We like to think we’re pretty HIP at Hitched In Paradise! { We totally did not mean to create that acronym} Mixing style, fun and creative flair, we are a talented and passionate team of wedding ninjas, who love nothing more than creating gorgeous and stress free wedding experiences in paradise!

Established in 2016 - Hitched in Paradise was born from an idea of providing intimate yet stylish marriage ceremonies, for those who don't want to follow the well beaten path in the wedding industry. Its founder Benjamin Carlyle, a popular wedding celebrant in the Gold Coast to Byron Bay region, was witnessing the movement of many modern couples choosing to Elope up here in paradise. This trend showed that many modern couples were wishing to get Hitched in our perfect pieces of paradise, yet still have enough money left to put some cash on their house deposit! Here we are all those years later, with so many incredible moments of Love & Connection etched into our memories.



Benjamin teamed up with his gorgeous wife Tarnie, who has 20 years experience in co-ordination and design. Tarnie comes from a creative background in the Film and T.V. Industry, working directly alongside A-list stars, her organisational skills are guru status and she has a wonderful calming nature when the pressure cooker fires up! Benjamin is a highly sought-after Celebrant and has performed over 1000 ceremonies, both large and small. His passion lies in helping couples kick-start their Marriage Ceremony experience on the right note - not a boring one! Along the way he has connected with some of the best Wedding Ninjas in the region and has creatively tailored our awesome stress free Elopement & Mirco Wedding packages.

Together they're a super happily married couple and loving life with their two healthy and adventurous boys. And the new addition of Panda the wonder dog in their home.
