"We are a family business, having raised our two children, Darcy and Vanessa, here in Kinglake for the past 17 years. In fact, the whole team is a family - it's just our culture! You will not feel more comfortable anywhere, we are relaxed and welcoming. We just want to help you create your dream weekend."
Together, we created a rustic bohemian wedding of unimaginable beauty – a day and evening full of magic and love! Just watch the video at the bottom of this page to see for yourself. The rest is history – Forest Weddings was born!
This is a new direction for our family business, and one that brings us a great deal of fuzzy happiness. Who doesn’t love a beautiful wedding in an environment like ours?
Our venue is very unique in that you can have up to 120 guests stay overnight, share a great breakfast together the next morning and just embrace all the love over a full weekend without having to rush home.
Michelle LOVES love, and nothing makes her heart glow like showing you around our magical venue whilst hearing about your love for each other, your dreams for your big day and the little quirks about your love that make you smile.
You will soon find out that Colin is a big softy and loves when he gets the chance to host a wedding tour. Even when he’s not needed, you can find him hanging around the morning of a wedding, simply admiring the hustle and bustle of our crew bringing together yet another magical celebration.
Donna loves many things, including coffee, cracking a joke, and working hard to make things perfect. She is always invested in our couple’s vision, and has been known to watch scenes from the movie, Breaking Dawn, over and over again simply because a couple wanted their wedding to look just like Edward and Bella’s from ‘Twilight’.
