Melissa and Daniel’s beach wedding a ‘no-brainer’ after how they met


At just 14, Daniel and Melissa became a couple after meeting at school camp by the beach.

“We share similar values and interests and life goals and aspirations. The beach is one of them,” says Melissa, now 28. “We are both chilled out, easy going, fun loving people.” That meant they wanted their wedding day to be relaxed, fun and memorable.

“After being proposed to on the beach, it was a no-brainer then to have a beach wedding where we could be us,” explains the bride. “Daniel wearing shorts, me not having to wear shoes, the sun shining and the waves crashing. “

They married at their beach wedding on January 18, 2020 at Brighton Savoy in Victoria. “From umbrellas nearly flying off, to getting my veil hooked on the bush and ripping out my hair, that did not stop my smile from ear to ear,” laughs Melissa.
