Your names: Steven and Rebecca Kerkow

Wedding date: 12th of August, 2017


Where are you from:
We both Live in Beerwah (Beerwah Forestry Pictured Below)

Proposal story: Steve’s proposal was very us! We were living in far north Queensland at the time and we both love spending the day on the Great Barrier reef snorkeling and fishing. A few weeks before we moved to the Sunshine Coast we went out for our last day fishing and halfway to our usual spot right on sunrise Steve popped the question! It was just amazing, we spent the day enjoying each other and our exciting news. We even caught a fish or two.


Why did you choose Beerwah Hideaway for your special day: We were so lucky to have Beerwah Hideaway as our venue! We had originally booked another venue on the Sunshine Coast and they became unavailable three months out from our wedding date, after the panic we did some research and found Beerwah Hideaway not far from where we live. After a quick phone call Amanda and Glen invited us over to have a look and we were not disappointed. The gardens were everything we wanted and the reception space was also just as amazing. We really hit the jackpot!! It was meant to be!!

Describe your theme for the day: Steve and I were after a relaxed rustic theme and that is exactly what we got and more. (They also had a hint of Harry Potter)


The highlight of the day: The ceremony was the highlight. Having all our family, friends and our beautiful fur babies there for us was just amazing. We felt so loved!

Any tips or words of wisdom for future brides/grooms-to-be in the lead up to their special day: Finding a good team is key, we were so lucky as each supplier was absolutely amazing and friendly which is very important to us. The most important thing is to just relax!! The day goes so fast it’s not worth wasting time on stressing about anything, just enjoy it!
