If you’re an upcoming bride or planning a wedding, read below for all the insights into the world of weddings at Rochford.
What makes Rochford such a great venue for weddings?
“Rochford is a perfect venue for weddings. Not only because of the beautiful views of the vines and Yarra Valley, but also because it has such an open floor plan, with multiple spaces to choose from, that we can customise the wedding set-up to suit your dream wedding!”
What is the secret to a seamless wedding day?
“It’s certainly an over-used ‘secret’ but planning ahead! There’s nothing worse than having to rush around the day before your wedding finalising all the bits and bobs like your seating allocations, timings, etc”.
What’s your favourite thing about being a wedding coordinator?
“Seeing the day come together, the joy and love on everyone’s faces, there’s nothing better than watching someone’s dream wedding day come to life”.
What wedding trends do you forecast for 2023?
“Non-traditional weddings are on the rise. With couples straying from your typical run-sheet, opting to sit with their guests rather than sitting separately at a ‘bridal table’, taking bridal photos before the actual wedding, etc.
Baby’s breath and your more natural/rustic flowers and themes are as popular as ever! And wedding bouquets seem to be downsizing!”
What’s been your favourite/funniest/most entertaining wedding memory to date?
“A few of my favourite wedding moments have been the themed weddings, we’ve had a few Disney weddings, it’s always exciting to see something unique!!
It’s heaps of fun customising packages. We can add things such as lawn games, cocktail hours, photobooths, gelati carts, etc. It adds something a little extra special onto your day that makes your wedding stand out!”
What would the perfect wedding day at Rochford look like?
“The perfect wedding day involves being surrounded by your family and friends, hopefully some nice weather (however this is Melbourne after all!), having a glass of wine or 2, celebrating and dancing all night long”.
