Let’s face it, it’s been a nightmare couple of years to try and get married. Avoid all the stress and elope with us instead!
Forget the big fancy wedding, we create truly meaningful ceremonies for our clients. Get married in nature with those closest to you.
Let us take care of everything so you can truly enjoy the experience. We’ve helped hundreds of couples create special moments and are experts at what we do.
To secure your booking, all we need is a $100 + GST deposit. We offer custom payment plans at no extra cost. Once we receive your deposit we will be in touch to organise the best arrangements with you and just need you to have paid in full prior to the day. If you prefer, you can still pay upfront to save the extra mucking around with a payment plan but it makes no difference from our end so please do whatever is best for you.
When you’re ready you can book your elopement online by clicking the button below. Select your date & time and then secure your booking by either paying in full or putting down a $100 + GST deposit with payment plan options available at no extra cost. PLEASE NOTE: You must meet with our celebrants to lodge paperwork minimum 1 month out from your elopement so we suggest booking at least 2 months out to provide plenty of time
We then keep in regular communication with you in the lead up to your elopement. We help you through the entire process and make it a stress-free experience. We’re also available to answer any queries you may have and assist however needed.
It’s as simple as that! Just figure out your outfits and get yourself to our location and we’ll look after everything else. We would love to help you with your special day.
Once you book your elopement, we provide regular correspondence and help you through the entire process from start to finish. You need to select one of our celebrants and meet with them at least 1 month out from the day to fill out the Notice of Intended Marriage paperwork. Your celebrant will also get to know you both and discuss your vowels and other details of the ceremony. We also suggest visiting the location at the same time as meeting the celebrant.
We handle everything on the day so you just need to get yourself there and organise your outfits. Every elopement gets a floral backdrop for your ceremony thanks to our friends at Thirty3 Events. We set this up away from the picnic setup but at the same location. We cannot provide seating for the ceremony due to the sandstone rock escarpment not being level so any guests will need to stand during the ceremony. It is a small 100 metre walk to our location but there are some knee high ledges to step down and uneven footing. You’re more than welcome to bring anyone you would like but we do have a 20 guest capacity.
Our celebrants also handle the entire legal side with you including providing an official and commemorative marriage certificate. They make this process easy and stress free.
We set everything up and leave prior to the ceremony starting with only our celebrant and professional photographer staying during the ceremony. Once the ceremony is completed and you have had photos with any guests both the celebrant and photographer leave so you can enjoy the picnic side.
We provide our normal picnic setup which has been designed around couples. Due to the nature of the location there isn’t enough room or level ground to setup more equipment, tables, chairs or similar to accommodate seating for all guests. (Remember this is an elopement not a wedding!) The bride and groom will be able to sit down and enjoy the picnic setup if they wish but we find most people stay standing while mingling with their guests. There are plenty of spots to sit and guests can sit on the pillows from the setup. We can supply enough food or drinks to accommodate all guests and work this out on a case by case basis for each elopement. We can also organise catering on request.
The duration of the elopement is 2 hours from the start of the ceremony to the finish of the picnic. As we do back to back picnics at multiple locations we do need to be firm with the start/finish times if this is the case but are happy to be a bit more flexible if we’re able. However we do find 2 hours is the perfect amount of time for our picnics. We’re also happy to accommodate any special requests or specific types of food or alcohol you would like. We can also do elopements on a week day for a small additional fee of $300 + GST to accommodate the extra time needed for a one off picnic however we can be more flexible in start time and duration during the week.
We hold all of our elopements and proposals at our stunning Wentworth Falls Picnic Spot which cannot be booked for regular picnics. We have scoured the entire Blue Mountains and found the best spot for these memorable moments. The location looks out into the stunning Jamison Valley with a view of the famous 3 Sisters however the best part is our location can’t be found on Google with it being rare to see anyone else at the spot.
Our delicious food and beverages will have your mouth watering regardless of your tastes or dietary requirements. Our Gourmet Picnic menu is fully customisable so you can design your own picnic. We cater for allergies, vegans, celiacs and all other dietary requirements. It is quick and easy to select your choices via our website which means it is no big deal if you do have specific requirements!
We focus on offering a lot of diversity with the finest ingredients. Were a registered food business meaning we prepare, store and transport our food in accordance with all food handling guidelines. We have also put a lot of thought into the logistics of serving this food at our picnic locations and ensure the food is as refrigerated and fresh as possible. Each Gourmet Picnic includes the following
In our standard elopement package we provide one platter and 2 beverage choices as per a normal picnic however we can add platters, beverages and glassware as needed. We will advise what we suggest based on your number of guests and work things out with you closer to your picnic.View menu
The Blue Mountains economy has been doing it tough with tourism taking a dramatic downturn after the bushfires in late 2019 and more recently COVID-19. We're a small business run by a young local couple who invest their passion and energy to make our picnics something special. We have a greater purpose than simply making money, Blue Mountains Picnics has been created to enable couples, families and friends to create special memories together in a truly unique way. We also have a team of locals who help us out on the weekends with delivering and setting up the picnics. By organising a picnic with us and simply visiting the Blue Mountains, you will be doing your part to help.
Let’s face it, people rarely go on picnics as while everyone loves them no one loves buying the food, transporting everything, setting up and then having to clean and sort everything out the next day because you’re too exhausted to do it after the picnic!
Included as part of every picnic is the hire of our picnic equipment including transport, setup, pack up and cleaning. Our picnic setting consists of
