Melbourne-based Marriage Celebrants, Matt Finch and Mel Jacob, have launched the new and exciting start-up, Elope Around Melbourne. This game-changing company offers elopement and tiny wedding services – giving couples an array of exciting experiences and crafted packages – couples can get married with a whole lot of adventure and little fuss.
With the help of their carefully selected corporate partners, they take weddings to the sky, to the water, underwater, or on top of city buildings. Some of their most popular packages are: Elope in a Chopper, Elope in a Private Jet, Elope on a Boat, Elope at the Aquarium and Elope in an Airstream.
“We founded Elope Around Melbourne because we wanted to give marrying couples more choice, and over the last couple of years there has been a real trend towards elopements and tiny weddings,” said Finch.
The pair has over twenty years of combined experience as marriage celebrants, having completed over three thousand ceremonies between them.
‘We found it heartbreaking that couples were going into debt or getting carried away with have-tos while planning a wedding, and losing their connection with each other in the process,” said Jacob. “A wedding – whether it costs tens of thousands of dollars or hundreds of dollars – has the same outcome: the couple is married. We find our couples are so much more relaxed, excited and carefree on their wedding day when they don’t have to worry about anyone but themselves.”
In a recent study published in Marie Claire, the average Australian wedding costs $53,158. Elope Around Melbourne’s packages start from only $329.
