Highly recommended Blue Mountains Picnics if your looking for a fantastic stress free small wedding / elopement. Our Elopement this last weekend 22.10.22 went off perfectly, beautifully, without fault and totally stress free. From the first point of contact with Kyle the communication, advise and recommendations was fantastic nothing was too hard or any trouble. A Huge Thanks to Kyle and his team, Sue our celebrant and Melinda our photographer they brought our dream wedding to reality. The ceremony site, setup and picnic looked beautiful and was amazing. Myself, my husband and familes had a fantastic day and weekend celebrating our elopement with Blue Mountains Picnics.

It is easy to fall out of love with the process of organising a wedding leaving you feeling stressed and overwhelmed. We arrange every component for you with our elopements being the absolute simplest and least time intensive way to organise your wedding. We’re also very experienced so you don’t need to worry about things potentially going wrong in the lead up or on the day allowing you to truly enjoy the entire process.

It is all too common for people to get through their wedding and end up regretting spending $10,000’s of dollars on a day that may not have lived up to their expectations. It is also easy to pick out things that went wrong or could have been done better. By deciding to elope with us you’ll avoid any potential regrets and have a truly meaningful day that is all about you and your partner.


We do regular giveaways which you can get 10 entries into by simply organising a Free Wedding Planning Consultation valued at $150. Regardless if you decide to get married with us or not, we’d love to get to know you and give you some great advice to help you plan your dream wedding that is stress-free and doesn’t break the bank.

To secure your booking, all we need is a $250 + GST non refundable deposit. We also offer 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 a couple of weeks out from the day. However we do require at least $550 including GST to be paid prior to meeting with the celebrant to complete the paperwork. 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.


We typically only operate on weekends as we run back to back bookings plus our proposals and normal picnics. This allows us to spread the workload out including the time needed to prepare, make food, travel, setup and pack up. We occasionally run elopements during the week but do charge an additional $500 + GST to cover the additional time and effort involved as it is a full day of work for us with much more logistics and people involved in an elopement. We can be more flexible with start time and duration during the week. Please get in touch if you would like a week day and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

We love dogs too!

We're one of the rare wedding venues that are dog friendly


We have exclusive use of the iconic Leuralla Amphitheatre for weddings and have a stunning location on the same property to hold elopements. This spot looks directly into Jamison Valley where you can see the back for the iconic 3 Sisters. It is also on private land and is one of the rare places you can have an elopement in the Blue Mountains without an audience. Please also keep in mind that while some other companies advertise elopements at other Blue Mountains lookouts, there is actually very limited places permitted for weddings and you need to ensure you have the appropriate permissions to avoid any issues on your special day.


IMPORTANT NOTE: As this location is private land, you are only able to access this location on the day of your elopement. However we will occasionally hold open days when you can visit the location and also have a detailed video explaining the location as if you were there.

Hello there! We’re Kyle and Emily, a local couple who are privileged to call the Blue Mountains home. Our shared love for the outdoors, food and wine inspired us to launch Blue Mountains Picnics in August 2020. Our aim was to share our little corner of paradise by creating memorable experiences far away from how people typically experience the Mountains at the crowded tourist spots.

In April 2021, responding to a special request, we ventured into the realm of elopements, helping our first couple, Sheryl & Nathan, celebrate their love in a small, intimate ceremony. We got a lot of fulfillment out of this experience which marked a pivotal turning point for us. Inspired, we expanded our vision and began offering offering all-inclusive elopement packages, which quickly became incredibly popular.

Our successful journey, led us to secure exclusive use of the renowned Leuralla Amphitheatre for weddings. This milestone enabled us to branch out into full scale weddings, culminating in the birth of Blue Mountains Weddings, which we now proudly operate alongside Blue Mountains Picnics

By choosing us for your wedding, you’re not only supporting a local business that pours heart and soul into every detail of your special day, but you’re also bolstering our local team and suppliers who we love to support. We would be truly honoured to be entrusted with your special day and help bring your dream wedding to life.

- Kyle & Emily


Booking your elopement is simple directly via our website with only a $275 non refundable deposit including GST required to secure your date and get the ball rolling. Our elopements are the simplest way to organise a wedding with minimal time needed on your end. We help you through the entire process which starts with selecting from one of our local celebrants. They then get in touch with you and organise the ceremony and legal side with you directly.

You must meet with your celebrant 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 vows 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 and rings. We hold our elopements on the same property as the iconic Leuralla Amphitheatre and have a fully private location with stunning views of the Jamison Valley and back of the 3 sisters.

As soon as you’ve booked in we can provide a video explaining the location in detail however as it is private property you’re unable to view the location prior to your special day. Although we do run an open day once every 6 months or so. The ceremony also has standing room only however if this is difficult for anyone such as elderly guests you’re welcome to bring your own chair or similar for them. There is a small seat at the location also.

We set everything up and leave prior to the ceremony starting with only our celebrant and professional photographer staying during the elopement. 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 with your guests. You’re more than welcome to bring anyone you would like but we do have a 15 guest capacity. PLEASE NOTE: You’re also unable to utilise the amphitheatre for an elopement booking as it incurs significantly higher venue hire fees and is only available as part of the DIY, micro wedding and deluxe wedding package.

We provide our normal picnic setup which has been designed around couples however we don’t setup more equipment, tables, chairs or similar to accommodate seating for all guests post ceremony. (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 further catering on request as part of our optional food upgrades

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 bookings 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 an additional fee of $500 + GST to accommodate the extra time needed for a one off booking however we can be more flexible in start time and duration during the week.

We can also give you great suggestions for restaurants, accommodation, bush walks and more which we’ve actually experienced for ourselves. Most people go for dinner after the ceremony either up here or back in their own local area. We provide your photos within 72 hours of the ceremony via a Google Drive link but normally sooner than this. The final step is us posting your marriage certificate and getting some feedback.



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 non refundable $250 + 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.


Our delicious food and beverages will have your mouth watering! We have partnered with our friends from The Bunker to put together top quality wrap boxes made daily by a chef. We utilise as many local ingredients as possible plus cater for allergies, vegans, celiacs and all other dietary requirements. Each elopement includes 2x boxes of wraps which are 30 pieces (half wraps) in total

You can order 1 individual flavor or choose a mixed box with a maximum of 3 different flavors.

    • Portuguese chicken, slaw, mayo
    • Veggie patty, beetroot relish, spinach (vegan and vegetarian)
    • Pastrami, caramelized onion, rocket, feta
    • Tea smoked salmon, spinach, feta

We also include 2 complimentary beverages including beer, wine and non alcoholic options in an ice bucket. We have insulated picnic baskets to keep your food cool until you’re ready to consume it. We also provide a cutlery, napkins and bins along with disposing of all your rubbish. We can also accommodate additional food and drinks upon request. The included amount provides light grazing for up to 15 people.

Picnic equipment


Let’s face it, people rarely go on picnics as while everyone loves them the hassle of having to buy the food, transport everything, setting up and then having to clean and sort everything out afterwards takes the enjoyment out of it.

  • 2 rugs to replace a traditional picnic blanket
  • Lots of cushions so you’re super comfy
  • Decor including flowers, lantern and more.
  • Picnic basket, blankets, games, sunscreen, insect repellant and a first aid kit
  • Bluetooth speaker so you can play your favourite music
  • Table to place drinks
  • Ice bucket and glassware
