The Custom Elopement Experience

— for the couples who want a unique, once-in-a-lifetime adventure

Elopement adventures, designed for you

This is no cookie-cutter wedding package. Everything about our Custom Elopement Experience is personalized to you and what you envision your dream day to look like!

We’ll work together with you to design a one-of-a-kind, unforgettable adventure that will forever be your best day yet!

 

Here's how it works:

1. Fill out Contact Form below

This is where we collect all of the details of your dream day. The more information you provide, the better!

2. Schedule a call

We’ll arrange a call to chat through your vision and get a full understanding of what you’re looking for.

3. Sign contract & pay retainer

You can e-sign the contract and pay the non-refundable retainer directly online. Afterwards, we’ll send a confirmation email and start planning!

4. Pick your perfect adventure

We will send you 3 Custom Elopement options with various price points that fit exactly what you’re looking for. Select your favourite, choose your elopement date, and we’ll take care of the rest!

“We got married with the help of Ottawa Elopements and we are so impressed with the services they provided. Everything was beyond our expectations; the ceremony, the vendors, the pictures (OMG, the pictures… just wow). We would not change a single thing. If you wish to elope, look no further.”

— Annabelle and Aslan

We recommend booking at least one month in advance. While we can make elopements happen on shorter notice as well, a limited notice will restrict the adventures we can design for you. Also, keep in mind that you need a marriage licence to get married, which requires a meeting at City Hall. 

Anytime really! Different seasons will allow for different types of elopements and adventures, so it really depends on what you’re looking for. During the summer we can go for a hike, fly a hot air balloon, or take to the river and marry you on a yacht. During the winter, it may be harder to do a hike, but we can go snow shoeing, skiing, or take a dog sled into the woods!

To book a Custom Elopement, fill out the form at the bottom of this page. We will get in touch to chat through your vision and send you a contract. The design process of your Custom Elopement starts once we received a signed contract and a $1000 retainer. This is the first payment towards your final invoice. We will meet and talk through your vision including when you want to get married, what you want your elopement to look like and who you’d like to be there. We design your perfect elopement with you.

It all depends! Because we design your Custom Elopement together with you, pricing will be custom to your experience as well. Your $1000 retainer is your first payment towards your final invoice, but the total of your final invoice depends on the elopement experience we design together. As a rule of thumb, you can expect Custom Elopements to start at $5000 plus HST.

Our Custom Elopements are designed to be enjoyed with just you and your partner, or with a maximum of 25 guests. Keep in mind that including more guests in your plans will have an effect on the pricing of your Custom Elopement.

We have a great network of local vendor that we work with to create the perfect elopement for you. That being said, if you have a vendor you prefer working with, we can absolutely accommodate. Just let us know about this during the design process, and we will work to include your favourite vendor in the plans!

We’re nature-lovers at heart, so our team is always ready to embrace whatever elements that Mother Nature throws at us! However, we understand sometimes the weather is not entirely in line with your vision. We always make sure to include a rain plan in our planning process. We will bring clear umbrellas with us in case of light rain. And worst case, we can reschedule plans to another date. This is the benefit of keeping your wedding small and intimate!

Yes! We are here to organize your elopement from start to finish, and this includes taking care of any permits required for the location we’re choosing. The only thing you will have to take care of yourselves is your marriage licence. (see below)

Yes! Depending on your needs, we can assist in the booking of transport and accommodation.

Within 1 week of your Elopement we provide you with a highlight gallery. Then, within 8 weeks of your wedding we send you your final gallery.

Up to 1 month before your elopement, you can reschedule to another available date within the same calendar year without any additional costs (pending availability). To cancel entirely, we will refund you any payments made, less your $1000 non-refundable retainer and any expenses incurred to third parties.

Let's get started!
