And i stood up and turned around and he was on one knee with a ring box in hand! he asked me to marry him and I said yes immediately about a hundred times!

    After saying a couple of nights at our favorite place to stay in Apollo Bay – Chris’ Beacon Point James ran off at breaky to grab something from the room and came back with another surprise which when i opened i could not believe!

The Cape Kitchen Wedding – Dale & Jordan

Dale and Jordon’s big day was held at the cape kitchen wedding venue on Phillip Island.  Although the weather didn’t do its part, Dale and Jordan and their guests appeared to have a fabulous time.  Here are some words from the bride and groom about their wedding day, their past and their hopes for their future together.

Q. When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
A. Dale and I are high school sweet hearts, meeting when we were 14 years old at a mutual friends party. We instantly connected, and have been pretty much inseparable ever since. We have been through so much together in the last 12 years, and it has made us stronger than ever. We often laugh saying we have been together for so long that we don’t actually remember a life without each other in it.
Q. When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
A. Dale surprised me with a weekend away, and all he told me was to pack my bags with something nice to wear to go out in, my bathers and my gym gear. Needless to say I was very confused with the three different instructions as I could not figure out if we were going camping, to the hot springs, to the city or somewhere completely different!
We ended up driving to the Langham in Melbourne’s CBD (a hotel I had always wanted to go to), with an amazing corner Club King room with a river view. I was so overwhelmed with excitement!
We spent the afternoon drinking cocktails and chatting, and then got ready to go out for another surprise. Once I was ready, Dale asked me to close my eyes, got on one knee and proposed to me over looking the beautiful city lights and Yarra River. It was the best moment of my life!
Q. Where are you going on your honeymoon?
A. We haven’t booked our honeymoon yet, but are hoping to go to America in our winter next year. It is somewhere we have both always wanted to go and see, so it was a pretty easy decision.
Q. What are your future plans together (e.g. buying a house/starting a family)
A. We have been living in our own home for nearly three years now, so we are looking forward to starting a family in our future as Mr and Mrs Harvey.
Q. Where is your ceremony and reception being held and why did you choose these venues?
A. The ceremony and reception is being held at ‘The Cape Kitchen‘ in Phillip Island.
We had always wanted to get married on the beach, and Phillip Island is like a second home to us. We have been holidaying there every Summer since we can remember, and my parents recently retired down there, with Dale’s planning on making the move there in the close future.
We chose The Cape Kitchen as a wedding on the beach would not have been easy to access for our grandparents and older relatives, and the view from the clifftop is the next best thing.
The decor and over all feel at The Cape Kitchen also fitted our vision for our wedding perfectly, and no where could compete with the breath taking views.
Q. What does your wedding dress look like? Please give a detailed description and also include any accessories including jewellery and shoes.
A. My wedding dress is the ‘Lottie’ dress from the Couture Collection by Melbourne designer Jane Hill. This dress had been my dream dress for many years, and I feel so lucky to have been able to wear it on our special day. It is a stunning backless dress with oyster silk underlay and white lace detailing.
I was honored to wear the pearls my Nana wore on her wedding day as a young woman many years ago, along with my engagement ring, and as my ‘something old’ I wore a beautiful pair of Mimco earrings that I got given for as a bridesmaid gift from one of my bridesmaids own wedding.
Q. Do you have a Theme or style to your wedding? And if so, what is it?
A. Sam Bennett from ‘The Little Sparrow Events‘ helped us create our vision of a Rustic Romantic/Cocktail style. We wanted a really natural, soft look with wooden logs, twine balls, fairy lights and so on. She was so supportive and organised through the whole lead up.
Q. Hair & Makeup – please describe what your hair and makeup is like and who the suppliers are.
A. The beautiful Samantha, owner of Home of Hair By Sam Marsden, created long, beachy waves for the special day. The talented Adele, owner of Adele Sarah Beauty, will by doing a bronzed, natural look with the make up.
Q. Who is the person conducting your service? (celebrant, minister, priest etc).
A. Paw Lewis, from Phillip Island Ceremonies
Q. Florist – what are your flowers like & who is the supplier?
A. Our florist is Bec Newman, owner of the ‘Little Flower Shed’. I wanted a mix of white seasonal flowers, with lots of greenery, and a big, unstructured bouquet. Bec really helped me achieve the perfect look to complement the styling of the room.
Along with the bouquet I have a flower crown, along with gyp bouquets for the bridesmaids, and gyp pinned through the flower girl, and bridesmaids hair.
There are rio stands with flowers and greenery to go alongside the DJ, table pieces, and the most incredible arbour filled with flowers for the ceremony outside.
Q. Wedding Favours & Cake – what are they like and who is the supplier?
A. My amazing , supportive wedding planner/mum is the one who created the wedding favours – They are little natural looking ‘love’ boxes filled with gourmet chocoltates. Our cake is a three tier naked cake, made by Melva (sourced through Bec Newman from the Little Flower Shed), decorated with flowers wrapping around the cake, and on a wooden log board.
Q. Transport – what mode of transport did you choose and who was the supplier?
A. The boys are going in black Classic 57 Chev’s and the girls in a white Jaguar.
Q. Food & Drink – what are they like and who is the supplier if not venue?
A. We are having a cocktail themed wedding, with the menu created and supplied from The Cape Kitchen. We are having a mixture of Purple Hen wine’s, along with plenty of beer and Espresso Martini’s.
