It took a few years before the mutual friend, convinced that Mick and Steph would be perfect for each other, was able to get the pair in the same room. “She loves to cook and loves a man with facial hair”, the mutual friend tells him. “He doesn’t have a beard, but I bet he could grown one”, the mutual friend tells her. “You guys would be great together”. Finally, it was at a fateful birthday bash that Mick spotted Steph hovering over the food table and Steph could see that, whilst he may have been sporting an horrendous Freddie Mercury moustache for Movember, the bearded potential was there.
The pair have been inseparable ever since. Steph and Mick share a love of food and cooking, Led Zeppelin, skiing and travel in general. Their weekends tend to involve their regular Saturday morning trip to Eveleigh Markets in Redfern, Sydney, multiple coffees at Campos in Newtown, and wrapping up with some sort of backyard dinner party with their closest friends. So it wouldn’t have been Mick and Steph’s wedding if it hadn’t involved a tight-knit group of family and friends, incredible food and a couple of DJs busting out some classic tunes.
