Scrubbing in for one of the most exciting days of their lives, Ben and Bronte (née Craven) Edward donned a different kind of uniform as they exchanged vows instead of medical charts on Friday 27 January.   ​​​​​​​

First meeting on night shift in Frankston Hospital Emergency Department, Ben and Bronte formed a strong friendship; hiking and adventuring all that the Mornington Peninsula has to offer on their days off — a friendship, which later blossomed into love.  

Both highly trained and skilled Emergency Nurses, Ben is currently undertaking a Masters of Nursing to become a Nurse Practitioner, whilst Bronte works close by in Resus as a Critical Care Registered Nurse. 

“We’re very proud to be Emergency Nurses and thankful we met each other through work. As much as the pandemic was hard, it brought us together and we’re now thankful our work allows us to travel and spend time together,” says Bronte. 

“We’re both just so happy that we got to marry our best friend, allowing us to go on a lifetime of adventures, side by side,” adds Ben.   

Congratulations to the happy couple, who are currently relaxing on the Cook Islands after a busy few years of studying, working through a pandemic and all the while planning a wedding.
