0102707: Wedding of Rugby Captain Darren Lockyer

Standing on the steps of the Ithaca Presbyterian Church in Red Hill, Queensland, Australia on October 27, 2007, Loren Pollock’s diaphanous veil waved in the wind as she posed for photos alongside her love of the past three years, Brisbane Broncos captain Darren Lockyer. Earlier in the afternoon, bridesmaids in silver, knee-length dresses, the fabric mirroring that of the groom’s tie, had walked down the aisle ahead of the bride, who made her grand entrance in a strapless, Grecian-inspired gown accented with a bejeweled belt by designers Scanlan & Theodore. Australian website reported that during the 20-minute ceremony, the hauntingly beautiful lyrics from The Phantom of The Opera and the joyous refrain of a song that expressed the couple’s feelings on their special day– The Beatles’ “All You Need Is Love”– echoed inside the house of worship as the couple exchanged vows.

Exiting the chapel, just like over 250 newlyweds who have said “I do” inside Ithaca Presbyterian Church over the past two decades, the couple were greeted with a rainfall of red and white rose petals, which seemed to christen their new life together as they kissed for the first time as husband and wife.
