Colleen and Omar’s Belle Mer Island House Wedding

November 13, 2015

By Mariah Ashley

I beautiful blue eyed tennis sensation locked eyes with a handsome well dressed cricket player across a crowded silent disco. They fell in LOVE and here we are at their Belle Mer Island House Wedding.

Guess which player this one is?

Omar gifting cufflinks to his best mates. Omar is from Australia, so that’s why these guys are mates, not pals or buddies, but either way they are good friends.

Warning! Gratuitous tennis and cricket puns ahead!

Omar and Colleen had headphones on at the silent disco, but I guess not much needed to be said once they spotted each other, it was a match.

Omar is a very confident guy, that’s a good thing, if he had a case of the Yips he might never have won the lovely maiden. As it is, Omar is an All-rounder so naturally he bowled her over.

Colleen and Omar had a first look at the Newport Marriott before heading to the Elms Mansion for their formal photos.

The Elms Mansion is an absolutely stunning property and perfect for formal portraits.

See photo below.

The day was pretty much a comedy show from the very start… not sure who was the funniest but many many laughs were had.

This might be my favorite spot at The Elms, these incredible trees form a canopy that feels like being indoors.
