Easy, elegant elopement: Riverview Lodge

An elopement. With historic connotations of clandestine love and secret marriage, weddings don’t come more romantic than that.

In modern usage, the concept of elopement has shed most of its associations with melodrama and angry parents, and has come to represent a wedding that is romantic, removed from routine, and smaller in scale.

At Riverview Lodge in Hanmer Springs you can marry the love of your life with views of your dreams in plain sight. Paradise Elopements have put together a package combining the stunning Riverview Lodge as the venue, celebrant Kineta Booker, photographer Chaznel Steenkamp, and Get Grazy. All you need to do is choose the date, your outfit, and get the marriage licence.

You can bring along your two witnesses, or the team will organise this for you. The bride and groom can stay in the private and secluded cottage, and there is room for elopement guests on site.

Riverview Lodge also offers full lodge book-outs, entailing exclusive use of the entire venue, including accommodation, for five couples. It is ideal for the bride and groom, parents and/or bridesmaids and groomsmen. “Our website has all the information to plan your day,” say Riverview Lodge owners Sefton and Toni Early. “We’d love to be the location for the elopement of your dreams.”
