Sanja & Zoran

Sanja and Zoran’s special day was the epitome of a fun Southern Highlands wedding. From the bride’s patent leather orange shoes, the traditional Serbian traditions, the absolute laughter on the faces of the bride and groom and the intimate setting that set the tone for the day.  Sanja and Zoran chose Gemma Clarke Photography  to be there to capture it all.

Sanja tells the story of who they came to be. “Zoran and I met almost nine years ago in a band.. iBand in fact (the same band that played on our wedding night). The keyboard player heard about this young girl called Sanja who apparently sings well and decided to invite her for the audition. Once she arrived, she had her eye on the guitarist (Zoran) and that’s where it took off … I still sing with the band, but Zoran left the band in order to complete the classical guitar studies. After almost 9 years together… there was a lot of talk about marriage and our future together (especially after we have been living together for 6 years), but Zoran still decided to surprise me and organised a sea plane trip from Sydney to Bells at Killcare where he proposed in their beautiful gardens. I remember thinking ‘this is it!’ but then I’ve thought that same thought on different romantic occasions so I really wasn’t sure what I was in for. It was the most beautiful day in Sydney. ”

The couple made each guest a boutonniere, Sanja explaining, “Given our Serbian background, it was very important to add a touch of different culture and traditions. This also meant more work for us :). Traditionally, every guest at a wedding is wearing a boutonniere – so we hand made over 120 boutonnieres.”

The bride and groom each had one bridal party member, the bride noting, “In Serbian tradition, a groom has one best man and the bride has one ‘best woman’ – called ‘kum’ and ‘kuma’ respectively. These people are carefully selected and they play the key role in the wedding and in the couples’ life post-wedding.”

The bride wore a cocktail length dress designed by Lisa D’Amico of D’Amico Couture. She tells, “When I first went shopping for a dress, I tried on a lot of dresses, but didn’t feel comfortable in any of them. I kept thinking – this is not me. Then a friend recommended designing a dress. I still didn’t know what design to go with. I went through my wardrobe trying to figure out what is my style – and there it was – my favourite blue dress. It was the right length, the right style – it was me. Then I knew – I have to get my dress custom made and not blow the budget.

One of my friends with an eye for detail and a touch of quirkiness helped me put this idea on paper and we were half way there. I found out about dressmaker Lisa D’amico through a friend and when I showed her the design, she knew what to do and I knew I was in great hands. My cocktail length wedding dress was coming together. And I never looked back.”

Those incredible patent orange heels almost didn’t make it onto the bride’s feet. Sanja tells, “About 10 days before the wedding, I had a little accident at work – I fell down the stairs and injured my big toe. It wasn’t broken, but it was swollen and it hurt so much! That’s it – no heels for you Sanja and forget about pointy shoes – there is no way you will recover in time. The swelling went down in a few days but the pain was still there, not to mention the bruises I had on my legs and feet which my maid of honour Claudia tried to hide with makeup very carefully. Was it the cold weather or all the excitement I felt on the day, I don’t know – I forgot about my big toe and squeezed my foot into my shoe. You just don’t think about anything in those moments.”

Sanja and Zoran chose Bendooley Estate  for their wedding day, noting, “After almost nine years together, Zoran and I talked about our wedding a lot and almost after our first visit to Southern Highlands years ago, we knew it had to happen there. When one of my colleagues from work mentioned Bendooley Estate at Berrima – we drove down to check it out and fell in love instantly. That was the first venue we saw and every venue afterwards could not compare. It ticked all the boxes – reception and ceremony at the same place, the gardens, the rustic/country feel, the good food, the location.”

Sanja walked down the aisle to “An acoustic version of ‘Wonderful Tonight’ by Eric Clapton”. A surprise for the groom.

Sanja remembers, “The favourite part of the day for both of us was definitely the bridal party photo session with Gemma, our photographer. We had so much fun on that beautiful but cold day. Gemma was fantastic, so spontaneous and open to suggestions – we were exploring the estate and enjoyed every moment of it. There was not a lot of posing – just a lot of laughs! And when you have someone as good as Gemma – she will capture it! ”

Each guest received a carefully thought out wedding favor, the bride remarking, “For guest favours, we always wanted to give our guests something useful and unique that can also serve as a decoration on the day – so we decided on potted plants. After a few early morning (very early morning!) visits to Sydney Flower Markets we decided on Polyanthus – the colourful flowers were perfect in small pots decorating our tables. Guests were very happy and no plant was left behind (which was the plan).”

