Trenavin Chapel Wedding – Chantelle & Ben

Chantelle & Ben’s wedding was held on 5th October 2014 at Trenavin Chapel.  Below are some words from the bride as to how the couple met and about their wedding day.

When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
Ben and I first meet a bit over 9 years ago at the local football netball club. I (Chantelle) used to run water when Ben played footy and got a bit of a keen eye for him and then I guess our love blossomed from there. We where both pretty young, first started off as a good friendship and now we’re getting married.

When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
When Ben proposed to me it was on April fools day 2012 and I thought Ben was joking. Although he took me on a very romantic walk up and around Cape Woolamai I knew something was up and that’s when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

Where are you going on your honeymoon?
We are heading off to Bali.

What are your future plans together (e.g. buying a house/starting a family)
Our future plans would be finish our house that we have been renovating, we are almost finished. Then we would like to get around to doing some more travelling as Ben has been working away for the last few years and we have some holidays to catch up on.

phillip island wedding – Chris & Courtney

Chris and Courtney were married on the 3rd March 2012.  Due to the incredibly bad weather on that day they had to be a little flexible and changed the location of their ceremony.  Despite the rain we still managed to capture some beautiful moments for them.  Behind the camera taking the stills was a good friend of ours and great photographer from Bendigo, Cassie Johnson.  I was taking a little bit of video for this wedding so between the two of us we had a great day with an awesome couple. This is their day in the words of the bride…

How did you meet?
Chris and I meet through mutual friends Kerri and Luke on there wedding day. Chris was the best man and I was a Bridesmaid.
