Our Story

Our Story

Our Story begins in 2015, in Mission Beach.  

We met one evening at a local bar, the same beach front business, we would later come to run ourselves.

Mission Beach is the first place we made a home together and will forever hold a special place in both our hearts.

Since we left this small town in 2017 our life has been filled with more adventure and we’ve made more memories than many will experience in a lifetime.

We’ve travelled three continents, owned three ‘homes’ (on wheels) before settling in Yorkshire.

We returned Down Under for Christmas 2022 and to Jo’s delight, Rich finally proposed, on the beautiful beach, where it all started.

We couldn’t think of a more fitting place to say ‘I Do’ and we can’t wait to share this little piece of paradise with all our family and friends.   

“Just another day in paradise!”.
