FAQ’S

WHERE ARE YOU BASED?

We are based in Gippsland, Victoria. 

WHERE ARE YOUR VENUES?

Our secluded mountain location has proven to be a winner out of all our locations, from 2020 we will only be offering this location as it ticks all the boxes. It’s a secluded 40 acres, with no noise restrictions so you and your guests can party till whatever time you please. 

WE WANT TO GET MARRIED ON THE TOP OF A MOUNTAIN, IS THAT POSSIBLE?

Yes! We can do that if its just the two of you, there are plenty of spots around our mountain location with the views you’re looking for. We might not be able to set-up camp there for the rest of the day, but you can have your ceremony in the wild. Even if it means hiking for 10mins.

WHEN DO YOU OFFER ELOPEMENTS?

We generally operate from October through to April. It it’s a winter elopement / wedding you are after we can do this in the winter months as our mountain location has a beautiful timber hut with open hire. The maximum would be 20 guests.

To keep the quality of our services to you as high as possible we only accommodate for 2 weddings per month over the season (October – April). 

If you are looking to elope with just the 2 of you we can offer you a midweek date. Please get in touch for available dates and quotes. 

Just bare in mind we need a bit of notice to plan and create your amazing day, get the event permits if need be, and also for the celebrant to prepare the documents. Check our  2020/2021 dates on our ONLINE QUOTE page. Dates are booking up very quickly. 

DO WE HAVE TO PAY THE VENDORS INDIVIDUALLY?

Yes, vendors need to be paid directly by you. But never fear we still do all the liaising on your behalf, collect the quotes and invoiced to pass along to you, minimising the amount of people you have to speak with. We provide the bank details and remind you of when the deposit and final balance is due. All you need to do is just transfer the funds into the provided bank account. We will keep you up to date with what is owing. The final payment is due two weeks prior to the event date.

DO WE HAVE TO USE ALL THE SERVICES IN YOUR PACKAGE?

No, we can tailor a package for your needs. We are happy to discuss anything with you. We highly recommend you get all of us, so the whole experience is complete, but that is totally up to you! If you have a friend that does makeup,  hair or even a photographer you are more than welcome to bring them along. You can also check all the options and prices by doing an ONLINE QUOTE

CAN WE MEET YOU AND YOUR TEAM?

Yes! Absolutely! We can meet together before any decision is taken. And if you decide to book with us, you’ll be able to contact and meet the team and tell them what you’d like. Or, if you prefer let  Ash & Chris do all the talking on your behalf, you will be in good hands. If you are too far away, we know technology a bit and we have Skype and FaceTime!

WE HAVE A CERTAIN STYLE WE WOULD LIKE TO HAVE, CAN WE HAVE A SAY?

Yes, you sure can. All the team are here to cater to your needs. You can have your say in the make-up or your hair, you can tell us what flowers/colours you’d like etc… Our team is extremely experienced and professional, so they will be able to discuss the best options for you. Or if you really don’t know, we can create a concept for you.

HOW MANY PEOPLE CAN ATTEND?

Our Mountain location has capacity for 80 guests. It features 10 cabins that sleep up to 29 guests and a camping area adjacent to the lodge that you can fill with glamping tents or your own swags, tents, or caravans (4×4 only). If crowds aren’t your thing, you can keep it between just yourself and your partner. And yes, you can bring your fur baby too if you’d like!

WE ARE A SAME SEX COUPLE, CAN WE APPLY?

Is that even a question? YES!!! We welcome everyone.

WHAT IS YOUR CAMP LIKE? WHAT DO WE NEED TO BRING?

The camp has everything you’d need, and more. The same things you’d bring if you were going camping. We have food, water, insect repellent, first aid kit, beds, blankets, games… You would only need to bring an overnight bag with your clothes, some good shoes, a tent or swag if applicable and anything you can’t live without. If you stay overnight, we’ll bring the coffee, you’ll be fine.

WE DON’T WANT TO GET MARRIED, BUT LOVE THIS IDEA. CAN WE USE YOUR SERVICES?

As of 2020 we are now only specialising in elopements and weddings.

TIPS IN CONTACTING US

Please be thorough and in depth with your enquiry when contacting. We get an influx of enquiries coming through each day. We will be focusing solely on the couple that contact us that are prompt in replying and stay in communication with us. If you are contacting regarding an elopement for two, please contact us directly as the quoting form doesn’t reflect the cost of this.

THE DON’TS WHEN CONTACTING US

Please do not direct message or email us just asking “what’s a price for a wedding?” because.. How long is a piece of string?  The more information you include in your enquiry the better, otherwise it’s a very, very difficult question. Each wedding is unique and custom to you, we do not send detailed quotes via email without having a good chat to you via a phone consult first, to better understand what you want included, your budget and go over the details with you. We believe weddings are far to personal and intimate to be discussed at a distance only via email, instagram or facebook messenger. We always honour the first enquiry that comes through for a specific date, but if we do not hear back from you within 48 hours we move onto the next enquiry and your enquiry will be archived.
