Kristina and Tony's story
On our first-year anniversary, Tony and I decided to go to the RACV Healesville Country Club & Resort for a weekend away. Tony organised weeks prior with the in-house wedding coordinator a surprise proposal in the gazebo with a hidden videographer and photographer. The day was followed by a beautifully set-up picnic by the lake. With a breathtaking backdrop, Tony and I knew we'd look no further to host our wedding right there!
RACV Healesville Country Club & Resort was the only venue we viewed for our wedding and we knew instantly that we didn't need to look any further. It had everything we were after: spectacular views, beautiful decor, incredible food and the loveliest staff!
We instantly decided to set our wedding date a year after the proposal. Our dream wedding vision was to have our close and intermit family and friends celebrating our love in a beautiful weekend-away location where we could spend as much time with them as possible.
Both Tony and I were raised Orthodox, so though we had decided not to get married in a traditional church by a priest, we still incorporated the Orthodox crowning into our civil ceremony to respect our upbringing.
Our wedding day fell on the AFL grand final. As we have lots of footy fans in our family, we decided to have a 1pm ceremony and have a private room organised with food and drinks screening the game to ensure we had their full attention during the times that mattered. It worked well for us as we took the opportunity to take photos on site with golf carts and off site at the Rochford Winery.
Our reception was beautiful, simple and romantic. It was a compilation of good food, speeches that made you laugh and cry, lots of dancing (even the traditional Serbian and Macedonian Kolo) and lots of love!
