Nadia Venzke and Ryan Golder


Not wanting the fuss and stress of a big party, Nadia and Ryan just wanted their wedding day to be intimate and romantic. Keeping the wedding local, the couple organized the Goondiwindi Courthouse, local hair and make-up, and a friend each to act as their witnesses. All parties were sworn to secrecy.

Keeping the traditional elements of a wedding that they loved, the pair said their own vows in the court room and had photographs captured to remember the day. The wedding party then celebrated at Rivergums Retreat with their first dance and a six course meal. The newlyweds met their families the next day for lunch and to announce the big news.
