Tour, taste and toast at RACV Torquay Resort’s first Wedding Open Day

RACV Torquay Resort is opening its doors to couples planning their nuptials, for its first Wedding Open Day on Sunday 10 September.

Soon-to-be wed couples are invited to this free event to take inspiration from exhibitors and tours of the award-winning* Resort over luxurious canapés and sparkling wine. Couples can seek advice and ideas to help plan their ‘big day’ from an array of event professionals including celebrants, florists, cake designers, photographers and videographers, wedding entertainers, and stylists.

Four tour sessions will run throughout the day, led by the Resort’s wedding specialists. Couples will be shown around the venue to experience the views, learn of the possibilities for holding their special day at the Resort, and sample the catering and five-star service it is famous for.

RACV Torquay Resort Manager Dean Newell said he is pleased to be able to hold their first Wedding Open Day.

“Our staff pride themselves on the feedback we receive following every wedding ceremony. From the initial meeting with a new couple, through to the end of the night when that last guest is leaving, the Resort staff are meticulous with their attention to detail and quality of service,” said Mr Newell.

“The Resort has hosted a variety of luxury weddings and bespoke engagements, so it makes sense to hold our first Wedding Open Day to pass on the team’s wonderful expertise and ideas to help create the perfect event.”

Over the past four years, RACV Torquay Resort has hosted weddings of more than 200 guests through to intimate celebrations of less than 50 guests. Couples are guided every step of the way to plan their ‘dream wedding’.

The Wedding Open Day is a free event and open to the public. Tours of the Resort are scheduled at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 1.30pm and 2.30pm. Register for a tour via the RACV website at
