I would absolutely recommend Hitched in Paradise to anyone thinking of getting married. The whole process was seamless and stress fee, and our special day was beyond what we could have ever imagined. My husband and I will be forever grateful for the wonderful work of Tarnie and her team of wedding ninjas!

JMtestiJo & Michael - South Miami Beach - Gold Coast

Tarnie and Ben and her team of wedding ninjas were fantastic. It was the perfect decision for us to have Hitched in Paradise coordinate our intimate wedding on the beach. As the day approached we had many curve balls thrown as the CoVid-19 restrictions started to be applied and the weather not predicted to be great on the day. What we had was someone leading us through this who was adaptable, flexible and solution focused. When we look back at our ceremony the word that comes to mind is FUN! I loved every minute and found Ben to be engaging, professional yet easy going for our ceremony, which was perfect for us.  Kristen's make-up and hair was beautiful, she was friendly and delightful to hang with as part of my wedding experience. Chantel captured some beautiful moments and the setting she took is to for our photos after the ceremony provided a stunning backdrop and has resulted in a lots of positive comments. My bouquet from the French Petal matched my dress beautifully. All we can say is a big thank you Tarnie, Ben and the Wedding Ninjas for making our day perfect and memorable!


KelJoeTestiKelli & Joe - Belongil Beach - Byron Bay

I honestly can't recommend HIP enough! Our elopement was perfect and more than anything we could have asked for. Tarnie was an absolute gem and her communication throughout the process made it so easy. Her hubby Ben is the nicest man you could meet and his personality brought such a warm sense to the ceremony. The HIP vendors are also next Level!! Genuinely lovely, warm, talented people.

If you're planning an elopement (or anything to with marriage actually) you'd be crazy not to consider, better yet, use HIP! Xx


MegBenTestiMeagan & Benjamin - Dreamtime Beach - Tweed Coast

We honestly couldn't reccommend Hitched in Paradise enough! Ben and Tarnie were incredible right from the start, everything was organised promptly and the entire process was completely stress-free. Tarnie is very responsive and on top of every last detail, right down to the weather. What a delight to work with! Ben is a such a lovely gentleman with a great presence who gave a warm, light and funny touch to the ceremony. Their team of vendors are amazing and complement each other so well. Everyone was so friendly and made us feel so comfortable, which is so important for Photos and Video! Which turned out amazing!!

Thank you soooo much for your beautiful tea for really going above and beyond to make our special day absolutely magical


AlexLukeTestiAlex & Luke - Osteria Weddings - Tweed Coast

We are so thankful to the team at Hitched in Paradise for giving us the most amazing day. I never thought planning a micro wedding could be completely stress free but it was! Tarnie organised absolutely everything to a T and was so accommodating to all my requests as well. Cherry on top was Ben!! Wow you get the best Celebrant on the Tweed Coast (or maybe Australia), Ben was so engaging and all our guests couldn't sop commenting on how great he was.  Our day was so special and something we will cherish forever.

We can't thank Tarnie and Ben enough for what they gave us!! Book with Hitched in Paradise you won't regret it!!

MistyMtestiMisty & Mike - Wategos Beach - Byron Bay

Tarnie was fantastic to work with - she provided all the information you require, she gave her input and most importantly she responded to emails promptly (very important for an OCD bride like me). It was such a seamless and stress free process from start to end! Ben was a lovely celebrant and has a good sense of humour. Even our family and friends watching over Zoom loved him!

Thank you both for making our special day extra special. We'll be forever grateful.


Hitched in Paradise Review - Tweed Coast elopement Kayleigh & Joseph - Dreamtime Beach - Tweed Coast

We just wanted to say THANK YOU SO SOOO MUCH for making our wedding day truly the best of our lives. From the start you have been incredible! Even when Covid Restrictions began throwing curve balls and we thought our wedding may be cancelled, you did the impossible and created an even more magical day! Tarnie thank you so much for being so quick replying to me emails, it made the whole process stress-free. Ben - you made us feel so comfortable and at ease. And of course we loved your bow ties. All of our vendors were fantastic! We were so pleased with the options available & couldn't have picked better ourselves!

You really did pull it off guys. You are the best in the business, we wouldn't have dreamed of going with anyone other than Hitched In Paradise (if we only could have another wedding) We wish you all the best in the future!! Joe & Kayleigh Xx 


TomMichTestiMichelle & Tom - Wategos Beach - Byron Bay

I could not recommend Hitched in Paradise enough and if we did it all over again (and honestly, we want to because it was amazing) we would always come back. Tarnie was great to deal with from the beginning, fielding many of my never ending queries, as well as providing a great list of vendors to choose from. We were originally booked when Covid all kicked off and Tarnie was patient and accommodating in my stress, to get everything rebooked. 1 year later and rain was forecast for our day and Tarnie was pre-empting my worries by suggesting alternative arrangements and thankfully we still got to play outside, it was magical!

