Have You Heard Y.E.T? – May 2023
Welcome to the may edition of Have You Heard Y.E.T?!
Welcome to the May edition of our e-newsletter ‘Have you Heard Y.E.T?!’
This month’s article features an update on what’s happening at Y.E.T, a wrap-up of the 2022 / 2023 wedding season and our feature destination of the month – Victoria’s Yarra Valley.
What’s happening at Your Exclusive Tours?
April has been a busy month with the Easter Break, School Holidays, and Anzac Day giving us 1 full working week and 3 short weeks. Who doesn’t love a long weekend?! Your Exclusive Tours is a family run business, and we took the opportunity over one of long weekends to enjoy some family and down time.
When reviewing our bookings for April, the majority of our tours were family focused and orientated. Whether it is a family of 4 or father vs son out on tour or a lovely couple getting married to start their own family. It was all about family, and family matters….
As the Founder and Managing Director of Your Exclusive Tours, my family is the greatest source of inspiration, motivation, and support. A real highlight is when arriving home and being greeted by my daughter and son to be asked “did the guests have a good time and can I see the photos”. The excitement and enjoyment is very rewarding, and then being critiqued via them 😉as well.
When we capture those magical moments for our guests in one of the many amazing and spectacular locations we visit, there is smiles, laughter & banter, and sheer enjoyment of excitement. We know we have created and captured that memorable experience for our guests. This why we love what we do.
Over the next few newsletters of ‘Have you heard YET?!’, I look forward to introducing you to the Your Exclusive Tours team.
YET wraps up another wedding season…
What a sensational Wedding Season it has been over 2022 / 2023 season with Your Exclusive Tours being very honoured and privileged to provide our services to some amazing couples on their wedding day.
Over the past several months (September 2022 to April 2023), we have provided wedding transport and transfers to some amazing venues in stunning destinations. From Melbourne’s laneways & gardens to the vines and rolling hills in the Yarra Valley & Dandenong Ranges, beaches to the vines of the Mornington Peninsula, and rugged coastline and rural charm of Phillip Island.
All of our Wedding Destination Services have been customised and tailored to suit each wedding, from a simple bridal party or groom transfer, 3 to 4 hour package (Groom + Bridal Party Transfers and Newly Weds Getaway), or complex movements of the wedding party, family, and guests to and from the wedding.
One the real highlights we saw this season was the number of midweek weddings. A move away from your traditional day of a Friday or Saturday. This is a trend set to continue into the 2023 / 2024 season and beyond.
Thank you to the wonderful couples that have let us be a part of their wedding.
