After meeting on TV, getting engaged and welcoming a baby, The Bachelor Australia‘s power couple Sam Wood and Snezana Markoski are now about to tie the knot.
The reality stars’ upcoming nuptials are just weeks away, and it will be a very exclusive affair to celebrate the three years they’ve been together since meeting on the show back in 2015.
“We’re getting married at the very end of the year which is really exciting,” Sam tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “We’re getting married at the very end of December in Australia.”
The couple have put a lot of thought into the guest list, and the 28 by Sam Wood founder admits it was hard work culling the number of invitees.
“It’s a very small wedding with just our closest and 70 or 80 friends and family. It’s not a crazy affair,” he explains.
“Snez’s sister had 300 at her wedding and that was culling it,” he laughs. “They’re amazed that we’ve been able to.”
A numbers game
Whether the wedding is outdoors or indoors, catering for 300 people would be a feat in terms of finding the right venue.
“It’s nice, you can’t really go in the middle,” he explains. “I think you need to go small and intimate or you go all out and it ends up being three or four hundred people.
“We just wanted something nice and small that’s still very tasteful and lovely.”
There’s only a few weeks left till the wedding, and Snezana has taken the reigns of planning the big day.
Arriving at our engagement party last night. Snez looking breathtaking. What a memorable night with our families and friends. Thank you @whoistommycollins for a killer party, @calibreaustralia for a killer outfit and my good friend and the best photographer in the business @smcdphotography for the amazing photos

“Snez has predominantly organised it,” says Sam, who proposed to Snezana back in December 2015.
“I put my input every now and then. Most of the time she goes I’ll take that on board and then doesn’t,” he laughs.
It will be a very special moment for the couple, shared with Snezana’s 13-year-old daughter Eve, and the couple’s baby Willow who was born in October last year.
This will be the second Australian Bachelor wedding this year, after Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich tied the knot in June.
