Sanja and Zoran met nine years ago while playing in a band and over the years have fallen in love with the Southern Highlands. It wasn’t hard for them to choose a Southern Highlands Winter Wedding with the warm glowing sunsets and the cosy fireplace at Bendooley Estate’s Book barn reception room. Everyone seems to get closer when the temperature goes down – snuggles for body warmth are the best!
They are both of Serbian background so for their wedding day they decided to add a few Serbian traditions. Each guest received a ‘flower’ to wear and Serbian music was playing throughout the night with lots of energetic dancing! During the speeches the bride’s shoe was ‘stolen’ by a cheeky little relative who bargained with the best man to return it – this was so funny! The weather was perfect for us and cemented the reason why Sanja and Zoran chose a Southern Highlands Winter Wedding. The most fun throughout the night was when the best man and bride and groom got up and sang with such passion.
It was a day Sanja and Zoran will never forget thanks to the love and support of their family and friends and also their stunning venue! Some things to look out for in the photos. Sanja’s stunning Orange Stone Engagement Ring, the handmade orange and red themed flowers, Sanja’s super cool orange heels and her gorgeous 3/4 length unique wedding dress. Zoran’s very dapper groom outfit including his great Kangol cap. The Best Man looked equally as dapper! And check out the crazy fun the bride and groom have trying to control the veil in the wind and then the Best Man using the bridesmaid’s Pashmina as a superhero cape! The most amazing moments have to be during the ceremony with Sanja and Zoran looking like they are the only two people in the world and their smiles could not get any bigger!
