Many of my couples do things their own way, and have amazing family + friends who chip in to help create wonderful elopements + weddings. But if you're coming from interstate or overseas, or you just need to be
pointed in the right direction, I have put together a list of fabulous people who I love working alongside,
to help make the planning process a little less daunting.
— CELEBRANTS —
Your celebrant is one of the most important people at your nuptials - without them, you cannot get legally hitched.
I love working with the celebrants below; they write and deliver amazing and personal ceremonies, filled with belly laughs and tears. Each brings a different vibe and approach, so it's important to find the right one for you.

— FLORALS —
When it comes to florals, there are a few things to consider:
• There is currently a trend towards grasses in bouquets and arbours. Be sure to ask about sustainable grass choices. Pampas grass is a noxious weed, and when used, seeds spread everywhere, adding to the issue.
• Source flowers and foliage that is in season and locally grown - Lisa owns a sustainable flower farm at Woodbridge,
and Abigail sources what she uses from local farms, gardens and the roadside.
• Lisa Kingston has a market stall at Salamanca on Saturday mornings. If you are after something simple,
a single bouquet or you're making something yourself, pop down early and choose your own.
