60908: Australia’s "Farmer Wants A Wife" Star Marries

After sowing the seeds of love in front of an Australian TV audience, Farmer Wants A Wife reality star Chris Newsome and his chosen contestant Kim Tierney reaped the reward for their effort as they were pronounced husband and wife. On the afternoon of May 31, 2008, bridesmaids in scarlet-hued silhouettes walked down the aisle of St. Nicholas Catholic Church ahead of the bride, who held a bouquet of red roses as she made her grand entrance, the sequins embellishing her strapless white wedding dress sparkling in the light as she made her way toward the altar, where the groom, dressed in a pin-striped suit, would present her with a wedding band, the Northern Daily Leader reports.

As the groom slipped the band of white gold on his bride’s finger, no doubt his thoughts returned to Australia Day (January 26), when he and his love climbed to the top of a hill overlooking his New South Wales farm. As the couple surveyed the land that they would share, sunlight danced upon the facets of the 1.2-carat diamond engagement ring purchased from Geelong jeweler Charlie Rose.
