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.
