Melissa Arnold (née Cox) ('09) married James Arnold on 2 February 2013. Both Ceremony and Reception were held at Ayers House. Together since 2007, Melissa and James were engaged in September 2011. They went on to honeymoon in Byron Bay.

The wedding had a true Westminster feel with many Old Scholars playing a role in the day. Tahlia Winsor ('09) was Melissa's Maid of Honour. Melissa's sister-in-law Melissa Cox (née Kell) ('05) was a bridesmaid alongside Annabel MacDonald ('09) and James' sister Becky. Melissa's Mum Vicki is also an Old Scholar from the Class of 1983.

Geoff Cox ('04) was a groomsman alongside Best Man Mitchell Ridgway, Jason Oliver and Sean McLaughlin. Adam Spratt ('04) was the Master of Ceremonies, and Sarah Elvin ('09) and Kendra Pratt ('09) were both ushers. The wedding cake was made by Tamzin Pascoe ('04) and the red vintage Plymouth that Melissa and James used as their wedding car is owned by Old Scholar Lachlan MacDonald ('05). 

Melissa has now completed her Bachelor of Nursing, and is working as a Registered Nurse at Calvary North Adelaide.

Congratulations Melissa and James! The Westminster Community wishes you well in your future together.
