WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT WEDDINGS?
I love seeing all the hard work and planning of the bride & grooms and their families come together, and the joy on everyone’s face when the bride (or couple) walks down the aisle.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO COUPLES PLANNING THEIR RECEPTION?
Don’t try and fit too much into the reception, you want to have time to relax and enjoy spending time with your guests. I would also have an MC (it can be a family member or friend) – it makes the reception flow better and guides guest through the evening. They are responsible for keeping things running on time and allows the bride and groom to relax.
WHAT’S THE ONE THING THAT COUPLES FORGET BUT IS SO IMPORTANT?
To appreciate that everyone in the room is there to celebrate their marriage and they won’t even notice if things don’t go exactly as you planned.
WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT RACV RESORT?
The flexibility to host both a ceremony and reception – and that we are so close to the Creswick State Forest, so wedding parties can get some amazing photos.
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM WEDDING?
I had a big formal wedding which I loved, but if I were to get married again – I’d elope in Vegas with the full tacky wedding at the Little White Chapel and Elvis would marry us.
