With a British background, Emma and Matt wanted to show off the beauty of country Australia to their wedding guests. Their Dunkeld country wedding was the most beautiful way to invite their loved ones not only into their own private love story, but also their love story with the incredible country side. Looking back on the planning of their big day, Emma has some practical advice to share with engaged couples who are getting married on a long weekend in the country…
Emma says: “Looking back I do remember a couple of things that I wish I had thought of beforehand.
1. Organising/booking a wedding on a public holiday weekend (in our case Easter weekend) remember to take in/consider the additional costs/expenses for those suppliers you will be using on your big day.
2. Consider the distance that your guests will need to travel on the day and also the distance for your suppliers. A couple of incurred costs which we did not take into consideration was due to the distance that our suppliers had to travel to make our weekend, some do require overnight accommodation.”