Each and every vendor was everything we expected and more and we highly recommend all of them. The final piece of the puzzle was Ben the Celebrant, putting us and our guests both at ease and really allowing us to relax and the moment. The day, in short, was perfect! 


PRtestiPrue & Robbie - Froggy Beach - Gold Coast Elopement

WOW! What an experience that we couldn't change for the word. We couldn't have done it without those from Hitched in Paradise. Throughout the planning process they were great with communication and keeping us up to date. The best team you could have planning an elopement wedding. Benjamin our celebrant was super cool, funny and made us feel at ease on the day, along with his lovely wife Tarnie. The floral arrangements blew my mind by Lolas Wildflowers. We had the most amazing photographer and videographer!! The whole day was like a fairy tale, so intimate and special. Thank you all so much, we will never forget this special day!! WHAT A TEAM! Prue & Robbie xox

Entrusting Hitched in Paradise to plan our wedding was honestly the best decision we made, their whole team was amazing. They were able to create the perfect ceremony without any stress. My husband and I had nothing else on our minds but to enjoy the day! Tarnie was so easy to work with in the planning and Ben brought so much warmth and energy to the ceremony. Van our photographer was simply amazing! We adore our photos!

Our wedding was everything we could have hoped for and more!! Thank you Tarnie, Ben and Van for our perfect day!! Jade & Steven xx


MAttJesstestiMatt & Jess - South Miami Beach - Gold Coast

I cannot recommend Hitched In Paradise enough. Tarnie and Ben are incredible. We had the most amazing afternoon at South Miami Beach for our special day, despite the insane we were faced with. Our original plans due to Covid but we were able to shift everything back over the QLD border. Tarnie went above and beyond to organise everything for us. I could not be happier with the selected vendors we had. Everyone had an amazing afternoon and spoke so highly of both Tarnie & Ben. Thank you so much guys you made our day perfect and so stress free.

Matt & Jess!!

jstestiJo & Stephen - Byron Bay Lighthouse

Just want to say a massive THANK YOU to Tarnie & Ben. Travelling from the UK and wanting to get married in one of the most beautiful places in Australia and our favourite place all, Byron Bay!! Hitched In Paradise made it stress free and made our day truly perfect! Coming from the UK we had so many questions, which were answered quickly and were super helpful. Especially with the legal stuff!We had choices of photographers, styling and flowers. The ones we chose were truly amazing - hair & make up, photography, styling and flowers that we could not fault. Everything which we had imagined about our day came but even better than we had imagined!! Our day was truly one which we will never forget, especially the whales jumping in the background. Thank you so much. Jo & Stephen.

bptestiBrooke & Phil - Tallows Beach - Byron Bay

Our Elopement to the gorgeous Byron Bay was a day we will never forget. Ben and Tarnie made every step of the way stress free and were always fast to respond to me and requests we had leading up to our day. It truly was much more than we could have hoped and dreamed of, every single thing we received as part of the elopement package; such as flowers, hair and makeup, location, photos, etc. just blew us away with the beauty and the quality. Even though it was just us at our celebration, everyone put in 100% and we are so happy. If you're thinking of a beautiful elopement, we could not recommend this business enough!! Thank you for the memories!!

Tarnie, Ben and our HIP vendors made our dream wedding a reality!! We didn't have too many specific requests, except for that we wanted a relaxed and fun vibe for our ceremony, which Ben gave effortlessly!! We had so much fun on the day but what made it so special was that throughout the entire process leading up to our wedding, Mitch and I were able to focus on each other!! This was due to Tarnie's impeccable organisation!! Our wedding was EASY and INEXPENSIVE and just so darn beautiful!! I don't know why anyone would want to do their wedding any other way!

THANK YOU!!! Tarnie and Ben you made our Elopement the most stress free, easy, enjoyable day ever. Your communication was excellent even when I got a little nervous it might rain, Tarnie reassured me. Our Vendors you suggested were amazing, so professional and beyond our expectations. There was literally fam and friends around the world tearing up over our photos and videos, flowers + hair & makeup. Eloping is definitely the nest way, it's all about you and no stress, we literally just turned up. If you're thinking of eloping I can't recommend Hitched In Paradise enough. Everyone we spoke to that have had big weddings said "oh i wish we did that'.... and we did and we loved every moment! Many Many Thanks. Dan, Belinda and Colin the Retrodoodle.

