Jaymie-Lee and Matt’s beach garden wedding in Port Stephens

Wedding: 25/03/2017

Posted by Roya | 19 July, 2017

Call it supermarket love, Jaymie-Lee Janes was a check-out chick and Matthew Glanville the produce guy at Woolworths when they first met.

Their love story didn’t begin until years later however, when Jaymie-Lee, 23, refereed her first soccer game where Matt, 24, was the coach. “My dad met Matt and his friend on the sideline and I didn’t hear the end of it all week – ‘How those two young men were so down-to-earth and respectful,'” recalls Jaymie-Lee. “Matt and I started to talk from that day on and after a few months we were inseparable.”

Matt orchestrated an incredibly romantic proposal to Jaymie-Lee. When the two were set to holiday in Fiji, he insisted it would be far more fun if both their families also came along. One morning, after walk along the beach with Jaymie-Lee’s parents, Jaymie-Lee followed Matt into their room to find a message written on the bed with flowers that read ‘Will you marry me, Jaymie-Lee?’ And next to the bed was Matt, holding an engagement ring.

On March 25, 2017 the pair said ‘I do’ among 100 family and friends at their beach garden wedding at their favourite holiday location, Port Stephens in NSW.

“We invited our most precious family and friends to our special day,” recalls Jaymie-Lee. “We felt so honoured to have so many people there to celebrate our love.”

Jaymie-Lee advises couples embarking on the same journey “not to stress too many small details.” She says, “On the big day, you will be so overwhelmed by emotions and happiness you will not even notice if something doesn’t go to plan. Just take in every moment as it feels like the fastest day you’ve ever lived!”
