GETTING married and supporting local businesses went hand-in-hand for Nichole Jones of Giles Jones First National Midland and Glen Howard of Just Glass Midvale.
The two business owners said I do at a ceremony and reception attended by 210 guests on April 21.
Having the function at Glen’s property in Gidgegannup allowed the couple to bring in suppliers from the area.
The event marquee and dance floor were supplied by Swan Events Hire and rustic wine barrels by Swan Valley Hire.
Affair with Flair provided the flowers and finishing touches with wine and beer from The Laughing Barrel and Noble Falls Tavern.
The newly-weds first met more than two decades ago.
Nichole, then a property manager with her now business partner Cambell Giles and Glen, then a tenant.
A nervous 21-year-old Nichole was sent to collect overdue rent from “bad-boy image” Glen, admitting it was the most nerve-wracking thing she had ever done.
All’s well that ends well, time went by and personal circumstances reunited the couple five years ago.
With their most exciting years in front of them, the Parkerville and Gidgegannup homeowners are swapping their tractors for a boat on the Mandurah Canals and look forward to travelling in the near-future.
Their children Matthew and Luke Jones, Dane Howard and Emma Mulcahy (Howard) complete the now blended-family.
