North Yorkshire* Elopements

(*and beyond...)

let's run away to wild north yorkshire

Fancy getting married but keeping it to yourselves? Feeling rebellious and want to run away together? If you're yearning for an adventure to celebrate your love story, I'm here for you.

There's so much beauty around us, so why not add your story to the landscape? I know the wild Yorkshire moors, have sought out waterfalls, and scrambled down cliffs to secret beaches. And I’d bloomin' love to share these with you. I'm a proper local, and I love to explore beautiful North Yorkshire; so let me take you by the hand - and a couple of your pals if you like!

Together we'll craft a wedding ceremony as unique as your love for each other. Pick your date, grab your photographer, and let’s head to the hills together. I can help you find the perfect spot, and I'll even bring the champers...

how to get started


First, you best make sure I'm the right celebrant for you.

Have a good old rummage around on here. If you like my style, let's arrange a chat! We'll discuss your location ideas and I'll answer any questions you might have. This is with absolutely no obligation.


If sparks fly, we'll confirm your booking and start planning! I'll get to know you and your love story inside out (the best part).


I'll kick off by sending you a little date night and questionnaires. We'll have a catch up to work out all the exciting details of your beautiful elopement.


I'll be around for as much support as you need, anytime you need it.


After I’ve got all the juicy details, we might need a few more chats. We'll explore all the different elements of your ceremony, making sure it's going to reflect you perfectly. Then, I'll start working on your unique ceremony script and elopement plan...


You'll sign off the final plan, and we're ready to go. We'll work out logistics, look at the weather, and head into the hills.

"Eleanor just made it all so easy and came up with ideas that we would never have thought of! We really felt like she took the time to get to know us as a couple so our ceremony felt totally unique to us.


I would recommended Eleanor to any couple looking to tie the knot, she is an absolute gem!"

burning questions

what kind of locations could we elope to?

I've lived all over; from Pickering on the North York Moors, to Scarborough (Scarbados) on the coast. I now live in York, and years of exploring far and wide mean I know lots of hidden gems...

Ruined castles, haunting monasteries. Ancient woodlands. Endless, prehistoric beaches. Moorlands that stretch for miles. Clifftops and valley viewpoints.

I would LOVE to know your dream location. Let me know, and I'll do my best to scout out whatever you're looking for.

how much notice do you need?

I know that elopements can often be last minute, and that's absolutely fine. While as much notice as possible is always grand, I know that eloping doesn't often play by the rules!


If you have flexibility, weekdays are a good bet. But let's chat! I'll always do my best to accommodate your vision. 

How does the legal bit work?

At the moment, independent Celebrant-led wedding ceremonies aren't legally recognised in England. However just as legally registering a birth is done at a different time to a christening or naming ceremony, you can divide the official side of marriage from the getting married part.

Most couples choose to have their legal ceremony ahead of time at a Registry Office. It's an elegant way of saving the fun for your wedding ceremony, and keeping the party going!

Do we only have to elope to north yorkshire...?

No! The beauty of eloping is you can go literally anywhere. My knowledge of Yorkshire helps me with location scouting, but I'm more than happy to work on finding the perfect location anywhere at all.

If you have somewhere in mind (anywhere!) I'd love to hear it! Prices may differ depending on how much support you need with location finding so always get in touch and we can make a plan.
