Q. When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
A. We met in April 2012 in Egypt while travelling. I was currently working/living in London at the time whereas Mark was in Mornington. There was an instant connection and a mutual comfortable feeling between the two of us from the very beginning.

Jewellery will include a pearl/crystal bracelet with diamond earrings. Shoes are vanilla satin open toe heels from Alan Pinkus with swarovski crystals added on by my mum.

Dalywaters Rose Farm – Marc & Jess

Marc and Jess’s mornington peninsula wedding was held on Friday 29th November 2013. The couple held their ceremony at the Dalywaters Rose Farm and their reception at Mornington Peninsula Golf Club.
How and when did you meet?
We met just over 7 years ago at a local football function, we both instantly liked each other, we have similar sense of humour so got along really well.
When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
Marc proposed on Christmas Eve 2012. It was very understated, which was perfect for us. We watched our traditional Christmas movie “elf” every year and when the credits rolled on playing my all time favourite Xmas song Marc got up and came back to the couch where I was lying, he got down on one knee and popped the question. I was in shock (7 years together, I thought it was never going to happen) and I was so extremely over the moon happy!!
Where are you going on your honeymoon?
We are heading over to the states in March for 6 weeks.
What are your future plans together?
Our future plans are to buy a second house together, travelling and eventually starting a family.
Where is your ceremony and reception being held and why did you choose these venues?
Ceremony: Dalywaters Rose Farm in Mornington, Reception: Mornington golf club.
I absolutely fell in love with Dalywaters the minute we saw it, it just “spoke to me” The golf club is also really lovely and I got a great feeling from the staff as soon as we arrived, it all just worked.
What does your wedding dress look like?
My dress is a ‘mermaid’ style with lace on the bodice, and an extravagant tule layered skirt. I am wearing a veil and some beautiful antique inspired chandelier ear rings. I also have a beautiful tennis bracelet that my mum has brought for me. My flowers are beautiful but I’m really sorry I can’t remember what they are called. I do know there are some amazing peonies in there.
What is the Theme or style of your wedding?
The wedding doesn’t have an exact theme, it’s romantic, rustic, vintage inspired. Nothing specific.
Hair & make up:
Hair is being done by my hairdresser/friend Meg Horsborough, she is doing a soft low bun. Make up is by Andrea at ‘Makeup with me‘
Cake & Wedding Favours:
No cake, we are having a Macaroon tower made by a family friend.
My amazing mum has made the wedding favours, handmade candles for each guest, they smell delicious; creme brûlée and strawberry champagne scents.
Invitations & stationary:
Lesley from ‘Little bits‘ made our invitations, using the same colours I made the place cards for guests with one of my bridesmaids. We also made the booklets for the ceremony and used the same ‘cartoon picture’ my parents had on their wedding invites over 35 years ago. They were really special to me.
Food & drink: Food and drink is all prepared by the golf club. We are having an extended canapé time than usual and cutting out the entree part of the night, to ensure we have some more casual relaxed time with our guests, the mains are Roasted eye fillet with mash potato (my fav) sautéed spinach and red wine jus and Baked chicken breast with a potato gratin, sautéed spinach and white wine tarragon sauce.

Wedding Favours & Cake
I made my own wedding cake and instead of favours we are donating the money we would have spent to one of two charities nominated by guests. Guests are given a ping pong ball in a little box, and they put the ping pong ball in one of two big labelled glass vases depending on which charity they believe we should donate to!
