Fast forward to last Friday and it was wedding bells for Jenna and Nathanial Menzie, the man she’d met by chance in a Tassie cargo bar back in 2011.

“Nathanial was there with his brother Isaac for Friday night drinks,” Jenna said.

Jenna was struggling to get to the bar to order a birthday cocktail when she decided to ask Nathanial to order the drinks for her.

They chatted for a while and the boys eventually joined Jenna and her friends.

Jenna recalls “At first, I wasn’t that interested but Nathanial was persistent, even putting his number into my phone without me realising.”

When she got home, he had messaged her and the rest, and they say, is history.

Nathanial and Jenna became engaged last year while on a driving holiday along Victoria’s Great Ocean Road.

Nathanial popped the question and produced the ring at the Silver Band Falls.

When it came to the wedding, there really wasn’t any choice.

The couple chose Bennetts Beach for their wedding ceremony and as they now run Mumm’s Restaurant they had the perfect place for a reception.

The happy couple shared their wedding night with a hundred close family and friends.

But there’s no honeymoon just yet.

“It’s school holidays so we’re too busy with the restaurant,” Jenna said.

“But it will happen, just a bit later.”

  1. Congratulations to the couple! Lakeside weddings are really beautiful. We found a lakeside wedding venue at IBride.com but there are other venues that are just as charming, beachside, orchards. So we’re still looking. 🙂