The Serbian traditions continued, Sanja explaining, “Another interesting touch of tradition was the ‘bride’s stolen shoe’. During dinner, or just before the first dance, a young boy from the groom’s side crawls under the bridal table and steals the bride’s shoe. He keeps the shoe until the best man/groomsman pays good money to get the shoe back icon smile Sanja and Zorans Fun Southern Highlands Wedding Zoran’s best man – Michael tried to trick the boy with toy cars and trade them for the shoe however the boy was well informed to not accept anything other than money. This was very entertaining for the guests.”

Sanaja tells of the first dance. “We danced to “Moon Dance” – soundtrack from August Rush (one of our favourite movies). What is unique.. Zoran is a guitarist as I’ve mentioned but he just can’t dance.”

iBand kept guests on the dance floor – the couple booking the band that brought them together! Sanja remembering, “We were so happy and lucky to have the band that brought us together play at our wedding (Zoran used to play the guitar and I used to sing with the band). I used these privileges to surprise Zoran with the band performing his favourite song – “Sultans of Swing” by Dire Straits. The expression on his face was priceless! He even picked up a microphone to sing along.”

Kylie and Dan’s Fiji Family Getaway Wedding

Kylie & Dan

I don’t think anyone can deny how wonderful it is to have family around you – especially on an occasion like a wedding. Kylie and Dan took a different approach to their wedding day – they wanted to create a family getaway and so with just ten of their nearest and dearest they planned a Fiji family getaway destination wedding. They  wed against the water, they dined under the stars and surrounding that? Plenty of massages, swimming and of course – coconut cocktails! Blue Robin Photography joined them to capture their celebrations.

Kylie tells their story. “I had traveled to London to live, travel and work. Dan and I met at a hospital (funnily enough, appropriately named The Heart Hospital) in London where we both worked together. Dan was a Cardiac Physiologist and I, a cardiac nurse in the coronary angiography department. We were friends for quite sometime before realising that we both really liked one another a lot. Our relationship progressed quickly and after a couple of years Dan made the move back with me to Australia to live. Before moving back to Australia Dan had proposed to me on a city break holiday in New York when we were on a horse and cart in Central Park. I was completely surprised as I had no idea that he was going to propose to me! Of course after a few surprised oh my goodnesses I said yes!!”

Kylie tells, ” I almost didn’t make it to my wedding day! The night before my wedding my future brother in law and I decided to set out in a canoe and ended up going for a swim instead. We capsized the canoe and then spent the next hour trying to get back in without any luck. It was funny at the time but as it got darker and we realised we couldn’t actually get ourselves back in we both started to worry. We were quite far out – too far to swim back. Luckily we ended up being spotted struggling by the staff of Navutu and they came to a rescue and picked us up in their speed boat much to our embarrassment. Trying to imitate Karate kid moves in a canoe before your wedding day is never a good idea!”

Kylie and Dan chose the private Navutu Stars Resort for their wedding. Kylie telling, “Dan and I were married whilst holidaying with our immediate family at Navutu Stars Resort in Fiji. Navutu Stars is a small rustic chic resort tucked away in the Yasawa Islands 30 minutes by seaplane from the mainland. The resort provided the most serene and beautiful backdrop for the intimate and private wedding we were after. Everything you hear about the Fijian people is true. The staff were all so caring and attentive and nothing you asked or requested too much trouble. We were married upon a beautiful decking overlooking the coral bay.

Our reception was a beautiful banquet set up on the beach where we ate freshly caught lobster and seafood under the stars. The venue exceeded the most perfect wedding we had dreamt of having and I would highly recommend Navutu Stars resort to those couples looking for an intimate private destination wedding venue.”

Kylie carried a sweet bouquet of fresh island blooms. She remarks, “One of the staff named Dan at Navutu made the flower arrangements himself with locally picked flowers from the island. Even the little ribbons were made from plants too.”

“The most special part for us was having both of our families together in one place. As Dan is from England, and I from Australia, our families had not met before our decision to marry. The week we had together in Fiji was not just a wedding but the chance for our families to come together as one and to get to know each other and become good friends.”

Of their photographer, Kylie notes “We were given Michael’s name and recommendation by a family member. Michael traveled with us to Fiji from Australia and stayed close by on a nearby island. Michael was absolutely amazing and we were blown away by the quality of his photographs he took on our day. He really put so much time and effort into capturing all the special moments and Michael’s positive and friendly nature helped us to feel more relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. His attention to detail is incredible and his enthusiasm when working with him was infectious.”

The couple added candle light around their reception dinner, of freshly caught lobster and seafood under the stars.  Kylie noting, “I did not have a lot of DIY details as our wedding was quite simple. I guess one DIY detail that we did do to help create a romantic atmosphere on the beach where our wedding banquet was held – we filled up 100 paper bags with sand and placed a tea light in each. We placed them around the dining table on the beach and our family created a candlelit path to our beach front bure (cottage). The tea lights really helped create a wow factor……..it was just so wonderfully romantic.”
