Early promise leads to Paige and Jake’s romantic wedding

Wedding: 04/10/2015

Posted by Kate | 21 December, 2015

Early on in their relationship, Jake Swalue told Paige Grocke that in three years he would pop the question.

Paige, 24, laughed it off but, true to his word, three years and 29 days later Jake, 26, got down on one knee.

The South Australian hairstylist and fisherman, from Port Lincoln, were visiting Jake’s family in Croatia, at his baba’s (grandmother’s) house right on the water. After a swim Paige was dozing off when she heard Jake clear his throat. “I opened my eyes… there he was with the most beautiful ring!” she smiles.

“When I asked, ‘Why like this?’ he replied: ‘One day this house could be ours and I can’t imagine anything better in years to come, when we sit on this exact balcony with our children, that I can say this is where I proposed to your mum,'” Paige recalls.

The couple returned to Port Lincoln for a truly romantic wedding, which was celebrated at Tanonga Eco Lodges in a gorgeous outdoor ceremony on October 4, 2014. One hundred and eighty-five guests joined the couple and headed to the reception celebrations at The Port Lincoln Hotel, which was draped in flowers and fairy lights for the occasion.

“The wedding day was nothing short of amazing,” Paige says.

“It was full of emotion, so much love, laughter and we both felt completely at ease.”
