Jess and Rohan worked at the same place, but on different rosters. After being thrown together on an overtime shift, romance blossomed.
Canapés and champagne were brought out to the deck and kick-started the celebration following the ceremony. The reception, at Restaurant Cuvee, Hunter Valley, was a relaxed dinner featuring roasted pork belly and crispy skinned salmon. The excellent service was appreciated by all.
Guests travelled from interstate and overseas, staying at Chateau Elan, Mercure Resort, Hunter Valley Gardens, Potters Hotel Brewery Resort, Leisure Inn Hotels & Cumberland Motor Inn. “We had a large family breakfast the morning after the wedding which was a great way to catch up with everyone before we headed off on our honeymoon. It was a continuation of the celebrations and felt like it extended the wedding to more than just one day.”
