Ready to tie the knot on live TV at Hamilton Island
HAMILTON Island will be beamed across the nation’s television screens tomorrow (Friday, September 6), as the host destination for a live television wedding on Channel Seven’s Sunrise breakfast show.
Sunrise and Hamilton Island ran a competition in May offering viewers the chance to win an all-expenses paid wedding on the island, valued at $50k. All the entrants had to do was submit a 60-second video on why they would like to get married on Hamilton Island.
The winning couple from Tasmania are about to exchange vows in their dream location. Brett Fower and Tenae House will be married in front of a national audience, the entire Sunrise crew and 40 close family and friends.
Tomorrow’s entire show, presented by David Koch and new female co-host Samantha Armytage, will also be broadcast live from the island, with the full Sunrise team including Mark Beretta and executive producer Michael Pell all present for the occasion.
Also live on the show will be US pop duo MKTO, who will perform their ARIA top 10 hits Thank You and Classic.
Following the live broadcast, the Sunrise team will enjoy a mini holiday on Hamilton Island along with 130 of their viewers.
A limited number of holiday packages were offered to viewers, providing them with the opportunity to join the Sunrise team for the weekend. The packages, which included accommodation, an exclusive Whitsunday island cruise, a welcome cocktail party and dinner, were so popular they sold out in just one hour.
Hamilton Island’s general manager of marketing, Denny-Lyn Dixon said the island was delighted to partner with Sunrise for this unique opportunity.
