Love on the dancefloor: School disco sparks Hunter Valley wedding

Wedding: 19/09/2015

Posted by Kellie | 15 December, 2015

Rebecca Ford and Mitchell Bayley fell in love at a school disco at just 15 years old.

Even though they knew it was meant to be then, a few years later, at Sydney’s Royal Easter Show, Rebecca got confirmation from a psychic. “I didn’t believe in psychics or palm readers,” she says. “[But] she told me that I was blessed to have such as strong, tall, dark and handsome man in my life. That our souls were connected in a previous life, would be connected through this life and follow into the afterlife still as one.”

Taking those words with them to the altar, Rebecca and Mitchell, from Singleton, NSW, celebrated their Hunter Valley wedding on September 19, 2015 at Cypress Lakes Resort. “Ten years and 10 days since our relationship began, we started our next adventure as husband and wife,” smiles Rebecca. “We exchanged personal vows, holding back the emotion, and as we said ‘I do’ the rain began to fall. We couldn’t have been more blessed with luck.”

The couple, now both 25, began their lives as newlyweds with a ‘kicker’ of a honeymoon. “Becoming the wife of a rugby fan, it was only fitting we attended the Rugby World Cup in England for our honeymoon, before travelling to Munich, Rome, Santorini and Dubai,” says Rebecca.
