THE BOHO PICNIC ELOPEMENT
If you’re a couple who wants a simple yet beautiful elopement, the boho picnic is your ticket. In a boho-styled teepee, this 3-hour elopement picnic is offered in multiple venues across the Mornington Peninsula. Outfitted with Turkish rugs, ottomans, cushions, wicker baskets, a tea chest and styled to perfection, every detail is taken care of for you, so that your elopement is all about you. As it should be.
Elegant and stylish, The Boho Picnic Elopement is perfect for couples wanting to celebrate their marriage alone – and in serious style – without spending a fortune or any of the usual headaches or stress associated with wedding planning. Or, if you are wanting to celebrate with your besties we can now cater for up to eight guests.
Choose from one of these incredible venues on the Mornington Peninsula for your Boho Picnic Elopement:
01. TANGLEWOOD ESTATE
This private winery is nestled amongst ancient Tangelwood Eucalypts, looking out over Port Phillip Bay. This premium, quintessentially Australian property is typically booked out years in advance for high-end weddings, magazine and branding photoshoots. And we’re thrilled to offer it as one of our elopement venues. Your tepee is pitched between their charming mud hut studio, built in the round, looking across to the rustic timber chapel and beyond to the bay. If the weather doesn’t behave on your day, we set up your tepee just inside the mudhut studio and throw the doors open to still fully appreciate the setting.
02. THE FITZROY GARDENS
The heritage listed Fitzroy Gardens are a Melbourne insitution. Situated in the heart of Melbourne, in the central business district, this is the perfect location for our city friends or those visiting Melbourne. With great access and beautiful gardens this Boho Picnic Elopement is the perfect way to get hitched. We will erect your tepee on the lush lawns or in the case of inclement weather under the Temple of the Winds Rotunda. The gardens have many beautiful backdrops for your your styled photo shoot including the picturesque Conservatory with all year around flowering blooms. Whilst this Boho Picnic Elopement is bookable all year round, we do suggest the warmer months are more enjoyable.
3. THE OLD CHURCH RED HILL
This gorgeous weatherboard church was constructed from local timber in 1911 and overlooks a pristine valley and national park. Think white walls, wooden floors and a cozy pot bellied stove to keep you toasty on those chilly days. Walk down the aisle, or don’t… in this beautiful rustic church to your partner waiting in front of the stunning picture window overlooking the valley and bay. Your teepee will be pitched in front of the window with the valley as the perfect backdrop rain hail or shine. Enjoy sipping champagne with the views over Westernport Bay.
Located in Red Hill, this is our only winter venue for Boho Picnic Elopements.
04. MORNINGTON PENINSULA BEACH
The Mornington Peninsula boasts some of the best beaches in the world. Dip your toes in the water after saying your vows then retreat in your teepee for a cuddle.
Tepees can only be erected on bay side beaches (not surf beaches) and we’ll take care of all permits and regulations on your behalf. We recommend the beautiful white sand beach at Mcrae with its clear, shallow aquamarine waters and lighthouse. However, if you have a favourite beach in mind chat with us.
We recommend only booking a beach elopement in the weather-dependable months of February and March. As beaches are publicly accessible spaces, and school is in progress, it has the added advantage of being quieter at these times.

LUXE BOHEMIAN STYLING
Your elopement will be styled to Boho perfection, so you can curl up in your teepee with Turkish rugs, ottomans, plush cushions, soft throws, wicker baskets and a wooden tea chest serving as your table for two. Gorgeous native flowers, lanterns, vintage champagne buckets, lanterns and lovely glassware complete the look. This is next-level luxe.
A GOOD GRAZE
Savour a fabulous grazing plate, laden with delicious food for two, with antipasto items, fresh fruits, charcuterie, cheeses, dips, crackers and more, plus sweet treats! Whether you’re vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free, we cater to every dietary restriction and lifestyle. Just ask!
And to wash it all down, enjoy your choice of complimentary French champagne (or an excellent local red or white wine if you prefer). With bottles of sparkling and still water, your elopement picnic will be unforgettable. And you’re also welcome to BYO your favourite tipple in addition if you wish.
Your simple legal marriage is all about the vows. This is where it gets real; what you say to each other is important. So, we’ll provide you with an amazing vow hack. Inside, you’ll find vow hacks and templates that are so easy to use, your vows will practically write themselves. But, if you do get stuck, your Marriage Celebrant will assist you with one-on-one support to help you articulate what you really want to say.
ALL SMALL THINGS
Eloping is all about you. Instead of worrying about the little details that can take up time, we’ll have your choice of bouquet/s and/or buttonhole/s of native florals waiting for you when you arrive. We’ll also give you an option to purchase matching flower crowns if you wish. The reason we don’t include them in the package is that we never assume gender on behalf of our couples. We’re proud to have helped many same-sex couples marry over the years.
We provide thoughtful touches like a Bluetooth speaker to play the soundtrack for your day, along with natural sunscreen and mosquito repellent (just in case!) to ensure everything is perfect.
We’ll even arrange your 2 legal witnesses – our photographer and event stylist will happily oblige – so that we can keep the day all about the two of you. Or, if it’s important to you, feel free to bring your own witnesses. That’s ok too! Just ask. We can cater for up to eight additional guests upon request.
AND WE TAKE CARE OF EVERY LEGAL DETAIL
We’ll take care of the 5 legal documents you need to make your partnership official. We’ll even order and pay for your marriage certificate on your behalf and have it delivered to your door a few weeks after your wedding. Perfect for Australians and foreign couples alike, simply pick your location, time, and date. Then, on your wedding day, check and sign the documents at the appropriate time.
