Kate & Eben: A Natural Outdoor Wedding in Jervis Bay, NSW
As the lift doors slid open in a hotel in Hong Kong, Eben’s smiling face met Kate’s, and rest they say, is history. As they both work in finance, this wasn’t the first time Kate and Eben had met, but this surprise meeting was the beginning of their beautiful relationship.
The bride: Kate Chapple, 29, finance professional
The groom: Eben Bowditch, 37, finance professional
The date: 12 December
With flowers in hand, Eben arrived home on Christmas Eve and the couple went off to the beach to cool off. When they returned from the beach Kate went to get ready for dinner while Eben sat on the couch and watched the Simpsons, or so I thought, says Kate. When Kate came out there was champagne on ice, under the pretense of simply exchanging Christmas gifts, and then Eben pulled out his guitar from behind the couch to sing a song about wedding proposals that he had written. After his serenade, Eben popped the question, and through her tears of joy, Kate said yes.
