Be free to love and marry your own way! Elopements are a beautiful, intimate, romantic way to marry and we would love to help you!

Welcome to Elopement Colab! An all in one – boutique – affordable way to marry. 

Friends and colleagues Tracey Zehnder Celebrant and Ryan Polei Photographer work together to provide small yet beautiful marriage ceremonies with gorgeous wedding photography and video options. We can marry you when and where you choose and have many stunning location options around New Plymouth/ Taranaki to suggest.

Your Romantic Escape

Our elopement packages include a simple yet beautiful wedding ceremony, all photos via an online album and/or video options. As your celebrant Tracey will help coordinate your special day and assist with the legal aspects of getting married plus help with vows.

“Elopements are a  meaningful, relaxed way to marry while also keeping things affordable as you start your married life together”

With over 30 happy couples, we love how marrying with us empowers you to have the best day, on your terms with memories and images to treasure forever.


I couldn’t have chosen a more special package, celebrant or photographer to have made our day any better. It was literally perfect; even better than imagined. The whole day was chilled, stress free and relaxed. If you are wanting the most special intimate and deep wedding day shared between the most important people to you I honestly can’t recommend the Elopement Colab enough… Tracey and Ryan you made our day beyond perfect! Our cheeks were so sore from smiling!
