Lucy & Jesse

Jesse Davies and Lucy Eakins

The couple, who met at a church camp in 2015, were holidaying at Port Rickaby with Lucy’s family over the March long weekend.
“Jesse took me for a walk and proposed on the sand on a secluded beach – it was just the two of us,” Lucy says.
“I cried my heart out, but it was so beautiful.”
Jesse, from Hartley, and Lucy, who grew up at Mt Barker, were married at Stoney Creek Estate near Strathalbyn on January 12, 2024.
Guests were treated to wood oven pizzas and a grazing table, while drinks were served from a Kombi Keg.
Lucy’s highlight of the day were the “heartfelt” and love-filled speeches.
“It was an intimate wedding of around 90 people and it was a perfect day,” she says.
“A little warm for the ceremony, but the night was the perfect summer night.”
