Lisa and Jordan met the old-fashioned way, sparking up a conversation while grocery shopping at their local supermarket. Goes to show you never know where you’re going to meet your future husband or wife! When their first date didn’t go as well as planned, with Jordan a little ‘under the weather’, he was pleasantly surprised when Lisa accepted his invitation for a second date, “I could tell Jordan was severely hung over, lucky he was still very charming” Lisa laughed.
A few years later, one Saturday evening, Jordan took his family and unsuspecting girlfriend for a casual dinner–nothing out of the ordinary for the family-oriented couple. While sharing a delicious dessert and thanking their family for joining them, Jordan unexpectedly asked Lisa to marry him, “it was a very special moment having our family there with us – and I wasn’t expecting it at all”, explained Lisa.
Lisa and Jordan’s big day finally arrived, Saturday 1st November 2014. The lavish Bell City Gardens was the couples’ first choice for their wedding ceremony – however with inclement weather on the way, the couple moved their ceremony into the Bell City Marquee at the last minute. Styled with chic black draping, opulent chandeliers and elegant white and grey details, the Bell City Marquee wowed the couple and their closest friends and family.
Jordan entered the wedding ceremony playing the bagpipes and traditionally dressed in his Scottish kilt, greeting family and friends before taking his place at the end of the aisle. Jordan’s face lit up as Lisa entered the Bell City Marquee, wearing her gorgeous Sophia Tolli mermaid gown with a sweetheart neckline and crystal embellishments.
After utilising the Bell City Rooftop as a backdrop for their wedding photography, Lisa and Jordan made their grand entrance to the Bell City Ballroom. Friends and family were served an entree of pumpkin and almond tortellini or white fish croquettes, followed by eye fillet with smoked potato mash alternating with twice cooked chicken breast on sweet potato and fetta mash. “The food at our wedding was amazing! Four months later and we are still receiving compliments from our friends and family”.
After an unforgettable day filled with love and all things fun, Lisa and Jordan later relaxed in their luxurious Bell City Executive Suite, with their own private balcony, spa bath and chocolate dipped strawberries.
“We were absolutely thrilled with having our wedding at Bell City. The service on the day was impeccable, all of the staff were incredibly attentive during both our ceremony and reception – we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day” the couple explained.
