Hi, just wanted to know if anyone had eloped
Before. Me and my partner of 10 years are doing
This next week. We have been travelling to doctors
Appointments for his work injury for the last 3 years
And we have to make the last trip to hopefully have
Everything settled so we are getting married with a
Private celebrant on our hotel balcony at sunset. We
Are both shy and hate the idea of having people
Looking at us and my bf and I have gone through
So much over the last 3 years with his 6 operations
On his back and legs I've been his full time carer since
And we both just want to make it legal so has anyone
Else done this????

We eloped so we didn't have to feel bad that not all the family could come. My Husband is Canadian and I'm Australian and we live in Australia. It was just too hard to organize everyone from Canada to come down here.
We told them 2 days before we got married so it was too late for them to come down here.
We also had a week away with my 2 boys from my 1st marriage and I was pregnant with our daughter.. A week long family holiday and wedding cost us $6000 for the 4 of us. Was so much more relaxing.
Enjoy it and as long as you have done what you want then don't listen to anyone else.

Thanks Michelle,
Yes witnesses all sorted when we arrive most
Likely hotel staff, our celebrant is a beautiful
Lady so getting very excited and thinking its
Rather romantic. Not worried about our parents
At all as we are all very close and they understand
What we have both gone threw over the last 3
Years. Looking forward to making it legal finally
After over 10 years living in sin lol

I eloped for my 2nd marriage and it was the best thing for us. We had it exactly how we wanted. You still need to have 2 witnesses though and that doesn't include the celebrant.
