Frequently Asked Questions

​WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ELOPEMENT AND A MICRO WEDDING?

Traditionally, an elopement is a ceremony with just the couple and two witnesses with no additional guests. A micro wedding is a small, intimate celebration with a handful of your nearest and dearest.

​WHY SHOULD WE PLAN AN ELOPEMENT OR MICRO WEDDING?

Planning an intimate wedding gives you the freedom to create your dream wedding on a smaller scale without all the fuss and distractions of a big wedding. They are all about your wedding day being filled with romance and meaningful moments.​

 

HOW MUCH NOTICE DO YOU NEED TO PLAN AN ELOPEMENT OR MICRO WEDDING?

We are happy to work within any timeframe. It's a personal choice for each couple. Provided we have the date available we can help plan your dream wedding anywhere from 1 month to 18 months before your special day.​

 

​DO YOU DO LAST MINUTE WEDDING?

Legally the quickest you can get married in Australia is 30 days as this is how long it takes to process your Notice Of Intent to Marry. However, if you come to us with this already lodged, we can certainly help plan your wedding in a few weeks provided we have the date available.​

DO YOU OFFER WEEKDAY WEDDINGS?

Yes we sure do! Most of our properties charge a premium for weekend weddings so a weekday wedding is certainly an option. It could also reduce your package price! It's important to keep in mind all our properties also have a minimum night stay.

WHERE ARE YOUR LOCATIONS? We offer couples exclusive access to unique and bespoke properties across Regional Victoria. These locations provide our couples exclusive access as they do not offer weddings unless it is through us!​

​CAN WE USE OUR OWN WEDDING SUPPLIERS?

You are welcome to source any additional wedding suppliers that are not included in our packages. In saying that, we do have a list of preferred high quality wedding suppliers we trust and have worked with on many weddings which we can draw on to help you find your dream team of suppliers.

DO WE HAVE TO PAY ADDITIONAL SUPPLIERS SEPARATELY?

Yes. If you choose to use additional wedding suppliers such as a florist, caterer, hairdresser, etc you will need to pay them directly.  But never fear, we will liaise with your chosen suppliers directly on your behalf 2 weeks prior to your wedding so you can relax and enjoy the lead up to your wedding.

 

​DO WE HAVE TO USE ALL THE SERVICES IN YOUR PACKAGE?

We have created our packages so you have access to the absolute best of the best key wedding services every couple needs for a successful and stress free wedding.

 

CAN WE MEET YOU AND YOUR TEAM?

Absolutely! We are passionate about ensuring your wedding is everything you dreamed of so it's very important you meet us all. You will meet Melanie, Alicia and Georgia individually to discuss their areas of expertise either over a coffee or via an online call.

 

​HOW MANY GUESTS CAN WE INVITE?

Each location differs in how many people the accommodation can sleep but you can invite up to a maximum of 20 guests. This will however depend on what Victorian Government guidelines are in place at the time of your wedding.

 

​DO YOU ASSIST WITH LARGER WEDDINGS THAT HAVE MORE THAN 20 GUESTS?

Our focus is to keep our wedding packages as bespoke as intimate as possible with a maximum of 20 guests. However, if your dream wedding is a little different to our packages, we are happy to discuss your dream wedding and what options are available. 

 

WE ARE A SAME SEX COUPLE, CAN WE APPLY?

Is that even a question? YES!! We welcome everyone. We love LOVE!

DO YOU ALLOW CHILDREN AT YOUR VENUES?

We love to have little ones part of wedding celebrations, so mostly yes. But please contact us directly as some properties have specific rules in place.

Do you have another question you would like to ask before booking your elopement or micro wedding package?
