Simon & Melanie first crossed paths in 2002 in Wooli when Simon was trying to catch fish, not girls! Unfortunately, it would be another 9 long years before he would have the chance to dangle his bait again! It was at the Shoal Bay Country Club where he was officially introduced through a mutual friend.
Mel had already fast forwarded to the white picket fence, kids at her feet and baking cupcakes! Simon was blown away by this smoking hot blonde and thought he was punching way above his weight! ?
The night was on a roll and before it was over numbers were exchanged and a first date lined up. Simon wooed Mel with dinner at Marcos Italian restaurant but the real deal was sealed for her when she tasted his cooking and from then on there was no looking back!
