All You Need is Love

Remember, your Elopement will be different from your friend's 200+ guest pre-covid wedding.

Couples often wonder if they've forgotten to plan something since it feels so simple - it's because it is!

Here's a few things you'll have to organise:

Check-in at Helicopter Depot


We will leave about 30mins after the Hair & Makeup is finished, to meet the Celebrant at the Helicopter Depot. Don't worry, the helicopter guys aren't too strict with being on time - we've got the whole chopper to ourselves. Go to the bathroom if you have to. There's no cafes or public bathrooms on the top of the mountain!
