Ben and Jenny chose Bella Vista Function Centre to host their wedding and reception. It was a wonderful venue which has an interesting history within the Newcastle region.
Upon investigation, I found out the mansion Bella Vista was built as a residence in 1919 for the manager of Newcastle BHP Steel Works, David Baker. The American Pittsburgh steel expert had been lured to Australia by BHP in 1912 to install and eventually manage Australia’s first steel making plant.
