How it works


The Ceremony

I Do Nelson Pop Up Weddings

The Perfect Day
We make weddings more accessible and affordable thanks to a super talented I Do Nelson team who come together in a beautiful location to host 3 to 4 stylish, all-inclusive wedding packages, on the same day. Each couple has 90 minutes exclusively at the venue.

The Ceremony

The Ceremony

An intimate affair
Celebrate your love and join together as one in front of your closest friends and family. You’ll have a professional celebrant that shares in your special moment and you can choose your own music and vows to make sure your day is truly yours.

The Reception

The Reception

A toast to the happy couple
There’s time to pop the bubbly open, cut the cake and have your first dance. It’s a special ‘mini’ reception with your nearest and dearest.

Photography

Creating lasting memories
We will organise a professional photographer to be on hand from the moment you arrive. You’ll have time to have a professional photoshoot, and will be supplied with up to 40 photos of your special day.

FAQ

We cater for up to 25 guests and the price is fixed for up to that number, You can add additional guests for $35 per person. This covers the cost of extra bubbles and cake. The maximum number of guests depends on the venue.
This is totally up to you and how you picture your perfect day. Some couples prefer to keep it completely private and we’re able to cater for these very romantic, intimate affairs. We will step in as a witness if you choose this option.
Trust us, it is! However, if you had something else in mind for your perfect day – perhaps an extended ceremony or reception, or want a whole afternoon with a photographer, we are happy to work with you to make this work by booking an extended session for you.
Of course! We think personalised vows are rather romantic and share your true feelings. We work with some of Nelson’s top celebrants who make the process smooth and simple. And yes, you can absolutely choose your processional song. Just let us know 2 weeks in advance and if we don’t have it in our music library, we’ll ask you to provide us with a digital format.
Without a marriage certificate, we can’t perform a legally recognised wedding. You have to arrange a marriage licence at least 3 working days before you want to get married. You’ll need to provide our celebrant’s name, the location and date of the wedding when you apply. You don’t need a marriage certificate for commitment ceremonies or vow renewals though.
Our photographer will be there from the beginning so you’ll have photos of your ceremony and reception as well as a private wedding portrait session. You can expect to get between 25 and 40 quality images from your wedding.
Everyone is welcome here at I Do Nelson. We love to share in an elopement, just remember you might need to check about how to make sure it’s legal in your home country.
We allow 15 – 20 minutes for your ceremony, followed by a 30-40 minute reception – including bubbly and cake. Then you’ll head off for your own personalised 30 – 40 minute portrait session while your guests mingle and then we’ll organise for everyone to gather to join in the photo fun.
