What is a Pop Up Wedding?

You know how every newly engaged couple is full of fabulous ideas on how they want to celebrate their wedding?  But when they start planning their day they quickly realise that the the celebration they want may end up costing the equivalent of a deposit for a new home?

Well, pop up weddings offer a solution…

Pop up weddings are disrupting the wedding industry by offering couples a premium wedding package, without the premium price tag, in a way that feels private, elegant and stylish. There’s no skimping – The Peninsula Pop Up Wedding Co’s pop up weddings are decadent affairs.

In fact, the reason pop up weddings are such a brilliant alternative for couples who want a beautiful wedding without spending a fortune is because several couples end up effectively combining their buying power. Because a pop up wedding is an event where up to seven couples get married -separately and privately – at the same venue, using the same suppliers on the same day.

So the financial burden of having a fabulous wedding celebration is shared with other couples who benefit equally.

Awesome.

The Portsea Hotel

14 FEBRUARY & 14 SEPTEMBER 2017

As the winner of yet another ABIA Award for the Best Wedding Reception Venue in 2016, we’re thrilled to announce that The Portsea Hotel is one of our venues for our 2017 pop up weddings.

The Peninsula Pop Up Wedding Co. will transform the Hotel’s sought after upstairs reception space, The Deck (pictured), into a gorgeous ceremony and champagne reception space, complete with simple, elegant rose gold arbor and an abundance of greenery and flowers.

The Deck has breathtaking panoramic bay views, but it is protected from the elements, so there’s no need to worry if it rains. And, as it’s located upstairs with its own bar and facilities, it is a completely private space that cannot be viewed or accessed from anywhere else in the Hotel.

Best of all, the Hotel lawn with sweeping bay views, the Portsea Pier and the beach are all a two minute walk away. So there’s plenty of options for your photoshoot.

And, if you want to keep celebrating onsite after your pop up wedding, you can arrange a meal, morning or afternoon tea or canape reception in the bar or restaurant if you wish.

We don’t like to rush you, so be quick!

There are only seven available pop up wedding packages on each date.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

Can we book a meal or celebration at the venue after our wedding?

Absolutely! Both The Portsea Hotel and the The Baths would be delighted to accommodate you and your guests. You can book a meal or morning or afternoon tea and we’ll provide you with all the details in your Pop Up Wedding Toolkit when you book.

Are other drinks available during the champagne reception?

Champagne will be served to your guests as part of your package following your ceremony. If you’re particularly thirsty or want to purchase a beverage other than champagne during the reception you will be able to do so at the private bar. Or you may choose to add a set sum to a bar tab in advance. Water will, naturally, be available for all.

Do children count towards our 30 guests?

No. Children under the age of 12 do not count towards your limit of 30 guests.

What is a Notice of Intended Marriage?

In Australia, all couples seeking to marry must lodge a legal document called the Notice of Intended Marriage (or NIOM) a minimum of one calendar month before their wedding day. We close our pop up weddings to bookings 5 weeks before the event date to allow couples time to complete their NIOM and have it officially witnessed and lodge it with us.

What’s Our Story?

The Peninsula Pop Up Wedding Co was founded by Naomi Korolew, a wedding industry professional and local Mornington Peninsula resident. 

The average cost of weddings in Australia has sky rocketed, hitting $65,482 in 2015!

Naomi identified a gap in the wedding industry to cater for couples who still want to have a fabulous premium wedding experience, but not at the expense of a first home, their kids education or other financial goals.

So she set out to make fabulous weddings affordable on a budget and she is proud of managing to keep The Peninsula Pop Up Wedding Co’s package cost to under 6% of the national average wedding spend!

Naomi adopted a crowd funding model and utilises off peak dates to access the best local suppliers.

Ensuring the business model is sustainable is very important to Naomi and she is currently working on The Peninsula Pop Up Wedding Co. becoming the first ever carbon neutral Australian wedding provider.

It’s a legal thing…
