Hey Amy, can you tell us a bit about what you do?
I plan bespoke elopements and small weddings with kick ass rural views.
What is the main advantage for couples who work with you?
A HUGE cost saving and a relaxing day.
Can you share some of the things that go on behind the scenes?
I liaise with all vendors involved in the day for everything from booking to locking in arrival times and the handling of payments. I manage everything on the day of the ceremony and most of the time am also a stand-in babysitter and child distracter.
Do you think there are any preconceptions about the wedding industry?
I think most couples (especially grooms) believe it is going to be a much more stressful day than it is.
What are some of the main questions couples ask you? And what are the answers?
What do you do? Answer: Take away all wedding related stress. Where can we elope? Answer: Anywhere you please, but on a farm is always more fun!
Can you describe what sets your business apart?
My business is completely unique in that I am a planner but I also have a bunch of venues that I can include in my packages. I also have a really fun team of people that I work with that have tailored their products for me to include elopements in their offerings. What I offer is stress free, both financially and mentally and ropes the focus back to the couple and their love for each other.
What’s your next predicted wedding trend?
It has already started, somewhat, but I want to see WAAYYYY more dogs at weddings! I’m all about the stress free vibe and there is nothing better than a happy dog greeting people on arrival.
What would you love to see more couples do at weddings?
Really incorporate their surrounds and let the location do the talking. Get rid of the bunting, the huge flower instalments and all the hype and really take in what the location has to offer.
And finally, what the best piece of advice you can share with anyone planning their wedding?
Just do it! Call a planner and jump in head first because it can be one of the most exciting experiences you can have.
