The Sweet and Simple Elopement

— for the couples who want to keep things simple

The best alternative to City Hall

Forego the sterile “copy and paste” process of legalizing at City Hall and the stressful juggling act of a big wedding. Let’s just get you married already!

This elopement package is designed to be exactly how it sounds: sweet and simple. All you need is you and your love, and we’ll supply everything else.

Here's how it works:

Select your date and book online

We offer elopements year-round from Monday to Thursday (holidays not included). You book directly online, and we’ll take care of the rest!

Choose from our list of locations

We have carefully curated 3 beautiful, outdoor ceremony locations for you to choose from. These are all public spaces centrally located in Ottawa.

Simple and legal ceremony

One of our officiants will perform a simple ceremony and ensure everything is legalized afterwards. We also supply the witnesses!

One hour of photography

This will cover your intimate elopement ceremony, as well as approximately 30 minutes of photos afterwards, all at the same location.

Choose your floral style

You can select one of our 3 floral styles (all white, colourful, or a “surprise me with whatever’s in season!”). Bouquets and bouttonieres are available.

$2150 + hst

“I tried to plan 2 different weddings and after months of stress and disappointment, my now husband and I decided to simply elope. We had the most amazing experience and would do it all over again… no regrets!”

— Evelyne and Ryan

Our Sweet and Simple package includes a ceremony with a licensed officiant at one of our 3 pre-selected locations within Ottawa, 1 hour of photography coverage, and florals for both partners. Sweet, and simple!

Yes! After selecting your date and time in the form below, we require a payment for a non-refundable retainer of $300. Once we’ve received this, we’ll send you a confirmation email to let you know your elopement is booked!

To keep things sweet and simple, we have pre-selected 3 beautiful outdoor locations for you to choose from. All of these locations are public spaces within the city of Ottawa:

-Pinhey Forest and Sand Dunes
-Strathcona Park
-Britannia Beach

We have carefully selected these locations to cater to a variety of folks from across the city. Because every other location requires different planning and preparation considerations, we only offer Sweet and Simple elopements at these three locations. However, we can create a Custom Elopement solution for you, wherever you like! Read all about our custom packages here.

Absolutely! The Sweet and Simple package includes 1 hour of photography coverage which is usually enough time to cover the ceremony and portraits afterwards. If you’d like to extend your coverage, send us an email after booking your Sweet and Simple Elopement package and we can add this on.

It’s up to you! Each partner can choose between a bouquet and a boutonniere.

Our Sweet and Simple package includes florals for each partner in one of three styles. Not in the mood to make a decision? You can leave the choice completely up to our florist who will use seasonal flowers to create a masterpiece. If you’d like to add-on extra floral arrangements (ie: an arch for a ceremony backdrop), we would be happy to create this as a Custom Elopement package. You can read more about our Custom Elopements here.

We work together with the team from Grounded Ceremonies, who are legally authorized to perform wedding ceremonies in Ontario and Quebec.

The process for booking a Sweet and Simple Elopement is just as simple as it sounds! Just scroll down to our booking form. Then, select a date and time that work for you and your partner. Pay your non-refundable retainer directly from your invoice. Once we receive your retainer, we will send you an email with a form to specify some details for your elopement. This is where you select your location, your florals, and answer some questions about your ceremony and photography coverage.

We recommend booking at least one month in advance. As long as there’s availability in our scheduler (below), you can book your elopement with us. Want to check about a date that’s not available in our calendar? Shoot us an email and we’ll see what we can do.

Up to 14 days before your elopement, you can reschedule to another available date within the same calendar year without any additional costs. To cancel entirely, we will refund you any payments made, except for your $750 non-refundable retainer.

We are able to offer the Sweet and Simple Engagement package at a competitive price because it’s aligned with what most people want for their elopements. For any customizations outside of additional photography coverage, we develop a Custom Elopement package for you. Read all about our custom packages here.

You are welcome to bring your own florals or photographer, but this does not adjust the price. We do ask you to inform us of this at least 14 days prior to your elopement date.

Our elopements are designed to be enjoyed with just you and your partner, strictly without guests. If you are interested in inviting guests to your ceremony, we can develop a Custom Elopement package for you. Read all about our custom packages here.

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 not everyone shares our sentiments. We will always bring clear umbrellas with us in case of light rain. And worst case, we have a couple of backup locations to change to!

No! The great thing about a Sweet and Simple Elopement is that we keep it sweet and simple. The price listed online includes everything you need!
