Weddings around the World - Straight from Australia

What is special about Margaret River Region.

Margaret River Region is situated south west of Perth in Western Australia, known for its craft breweries, boutiques and surrounding wineries. Beaches and surf breaks line the nearby coast, whose waters host migratory whales from Jun to Nov. Is a relaxing and scenic drive from Perth CBD, about 2.5 hours by car. The Margaret River Wine Region is renowned world-over for producing some top notch, award-winning wines. Its well known by Foodies over the world of the abundance of fresh produce who travel here for the once a year Margaret River food festival. Some of the worlds best chefs have set up their little restaurants and often cater for wedding parties and any celebration.

Is it a perfect fit for a destination wedding? How far is it from the Airport connectivity?

Many of my couples, local or from overseas have chosen the Margaret River Region to host their long weekend wedding. While the bridal party is getting ready, the region offers many interesting activities such as, wine tasting tours, surfing by the beach, hiking, canoeing, local markets and much much more. As it is not just a one-day celebration, the couple, family and their guests always leave relaxed with many fond memories for years to come.

The drive from the airport is about 2.5 to 3 hours and with easy highway connections. Once past the city of Perth, it is a scenic and relaxing trip down country highways especially in Spring when everything is still green. I personally always look forward to it and who can resist those stunning sunsets over the ocean.

Can you name three wedding venues in Margaret which touched your heart and why?

Oh, this question is not easy to answer, as there are so many beautiful venues. Most venues are comfortable in hosting 80 to 100 guests, as they have restaurants attached to their own vineyards. Some vineyards can cater for marquee weddings or weddings seated under the stars.

Australia will effectively kick back from the Covid-19, do you think Australia will start holding destination weddings from people all over the world, would it be a replacement for Europe, considering Europe is the epicentre of Covid-19?

I think Destination Weddings will slow down for a little while, as many have lost on their investments during COVID-19. Getting married in a European castle in a country site, may still be on the table for some, but the guests count will certainly shrink. Bali, Malaysia and Thailand will still be a strong contender for Destination Weddings.

What is the Vision of a 2020 Couple going to be like?

Smaller intimate weddings
Fine dining experiences and wine pairing
Food stations
More colour experimenting with linen and crockery and cutlery
Using unconventional materials
Tech savvy

What kind of theme was trending in Australia for the past 4 years, and what is going to trend in the next 2 years?

Hanging floral arrangements have been dominating the last view seasons. Florals are now being replaced more with Pampas grass and native plants.More couples splurge on floral arrangements and have been cutting cost on other items such as stationery and even photographers fees.

What is your favourite theme to design a wedding?

I prefer personalization more than a theme! Each of my couples wedding is one of a kind and translates my couples style and budget. It is so much more fun to tell their story and weave all the special traditions and quirkiness into their wedding keeps the guests busy visually and creates memories. I love hearing guests say, that this wedding truly reflected the couples and familys personalities. Each couple is like a black canvas and together we will paint their picture.

?If you were given a choice to choose another destination outside Australia for a destination wedding for your client, what would it be and why?

Australia is called Down Under for a reason. Traveling is expensive for us. Weddings are a family affair and some of the older generations may not endure long plane trips. With that said, anything within an 8 to 10-hour direct flight path such as Mauritius, Vanuatu, Fiji, any destination which will provide a week or weekend getaway for all involved. Personally, I would love to create a wedding in New Zealand, high up on a mountain overlooking the world!
