LUCY SUMMERTON & JAMES FECHNER
MARRIED AT BROOKLYN FARM, MYPONGA BEACH
DECEMBER 9, 2017
A family dinner for Lucy’s birthday at her mum’s house turned into a double celebration when James took her into the garden, held her hands and surprised her with a marriage proposal.
James thought this was the perfect place to propose because the garden was one of her dad’s favourite places and after he passed away in 2011, he felt that being in the garden Lucy’s dad would be with them and the family too.
The happy couple who met six and half years ago through James’ sister and Lucy’s friend were married by Verity Slee at Brooklyn Farm, Myponga Beach on December 9.
The venue set the theme for the ceremony and the reception because of its natural Australian beauty with the stunning weatherboard house, old stone barn, enormous gum trees and the rolling hills that meet the beach.
A lot of fun was had for their 115 guests at the reception when a version of pass the parcel was played which involved hilarious dance moves, songs and jokes.
For her special day Lucy wore a Caleche Bridal two-piece, long silk skirt with lace top and long tulle veil.
Her bridesmaids were Maddy Rochau, Rachel Rice and Kristi McDonald while the groom’s attendants were Taylor Chinner, Matthew Kroschel, Jordan Kuchel and Joel Robins.
Lucy and James said, “The help from their family and friends to make their special day truly memorable was overwhelming and they felt very loved.”
Lucy is the daughter of Vicki and the late Shannon Summerton of Nuriootpa and James is the son of Sharon and Philip Fechner of Tanunda.
