Simple Weddings

In the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula

Helping make your Dream Wedding come true...


You are getting married! We would love to help.

Let us create your beautiful, heartfelt dream wedding in the Coromandel Peninsula of New  Zealand, with our local knowledge and expertise and a minimum of stress.


Our packages include wedding planning/facilitation, the ceremony, the bouquet, photography services and more. We can create a beautiful, simple wedding to suit almost any budget. 

We specialize in elopement, outdoor and beach weddings, as we are based near Hahei, Hot Water Beach and Cathedral Cove, among many other gorgeous beaches and native forest clad hills. We believe that your special day should be stress-free, so you can be present in the moment. Whether you want your wedding to be adventurous or elegant, we have plenty to offer!

At Simple Weddings, we offer creative alternative solutions to the traditional 'Big White Wedding'.

Maybe you want to run away together and leave all the fuss behind, maybe you want a green wedding among nature with a low carbon footprint and minimal waste, or maybe you just don't believe in spending a fortune on getting hitched.

We understand!

You could...

Marry on Lonely Bay.

This picturesque beach is secluded and perfect for weddings!

Stay nearby at the absolutely gorgeous 970 Lonely Bay lodge, a luxurious private villa with beautiful gardens a short walk from the beach.

Have a private dinner cooked at the Lodge by a local chef.

Have a Hot Water Beach wedding.

Marry under the pohutukawa trees at Hot Water Beach. Enjoy a delicious picnic hamper from Picnic and Platter on the beach and maybe a soak in the natural hot pools. Stay in a comfortable beach house.

Marry on Hahei beach- simple!

Book a beachfront villa, or a secluded garden cottage at The Church accommodation, and stroll over the sand dunes to your seaside ceremony. You will be surrounded by beautiful photo opportunities. Later, walk along the beach to enjoy a casual pizza at The Pour House.

Have a fun, All Day Elopement

Have your perfect day with your beloved.

Maybe include a day spa, a sunset sailboat cruise, tacos or burgers, champagne or craft beer... your day should celebrate your love, your way!

"Rose is brilliant. So calm and thoughtful, helping the lead up to the wedding be stress free. Rose came on board last minute for us and we are SO thankful to have found her. I was able to have a wonderful day getting ready knowing that Rose was coordinating our ceremony set up. When I arrived I was blown away that it was everything I imagined and more. Thank you, Rose!"
