Wedding: 05/12/2015

Posted by Kate | 4 February, 2016

Slavica Otovic and Novac Djirlic needed no-one but each other for their tropical elopement to sunny North Queensland.

The Melbourne couple, Slavica, 48, and Novak, 44, first met at work and sparks flew. “I recall my first day at work and looking at Novak I thought ‘Mmm, that’s nice,'” laughs Slavica.

“All these thoughts were running through  my head like ‘Is he single, does he have kids and has he noticed me?'” she adds. “I just could not keep my eyes off him and every time he approached me I couldn’t stop laughing and was very nervous around him.”

Novak invited his future bride to a social gathering of work colleagues and showed up at Slavica’s door with a huge bunch of roses. “The rest is history now!” she says.

The couple eloped to Queensland’s Trinity Beach and wed on December 5, 2015. “It was just the two of us, the weather was perfect, the photography amazing, the celebrant funny, the wedding arbour stunning… and the location to die for,” Slavica says.

“What more could a girl ask for?”
