C and M wanted their wedding day to be about the two of them. In their everyday life, they spend their hours catering to the needs of their children, their clients, their families, and their students. So their wedding day was just about the two of them.
The brief for their secret elopement was “casual and colourful”. Converse shoes were the order of the day, and frilly frocks were ditched for jeans and shirts. The bouquet was bright and colourful, the kombi was orange, the cake featured a toadstool, and a colourful macaw added to the photoshoot.
The day started with Steve from Kandid kombi picking the couple up from their home and transporting them to New Farm Park. Mel from Miss Weddings had an arbour set up with a signing table and two chairs – no guest chairs needed! Celebrant Cheryl Landsberry led the couple through their legal ceremony, with a little extra added humour and heart. The couple then cut their wedding cake and enjoyed a glass of bubbles before their photo shoot with photographer Romana Saeheng plus some wildlife additions – a tree snake, an owl, and a brightly coloured Macaw. After the photos around the park, the couple were whisked off to lunch – a nearby burger joint which was the location of their first date. Steve then dropped the couple back home – no need to call an Uber.
And no one but them knew the reason for their giant smiles.

When Elyse and Todd were thinking about the vision for their wedding, they knew they didn’t want a traditional wedding. Musician Todd is more at home in denim than a tuxedo, and Elyse couldn’t imagine herself in a white, frilly dress, so they settled on a red and black wedding theme.
Elyse looked absolutely stunning in a red wedding dress, and their daughter wore a matching red flower girl dress. Elyse’s bridesmaid wore black, as did the parents. The group met at New Farm Park with celebrant Cheryl Landsberry and photographer Romana Saeheng from Elope Brisbane.
They exchanged their legal marriage vows before setting sail on a honeymoon cruise.
We were thrilled to receive a 5 star rating from Elyse, “I highly recommend Romana and Cheryl! Romana is amazing with photos and has a fun and bubbly personality, and Cheryl was a lovely celebrant. We loved how she helped create an intimate ceremony for us. Thank you ladies so much!”
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.

“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.
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.”
