Try Your Perfect Wedding – Forest Wedding Experience

October 7, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Imagine having the chance to test-drive your dream wedding? To bring each romantic, whimsical element together in one glorious whole. To actually taste, touch, smell, see and hear your day before you book it.
And guess what? It’s happening. Thanks to the spectacular Strathvea Guesthouse – in conjunction with Find My Perfect Venue – a handpicked selection of vendors will be delivering the full rainforest wedding experience to a limited guest-list of engaged couples this October.
Every detail of this event bucks the ‘cattle call’ trend of standard wedding fairs, instead bringing couples up close and personal with their potential nuptial reality.
From the moment you arrive in the off-site car park, and are chauffeured to the venue in a stunning classic car, right through to enjoying your first dance in a vintage marquee, every possible element of your day is there to be explored. Designed to take the heavy lifting out of wedding planning, this event will allow couples to truly enjoy the experience.
With a glass of champagne or beer in hand, guests will be pampered just as they would on the morning of their wedding by a selection of industry-leading barbers, hairdressers and make-up artists.
Experience a complimentary mini photo shoot with a renowned Yarra Valley photographer against the backdrop of a rainforest Cathedral – the precise space where you could soon be exchanging your vows. Then immerse yourself in the vintage charm of Strathvea Guesthouse. Tour the chef’s kitchen, reading rooms and guesthouse accommodation, before reveling in a couture extravaganza in the Dining Hall. Yes, that’s right – you could even find ‘the’ dress. Between whiskey tastings, samples from an array of food trucks, gelati carts, and artisan chocolatiers, every palate will be catered for and your dining options explored at leisure. Bottomless lattes will then fuel a host of lawn games and photo booth fun, while children snuggle into teepees with their own entertainment.
With exclusive open day discounts from all participating vendors and Strathvea Guest House itself, it’s the perfect opportunity to watch the wedding you’ve dreamt of unfolding before your very eyes.

Tickets go on sale July 1st (Children 12 and under free of charge).
