P etra Guse and George Morrissey are getting hitched on the same day as Meghan and Harry, but the WA couple couldn’t give a toss about the rival nuptials!
“When I first heard Harry and Meghan had chosen May 19 I thought, ‘Ohhh, that’s our day,’” says Petra of the date chosen by her and her FIFO worker fiance.
But, she says, their outback wedding will be the “polar opposite of the royals”.
Petra and 31-year-old George’s guests will travel 650km north of Perth to the remote Meeline Station to “rough it”. There’s no phone reception or television at the station in the heart of red-dust country, either. “Everything’s pretty low-key for us,” says vet Petra, 33.
“I’m guessing Harry and Meghan won’t be asking their guests to bring a swag and sleep outside afterwards like we are!”
