They first laid eyes on each other while maintaining a fitness regime up and down Castle Hill in Townsville. Jeff either cycling or jogging up the hill and Vicki doing some power walking. Vicki was extremely impressed with his resilience and Jeff was impressed by her smile. After striking up a conversation a romantic dinner followed and before long they were a couple.
Vicki and Jeff chose to be married in Melbourne so they could be surrounded by family and friends and a simple and elegant ceremony took place in The Yarra Room at the Langham Hotel Melbourne. A beautiful atmosphere and a very quintessential view over the Yarra River and beyond to the majestic building of Flinders Street Station.
