Our journey began in London, where James and I met. After years of dating, he proposed on the beaches of Cornwall. We wanted to combine his passion for golf and my love of the ocean in our wedding. When we visited Cape Schanck we fell in love with the backdrop, the tea tree garden, distance from Melbourne and proximity to the ocean. So much so that the new building wasn't even completed but we knew it would be magical. We eagerly signed up.
Our wedding was different from most. Because we were living in London, we organised almost the entire thing online with RACV. We were dreading this and thought it would be difficult but Nikita at RACV Cape Schanck handled everything with ease. Nothing was too big a task for her and the other staff at RACV Cape Schanck. We met a few days prior and everything was arranged, discussed and any anxieties dissipated.
We had a lot of guests flying internationally to celebrate with us, so we wanted to make a whole weekend of it. RACV supplied a list of suggested suppliers, ideas for wine tours and organised a golf competition for us. They put on a huge BBQ the night before where the Aussies and Brits could meet and get to know each other before the big day. It was superb.
