Lleyton Hewitt and Bec Cartwright Marry in Sydney
star Lleyton Hewitt and TV actress Bec Cartwright ("Home
were exchanged inside the Sydney Opera House in Sydney, Australia.
When Cupid's arrow struck Lleyton Hewitt it took the tennis star
just six weeks before realizing that he wanted to spend the rest
of his life with his new lady love. On the night of his loss at
the Australian Open Lleyton knelt down in Melbourne Park, proposing
with a $200,000 round-cut Tiffany engagement ring.
The strings of a harp were plucked to the tune of the bridal march
as Bec Cartwright made her way down a snow white carpet toward
her intended, who stayed by her side during a 30-minute ceremony
which included prayers for the couple and poetry recited by members
of their respective families. At the conclusion of the service,
guests boarded catamarans for a one hour trip across Sydney Harbor
on their way to the reception at the Taronga Zoo.
Carrying a bouquet of pink plumeria, which is referred to as frangipani
in Australia, the bride made a dramatic entrance at the Sydney
Opera House in an Alex Perry creation of Swiss silk georgette
embellished with crystals along the plunging V neckline, which
was supported with delicate spaghetti straps.
Alex Perry utilized
matching material for the bridesmaids dresses, which were strapless
designs bathed in a warm palette of colors ranging from pink to
yellow. Bouquets comprised of white plumeria completed the look.
After spending their first night as Mr. and Mrs. at the Hotel
InterContinental, the newlyweds embarked on a romantic getaway
on Bedarra Island, a resort along the Great Barrier Reef which
offers 16 secluded villas.
