Introducing Mr and Mrs James… Ben and Jess wed on the 27th of April 2018 at the Marina View Function Centre. Jess looked stunning in a Stella York, ivory fit and flare satin dress. It was the very first dress that she tried on! The bridesmaids wore a soft blush colour dress from designer Zaliea. The groomsmen wore a 3 piece navy suit from Rundles, Newcastle. Ben said he could not pick a favourite part from the day as it was all so special, but said that seeing Jess in her dress after months of wondering what it could be like was very special to him and that his imagination didn’t do her justice! For Jess, having her kids there to be part of the day and the vows that they both shared with them as part of the ceremony was extremely special to her as it was not just her getting married to the man of her dreams but it was the moment they officially became a family. The ceremony which was created completely from scratch made them laugh, cry and gave them a ceremony uniquely for them. The whole day captured their pure love for each other. The newlyweds then jetted off to Fiji for 12 days spending the first half of their trip on Mololo Island at the adults only Tropica Island Resort, snorkeling, relaxing and lapping up the sun in a private pool bure. The last stretch of their holiday was spent on the Mainland at the Marriot in Momi Bay doing Zip Lining and watching the sunset over the ocean from the Infinity Pool sipping cocktails! Congratulations to the newlyweds, Whitakers wish you forever happiness.
