Nothing could keep happy couple apart
NOT even a category four cyclone could stand in the way of high school sweethearts Bhrett Davies and Jamie Bell tying the knot.
The couple was the first to have their wedding reception at Abell Point Marina’s Lure function centre since Cyclone Debbie hit the Whitsundays on March 28.
“Everything fell into place and we had a great day,” Bhrett said.
The Proserpine locals had planned the wedding at Lure for about a year and the only thing that would have forced them to postpone the biggest day of their lives was their guests not finding local accommodation.
At the last minute they managed to house their outof-state guests at Heart Hotel in Airlie Beach.
“The lady Jessica at the Heart Hotel saved the day,” Bhrett said.
Bhrett said following through with the wedding reception at Lure was a way of moving forward and putting the devastating effects of Cyclone Debbie behind them.
“It almost looked like there had not been a cyclone at Lure,” she said. “Any damage they had got had been fixed. Apart from the sad palm trees out the front everything was really lovely.
“They had everything organised and it was just a really, really nice night.
“Everyone was really pleased we had the reception on the date we had planned.”
The couple has been dating since Year 11 at Proserpine High School and look forward to a long and happy marriage.
BIG DAY: Bhrett and Jamie were the first couple to have their reception at Lure since Cyclone Debbie.
