Smooth operator: Kim and Mark celebrate rustic wedding

Wedding: 24/10/2015

Leaving your jacket behind at a party could be the easiest way to land a husband!

At least that’s what happened when Kimberley McMullan, 28, met Mark Jordan, 27, through mutual friends seven years ago. “I left my jacket behind and Mark purposely collected it and took it home so he could see me again,” says the Camden, NSW local.

The bride says Mark spent weeks trying to plan a time for them to meet and hand it back. Eventually a time was made and: “To this day he still recalls the entire outfit I wore on the day he took my jacket,” smiles Kimberley.

Five years later, Mark proposed. “While walking through Trafford Square in London whilst a busker was playing Passenger’s ‘Let Her Go’, Mark got down on one knee and asked me to marry him,” smiles Kim.

The pair married at their rustic wedding on October 24, 2014 in front of 115 guests. “I dream that we could relive that day a million times over,” recalls the bride. Their ceremony at Centennial Vineyards in Bowral was followed by a reception at the same location. “We cut out a lot of formalities as they were personally not ‘us’,” says Kim.

“We are complete polar-opposites, but that’s what makes us work,” smiles Kim.

“Take a moment during the reception to stop, take a breathe and take it all in,” is Kim’s advice for other brides.
