The concept of a Pop-Up Wedding is a fairly recent phenomenon, but it is a concept which has become popular with couples looking for an affordable wedding package with minimal organising to do.

The team at Elope Brisbane create a couple of Pop Up Wedding days each year, at different locations around Brisbane. Couples are able to save expense by sharing the set up costs with other couples by using the same venue on the same day.

Fiction Bar and Restaurant at Raby Bay Marina, Cleveland, was the setting for one such Pop Up Wedding package.

Niamh and Daniel chose the champagne breakfast time slot. Niamh was awake early, having her hair styled and make up applied by Suzie from An Eye for Style Wedding Hair and Makeup at Cleveland. Steve from Kandid Kombi picked up Niamh from the salon and transported her to Fiction Bar, where Mel from Miss Weddings had an arbour and chairs set up for the ceremony. A bouquet of flowers was provided for Niamh, with a bouttoniere for fiance Daniel.

Celebrant Cheryl Landsberry delivered a personalised and relaxed ceremony for the couple, with photographer Romana Saeheng capturing pics of the couple, and then taking them on a photo shoot to the Lighthouse Cleveland for some couple and family photos.

The package included a champagned breakfast reception back at Ficton Bar and Restaurant at Raby Bay Marina for thirty guests, with danishes, eggs benedict, fruit, juice, sparkling wine, and tea and coffee.

The wedding cake, which was also included in the package, was from our local cake artist, Simone from Cakes by Simone. 

Guests were home in time for a nice little afternoon nanna nap, and the team from Elope Brisbane reset and prepared for the lunchtime pop up ceremony.

The next Pop Up wedding date with the team at Elope Brisbane is 23/6/23 at Point Lookout, North Stradbroke Island. This is a ceremony only package, with clients able to source their own meal locations on the island. Four elopement times are available, with one booked, and one in negotiation. The couple, with up to ten guests, are provided with ceremony styling, a celebrant to legally officiate at your ceremony, a photographer to capture the ceremony with family and couple photos to follow, and a dozen cupcakes.
