Elopement at Brisbane Botanic Gardens, Mount Coot-tha
J and L are shy people. They wanted a legal wedding without any fuss. The team at Elope Brisbane made their wedding happen, with photographer Romana Saeheng Photography and Graphic Design doubling as a witness for the couple. No pics this time. Just happy memories.
Elopement at Mount Coot-tha
Taryn and Nic don’t enjoy a lot of fuss or fanfare and were quite anxious when they started to think about planning their wedding. They contacted the team at Elope Brisbane to create an intimate elopement, surrounded by nature, just for the two of them.
Jo from Twidale Hair and Makeup at Albion created some soft curls for Taryn. Taryn chose a sapphire blue dress from Sacha Drake which showed off her slim figure. She carried a simple bouquet of baby’s breath.
Nic combed his hair back into a pony tail and wore a matching blue jacket with a baby’s breath boutonniere.
Celebrant Cheryl Landsberry created a genuine ceremony for the couple, who whispered their personally written vows to each other in the quiet morning air.
Photographer, Romana Saeheng captured some beautiful mementos for the couple to share with family and friends.
After their morning wedding, Nic and Taryn met family for a celebratory lunch and surprised them with their wedding news.
What a wonderful way to be married!
Taryn left these reviews:
“Thank you so much for the lovely photos! From the bottom of our hearts we thank you for your involvement and coordination of our elopement, it was everything we had hoped for and more.”
“Cheryl is a wonderful celebrant who is up for any wedding style and location. She is highly experienced, a delight to talk with, and will organise all the paperwork for you. She is super-adaptable and welcomes any crazy wedding ideas you might have! I highly recommend her!”
We loved working with Taryn and Nic for their very low key Brisbane elopement and wish them every happiness for their married life together.

Elopement at Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mount Coot-tha
When they first met, on a night out with mutual friends, Peter noticed that Laura was quite hilarious, a little wild, and a lot of fun. He was left speechless at her antics and quips. After a little while chatting, Laura saw that under his tough veneer, Peter was actually one of the sweetest guys she had ever met. They have been inseparable ever since, and love that they can be their true selves when they are together.
Laura and Peter decided on a very low-key and intimate ceremony at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens Mount Coot-tha, inviting just their closest family. After pampering with professional hair and make-up artist, An Eye for Style, Laura was ready to meet Peter under the arbour created by Miss Weddings. Her beautiful flowers were from Little Miss Flower Shoppe. The Botanic Gardens were shady and tranquil and made for a beautiful backdrop for the ceremony. Celebrant Cheryl Landsberry soon had the couple relaxed, laughing, and holding back a sentimental tear during their heart-felt ceremony. Photographer Romana Saeheng captured still and video footage of the ceremony to share with friends and treasure forever.
After some family photos around the Botanic Gardens, the group were whisked by Kandid Kombi back to Black Hide Steakhouse for a delicious dinner.
Peter and Laura loved leaving everything up to Elope Brisbane and enjoyed their entire wedding experience. “We can’t express how much we appreciated being consulted on our ceremony and your opennes to changing anything we requested,” was their feedback to Cheryl Landsberry, celebrant.
The Brisbane Botanic Gardens at Mount Coot-tha have three areas available to hire for weddings. See their website for more details or contact the team at http://www.elopebrisbane.com.au
Elopement – Brisbane City
“Taila had butterflies in her tummy when she first laid eyes on Trevor. Trevor though Taila was just gorgeous, and he instantly wanted to kiss her. As they chatted, Taila noticed how gentlemanly and softly spoken Trevor was. She knew straight away that he was the one for her.”
Taila and Trevor were planning a big, white wedding. Then they started thinking about what was really important to them. And decided, instead, to just get married straight away. They contacted the team from Elope Brisbane, completed the legal Notice, and asked a couple of special friends to be their witnesses.
Celebrant Cheryl Landsberry wrote the ceremony telling the couple’s story.
“You really have done such a beautiful, beautiful job. We are both in tears. Thank you so much.”
Trevor threw on a checked shirt, and Taila donned a pretty sundress. She had a denim jacket made up with her newly married name embossed on the back to keep her warm as the day cooled. They were married by the Brisbane River in an adorable and intimate ceremony. No fuss, no frills, and now they are living their happily ever after dream.
After a quick photo shoot in the afternoon sun, the newlweds headed over the river to Brisbane city for a celebratory dinner and city stay honeymoon.
Brisbane City Elopement
Jo and Tim knew exactly how they wanted to be married – a simple, fuss-free, legal ceremony in Brisbane city, followed by a series of celebrations with each of their family and friends.
They planned their Brisbane city elopement with the team at Elope Brisbane, and were met at Kangaroo Point Cliffs Park by celebrant Cheryl and photographer Romana.
Jo’s beautiful wedding dress was from the Bridal Company at Helensvale.
Even though their ceremony was short and sweet, it was still memorably special, and Jo left this recommendation for celebrant Cheryl,
“My partner and I were married recently! The entire process was made extremely simple by Cheryl. We have not had to stress over any details. We were given a step by step process to truly simplify things and take the stress away!! On our special day, Cheryl was amazing. The ceremony was perfect and I would not change a thing.I would highly recommend Cheryl to any couple looking for a celebrant on their special day.”
Mount Tamborine Elopement
Kylie and Nev were looking for a romantic and relaxed wedding at Mount Tamborine. On their 5 year anniversary, they secretly slipped away to a rainforest lookout at Mt Tamborine for a clandestine ceremony with the crew from Elope Brisbane.
Kombi driver, Steve, transported groom Nev from their rainforest retreat accommodation to the ceremony location, where celebrant Cheryl, photographer Romana and videographer Jalen were setting up. Then the kombi travelled back to pick up the excited bride, Kylie.
Kylie walked towards her groom to an instrumental version of the song “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran, which perfectly described their elopement at Mt Tamborine – just perfect!
After they exchanged their wedding vows, Kylie and Nev placed their vow cards in an engraved wine box which they plan to open on their 5 year wedding anniversary – so romantic!
Kylie wrote this review for celebrant, Cheryl Landsberry:
“Thank you, Cheryl, for making our special day fun and truly memorable.
You helped guide us through the whole process, polishing our vows and making everything so beautiful.
Your professionalism and years of experience shone through and happily accommodated every request even with our last-minute music changes.
We highly recommend Cheryl and can’t thank her enough for all her time and effort she put into our day.”
Elope to North Stradbroke Island
On their tenth anniversary, this couple hired a house at North Stradbroke Island to host their wedding celebrations. In the afternoon, they went down to the beach for a simple elopement.
Standing under the shade of the tree, overlooking the aqua blue ocean at Point Lookout, they exchanged legal wedding vows in the presence of their immediate families.
Their elopement had a relaxed atmosphere. Straddie is the perfect place for a chilled wedding day.
The team at Elope Brisbane added some extra touches to this Straddie wedding, including a personal wedding ring memento, a surfboard inscribed with the couple’s name, and a Kombi!
