired with a suitable horse.
