MELBOURNE ELOPEMENT LOCATION IDEAS

Melbourne has some of the best elopement destinations in the country. There are lots of venues and parks, gardens and beaches in the city and also surrounding areas. Here are just a few of our recommended locations to have a small wedding.

CITY ELOPEMENT LOCATIONS

First on the list of best elopement locations in Melbourne is the Old Treasury Building. It's one of the oldest building in Melbourne. Located at the top end of Collins Street in the CBD. This building was designed in the 19th century between 1858 and 1862 in the gold rush era. Full of history and fine detail architectural details can be the perfect location for a relaxed ceremony. This Melbourne venue has two ceremony rooms to pick from. Easy to book online if you are travelling to Melbourne and don't live in town. Ceremonies at the time of writing cost between $450 to $550.

 

Second location recommendation is The Altar Electric. Funkiest Melbourne locations to elope for hipsters and wannabe hipsters! No need to fly to Vegas to get married, we have our own little piece of Vegas here in Melbourne!

 

Trunk boasts its elopement location is for the realists and romantics at heart! Yummiest location for eloping couples that love American style food and are partial to cocktails!

Personally, we love this spot for a quick bite my way to see a live band play in the city.

 

After you have picked your ceremony elopement location in the great city of Melbourne. The possibilities are endless for
