When thinking of E-lope the only word that comes to mind is WOW as that was all I kept saying on our wedding day, from the venue to flowers to the team itself who went above and beyond to create our dream day from just a few pictures on our Pinterest board. My family and I cannot thank you enough for making our day magical and I would recommend to anyone considering a small Intermate day where the stress is taken from you and your just left to enjoy yourself.

The whole package is perfect
We can not recommend a wedding with the Elope team enough. From start of enquiries, to showing us around, to adding extras, to our big day. Sam and Tania were incredibly helpful and truly amazing in what they do. The whole package is perfect. The decorations were incredible, everything and more we imagined. The attention to detail was just outstanding. The cake, delicious inside and out. The photographer put us at ease straight away and the photos truly stunning.
