Mel and Ben walked into their favourite little wine bar and were greeted by a nice waiter guy who recognises them straight away
Waiter - You guys look great, why are you dressed up?
Mel - We are going to a wedding
Waiter - Great, I'll get you a winelist.
About 20 minutes later the waiter comes back and congratulates Mel and Ben because he just saw them get married in the winebar!
So as explained earlier, Mel and Ben didn't want the big fuss of a wedding. So one Friday afternoon they headed down to Harry and Frankie in Port Melbourne (Which is awesome BTW), met up with Melissa from The Ceremony Store and eloped. They were accompanied by a couple of glasses of sparkling, the bar manager and me. It's so special to be asked to witness the marriage and even get into a couple of photos.
A short simple to the point ceremony that was still filled with laughs and massive smiles from all of us. Then they checked their phones... and the cards had arrived. Lots of love from family ensued, the friends would have to wait a little longer... they were heading down to the bar to have a drink for Mel's birthday or so they thought!
Big hugs Mel and Ben!
