Riverside Elopes

An elopement is an intentionally small, intimate, meaningful and authentic wedding experience that is a true reflection of your relationship, where the focus of the day is really about you two.

The Why

The number one reason to elope is to experience a totally intimate wedding celebration – a day focused on just the two of you.

When you elope, you throw out the whole rulebook and start from scratch. Eloping means your wedding can represent who you actually are as a couple—you can bring your dog, take a mini-honey moon while you are here, stop and soak in the views from your outdoor bath or end the day by turning on your favourite record and dancing under the stars.

"We loved the setting, we loved the ceremony, and we loved the entire experience - it was truly memorable and we couldn't have hoped for anything better or different!! Even though there were no family and friends there you connected with us and that made us feel supported and cared for, and we so enjoyed your presence. The extra parts to the day were so great too - that platter and cake were something else wow!!!"

- Toni & Trevor

"We cannot thank you both enough for creating such a magical day for us, a wedding that was more than perfect.

All the planning was taken care of by the beautiful hosts, while my husband and I just had to show up and enjoy ourselves.

With nature throwing us a wet and wild morning, Maggie was still able to create the most beautiful, unique ceremony in our little cabin in front of the fireplace

Spending 3 nights at the Bothy, just the two of us (and our fur baby) surrounded by nature was the best way to start marriage life! ”

"Riverside escapes was the perfect location for us to tie the knot. It was a beautiful spot to wind down in, playing board games and stargazing from the tub the night before and of course to then get married amongst the olives in such a serene setting. It was absolute magic from the minute we arrived. Our family was also blown away by how gorgeous the space and our ceremony was and the photos captured around your beautiful property are absolute treasures.

We are so glad we switched up our original plans and are truly so grateful that we got to keep you,  Maggie as part of our day. You were a winner right from day 1 and we can’t thank you enough for all your advice, support and the perfect ceremony that you put together for us. 

We are looking forward to coming back soon for another escape! ”

"We decided to elope while we were on holiday in Northland. We wanted a simple ceremony that was just about the two of us.

After finding Riverside Escapes' website and making contact with Maggie, things effortlessly fell into place.

We had a moving and intimate ceremony in a tranquil location. It was perfect.

Many thanks to Maggie and Brooke ”
