An epic wedding right on your doorstep
You just have to skim the amazing roll up of wedding industry professionals coming along to Love + Light 2018 to see we’ve got something pretty special going on here. On-trend businesses with a flair for design, contemporary thinking and ahead of the game - and now you’re going to get to share them with all your besties. A hometown wedding helps you build on that gorgeous memory bank, adding to those rituals you’ve known and loved, making them part of something even more momentous. Friday night drinks at Thousand Pound, a long lunch at Pickled Sisters… maybe a float down the river in summer or catch up with friends at the Rowing Club in Corowa. You might follow a few days with family at home by stepping up your accommodation at Circa, Barkly Suites or stunning Mt Ophir with its freshly refurbished tower suite.
You know what’s here and can’t wait to share
Don’t let your mates miss one bit of Rutherglen and beyond. While some of your guests may only stay for the couple of nights over your wedding, there are others who may have more time up their sleeves. Put together a suggested itinerary or list of must-visit places from throughout North East Victoria and into southern New South Wales. Foodies will be happy whichever direction they travel, with no shortage of delicious treats. Plan for a trip to the Milawa Gourmet region where they’ll be able to stock up at the Cheese Factory and Milawa Mustards, or follow the Prosecco Road up into the King Valley. Season dependent, it’s not far to travel to go skiing at resorts including Falls Creek, Mt Hotham and Mt Buller. Those who love a winter wonderland but aren’t into flying downhill at a hundred miles an hour can sip on a red and keep the home fires burning!
And it’s so easy to get here…
It’s amazing to think how lucky we are with Albury Airport nearby: overseas guests can fly in to Australia then arrive via one of over dozens of flights each week. Virgin Airlines, Rex, Qantas and JetGo fly in from Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney and even the GoldCoast. Guests can hire cars from the airport or connect via shuttle bus into Albury CBD before heading on to Rutherglen. Otherwise, it’s an easy trip along the Hume from Canberra, Melbourne or Sydney if your guests prefer to drive. Provide a full list of planes, trains and automobiles when you send out your invites and there’s no excuse for anyone to miss out. With so many transport options available, we really are in the middle of everywhere here in Rutherglen, You know it, we know it and pretty soon all your friends will too!