FJtestiFleur & Janine - Wategos Beach - Byron Bay

Tarnie & Ben - what a DREAM TEAM! You both created an absolutely perfect day us, our friends + family. There wasn't one guest who didn't rave about Ben (or want to marry him!) Our wedding felt like a dream, it was just magic. The ceremony was intimate, personal, romantic and oozing with love. Every detail had been meticulously taken care of, and it showed. You were both so easy to communicate with and nothing was too much trouble.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Forever grateful, Fleur + Janine x   

LCtestiLydia & Chris - South Miami Beach - Gold Coast

We cannot thank Ben & Tarnie enough for making our dream wedding come true!! We are from England and wanted to elope to our favourite spot on the Gold Coast. They made the whole process from start to finish an absolute dream for us. The passion they both have for what they do shines through, they even gave up their wedding anniversary to marry us, what a wonderful pair they are. We couldn't have wished for a more perfect day and it's thanks to Hitched in Paradise!!

Thank you so much guys!! Lydia and Chris Robinson-Stott xxxxxx

MTtestiTara & Mark - Byron Bay Hinterland

We cannot thank Hitched in Paradise enough for the amazing wedding day they created for us. From the beginning Ben & Tarnie made us feel like we were their only clients. Their communication was fantastic right from the start, they gave us ideas about locations and facilitated interactions with our other vendors. Ben created such a beautiful ceremony and together with Tarnie and the florist, made a ceremony space that looked like it was straight out of a magazine.

Everything about Hitched in Paradise was easy, carefree and in no way stressful.

Thanks Ben, Tarnie and your amazing team of vendors.

JJtestiJessie & Jayden - Byron Bay Lighthouse

Tarnie created the most flawless day for our wedding. To start, her knowledge of the area and all things wedding meant that we had an instant answer to any question that arose in the process. The final product of our experience with Hitched in Paradise far exceeded what either if us could have imagined, Every aspect that Tarnie had coordinated was beautiful, picturesque and absolute top quality. Our celebrant Ben was nothing different. He created an extra special ceremony, calmed the grooms nerves right before the start of the ceremony and was the perfect energy for the whole day. Above all of this, having two people so down to earth and with nothing but good vibes was amazing to have a part of our big day!! Overall, complete smooth sailing, easiest and most uncomplicated experience for the bride and groom and beyond a perfect wedding. Highly recommended!!

SStestiStephen & Melissa - Wategos Beach - Byron Bay

My husband and I wanted nothing more than to elope on a beach in Byron and Hitched in Paradise made this a reality. Everything was so straightforward and easy, especially since we had to organise it from the UK. It was an absolute pleasure working with Tarnie, Ben and their suppliers. 

We can both definitely say it was absolutely perfect and the best day of our lives, we could never have done it without them!!

BMtestiMatt & Brett - Dreamtime Beach - Tweed Coast

Ben & Tarnie you have done such an amazing job from start to finish, making our day stress free and by far the most memorable moment of our lives! We have amazing photos and videos to constantly remind us.! Thank you both so much for everything. Brett & Matt

Hitched in Paradise was the best decision my husband and I made together. Leaving the normal stresses and pressures of a big wedding behind us and running to paradise. Our experience was a total dream come true! We were able to be in the moment and enjoy our precious moments forever by sharing our special day with only the most important people in our lives.

I highly recommend Tarnie's and Ben's organisation, communication and their high expectations to meet any of our needs. A total dream come true.

PKtestiKarissa & Paul - Wategos Beach - Byron Bay

We are still truly blown away by just how perfect our day turned out to be under the caring guidance and organisation from Tarnie & Ben. These guys are so easy going and put us at ease right from the start. From our initial enquiry, right up until the day after our wedding, Tarnie and Ben have gone above and beyond. The entire team who were allocated for our most special day were all legends, and of the highest quality workmanship. Considering we had backed out of a large expensive wedding in WA, we are so happy we our decision to run to PARADISE! I would do it all over again in heartbeat ( perhaps as a vow renewal as we plan to not ever have to wed again ;) )

Thank you again guys, we could not be any happier!!

LDtestiLaura & Dayne - Little Wategos Beach - Byron Bay

What can I say really apart from the fact that this team is EPIC! From the very first email I sent Tarnie, the planning of our Elopement couldn't have been any easier and stress free.

The day couldn't have run any smoother.

Hitched in Paradise were amazing from start to finish in organising our elopement at The Pass in Byron. They ensured everything went smoothly from first contact, and never once hurried us, even though we left everything to the last minute!

Ben was the perfect celebrant on the day, helping us to settle the nerves with his relaxed but professional way and giving us a ceremony that was funny, touching and just exactly the way we wanted. Especially going out of his way to include our family who were on Skype from UK.

We're so glad we found these guys as they made our day absolutely perfect!!
