It was a steamy Saturday in September when Jessica Hinchliffe finally tied the knot to Craig Zonca. The couple met working at the ABC and had followed each other around the country and the world ever since.
They were married at St Joseph's Cathedral, Rockhampton, on September 7, 2019.
Jessica wore her mother's 30-year-old wedding gown which was redesigned by Brisbane designer Isabella Longginou.
The couple made sure the day had many connections to family - marrying in the same church Jessica's grandparents Kevin and Betty were married in over 65 years ago as well as holding the reception on the family property Rockdale, Bouldercombe, which has been in Jess' family for more than five generations.
The marquee was on the site where the property's tennis court once stood which was originally built in the 1950s after deciding to move it from the outlying paddocks due to the severe drought - guests would have been dancing in an even bigger dust bowl!
Their close friends Hannah Acfield and Ben Wilson performed Stand by Me at the church and Craig played a set with his old band to get everyone dancing. The reception involved a shared feast highlighting the local produce from around the area.
