Simply Married

Creating memories, simply

Simply Married is for couples looking for the perfect   elopement ceremony


It's a classy alternative to the Registry 'Office' style ceremony.  With the minimum of fuss, (and that means no fuss) ... in fact it's easy! This will be your Best. Elopement. Ever!

So how easy is a 'Simply Married' ceremony?


Step 1 - You complete the 'Let's get in touch' form, with your choice of venue - possibilities are endless and I can help you choose, your ceremony date & time (before 5pm), Monday through Friday unless otherwise arranged and leave the rest to me!

Step 2 - When I receive your 'Let's get in touch' form, I'll respond with a confirmation email, letting you know if your date is available and I'll then commence all the fun work of creating your ceremony. You're booked!

Step 3 - You'll receive a link to an online form to get you started on the legal paperwork, this is called a Notice of Intended Marriage (NoIM) and you just need to complete the form one month before your ceremony (not unless you already have one in place and you didn't lodge it more than 18 months before).  If you have a NoIM that is still valid, I could marry you in less than a month!

Step 4 - You get dressed ready for your ceremony, go to your venue and say "I do!"

Best. Elopement. Ever!

Elopement ceremonies

5 days a week Monday to Friday (weekends by prior arrangement)

Total devotion to your ceremony.

Even easier!

  • Currently legislation allows us to lodge your NoIM remotely in South Australia, so there are no requirements for face-to-face  interviews. We can do this via Zoom.

  • If your partner is overseas or interstate, only one of you need attend the interview. We can do the paperwork, initially, with one of you.

  • Do you need assistance with a Visa  application? Then let me know and I can do this too!

Needing recommendations

I can recommend many totally fantastic wedding vendors who can provide you with awesome venues, photographers who will capture every moment as it unfolds, stunning flowers, cakes, stylists and I can even bring with me 2 witnesses for you, if you really want your Elopement 'totally' private.
