100% Intimate Wedding Planning Service

Avo On Rye is an Australian wedding planning service that creates bespoke experiences for the road less travelled on. We only accept elopements, micro-weddings and intimate weddings – nothing else!

In a nutshell, we plan and execute meaningful wedding ceremonies for couples who crave for something authentic. We can be as hands-on or as hands-off as you desire. We contract trusted vendors on your behalf (religious and secular officiants, photographers, cinematographers, florists, makeup artists, hair stylists, cake makers, private chefs, musicians) to give your elopement that extra level of personalisation.

How Does One Elope (Legally)?

Under Australian law, a couple must wait at least 30 days to marry after giving an authorised celebrant a completed Notice of Intended Marriage form.

To be legally married in Australia, a person must:

  • not be married to someone else
  • not be marrying a parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, brother or sister

An authorised celebrant may be: (i) a minister of religion of recognised denominations, (ii) a marriage celebrant, or (iii) state and territory officers.

But here’s the thing, elopements can be symbollic weddings. And for many international travellers wishing to elope in Australia, this may be the best course of action.

What Are Adventurous Elopements?

Adventurous elopements are a combination of adventure + elopement. They are intentially small and private, usually because a big traditional wedding is the last thing a couple wants to remember their special day by.

Adventurous elopements are a great way to enjoy an extended holiday in Australia whilst sharing a meaningful experience together. They can be as lavish and over-the-top or as simple and organic as you desire.

And that’s the beauty of adventurous elopements – you have full control on how you wish to spend your wedding day.
