INTIMATE WEDDING RECEPTIONS

If you are dreaming of an intimate wedding; a smaller celebration with a more intimate atmosphere. You can book the level 1 function space and lobby or level 2 function space. Transform it any way you desire from elaborate to basic with your own supplier, or we can assist you, or even do it yourself.

Bring your own caterer and beverages*. Or our team can assist with recommendations to cater an elaborate stand up or sit-down reception for your intimate group.

You may wish to transform your penthouse accommodation for your intimate reception after your beach or balcony wedding.

Small intimate weddings are perfect for making the most of the day or even the whole weekend together with your loved ones. Fewer guests means that you can be more attentive to them and even involve them more in your experience.

Planning a wedding getaway with your loved ones involved; plan some activities to keep everyone involved for the duration of the stay. You tell our team what activities you would like to include, and we will curate a package to suit you. If you are unsure; tell our team more about yourself and your loved ones and they will tailor suggestions for you.

ELOPEMENT

Has COVID-19 dashed your plans for a large wedding or the idea of a big bridal bash just not your thing? Are you and your partner the spontaneous types always looking for an unconventional experience? Maybe you're trying to save money for a new life together and prefer your beach holiday to double as a place for your nuptials. A Carmel at Sorrento elopement could be your wedding style! By getting married at Carmel at Sorrento, you can have an intimate and romantic elopement wedding ceremony with accommodation included.

Carmel at Sorrento elopements are best suited for couples who value experiences over things. Couples who want a wedding that is more about them spending time together on an adventure. Our elopements are an opportunity for you to craft an authentic true-to-you experience. That aligns with your ethics and supports your future goals together, rather than focus on traditions.

We provide a build-your-own elopement package so you plan exactly the wedding that embodies your personal style. We can add an intimate bespoke wedding reception to any one of our elopement packages.

Our packages include everything you need to have a luxury intimate and romantic elopement. Planning your intimate wedding with the Carmel at Sorrento team is simple and stress-free. Whatever you have in mind, we are eager to help you.

WHY WAIT

There is absolutely no reason why you need to wait 12 to 24 months to get married. If you elope, you can be married in just over a month! Under Australian law, you just need to submit a “Notice of Intended Marriage (NOIM)” to an authorised celebrant. At least one month before your intended date of marriage. So, in a month or two, you could start your new life together as a couple.

Create an intimate moment for you and your partner to become a married couple, with your closest family, or we can be your witnesses.

PROPOSALS
