Whatever you want to call it, if you’re after a fuss-free, quick and easy way of getting married. This is it.
It's cheaper than getting married at the registry and you can get married anywhere you want! There’s no marriage registry in Newcastle, which is probably a good thing. Who wants to get married in a boring Government building when you can have your pick of stunning Newcastle or Hunter Valley locations?!
For those wanting something a little more special, I have some lovely, generic ceremony wording I can add in very easily. I will send this when you get in contact, so you know what your options are.
You’re welcome to say vows to each other. I have a guide to writing vows which I also send you.
I also have recommended elopement photographers if you’re looking for someone to capture some special moments.
How much does an elopement cost?
$450 weekdays // $500 weekends. Travel outside of Newcastle LGA is charged at $30/hr.
Sounds like your vibe? Let's have a chat to see how it might work for you.
Meet your Elopement Marriage Celebrant!
Hi I’m Meredith.
A full time celebrant and a believer that everyone should have access to an easy wedding ceremony option.

Let's have a chat and get the ball rolling. You'll be so surprised about how easy it is to get married!
What's the easiest, quickest way to get married?
I get a lot of feedback from my couples about this being the EASIEST process ever. I make everything so uncomplicated and straightforward, you’ll be surprised about how easy it is to get married.
Video chat to sign paperwork
We have a video chat to complete the legally required Notice of Intended Marriage.
You can ask as many questions as you like and we make a plan for your wedding day.
The easiest, most relaxed wedding ever!
At least one month after we sign the NOIM, I get to marry you!
In a location of your choice, at a time that suits you.
On the Day
On your wedding day, I say the legal words, you say some legal words, we sign some documents, and BOOM you're married!
You’ll need two witnesses. These can be people you know or people passing by.

Wow! From the moment we first chatted with Meredith, we knew we’d made the right decision. She made everything easy and we felt so relaxed with her. Our elopement was perfect. Even though it wasn’t a big wedding, she made us feel special and made the moment very memorable for us.
