Trenavin Chapel Wedding – Chantelle & Ben

Chantelle & Ben’s wedding was held on 5th October 2014 at Trenavin Chapel.  Below are some words from the bride as to how the couple met and about their wedding day.

When and how did you meet? And what were your first thoughts?
Ben and I first meet a bit over 9 years ago at the local football netball club. I (Chantelle) used to run water when Ben played footy and got a bit of a keen eye for him and then I guess our love blossomed from there. We where both pretty young, first started off as a good friendship and now we’re getting married.

When and how did the proposal take place and how did you feel?
When Ben proposed to me it was on April fools day 2012 and I thought Ben was joking. Although he took me on a very romantic walk up and around Cape Woolamai I knew something was up and that’s when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

Where are you going on your honeymoon?
We are heading off to Bali.

What are your future plans together (e.g. buying a house/starting a family)
Our future plans would be finish our house that we have been renovating, we are almost finished. Then we would like to get around to doing some more travelling as Ben has been working away for the last few years and we have some holidays to catch up on.
