Karl shows wedding eve emotion
KARL Stefanovic was visibly emotional at the rehearsal for his wedding, to be held this afternoon at the exclusive One & Only Palmilla resort in Cabo, Mexico.
The intimate evening wedding runthrough was attended by Stefanovic and bride Jasmine Yarbrough’s families and the wedding party, including Pete and
Tom Stefanovic, motor legend Mick
Doohan and Ben Tilley.
While some of Yarbrough’s bridesmaids dressed for the dry run, her surf lifesaver dad, Bobby, lived up to his reputation as a true Queenslander wearing thongs and a pair of Speedos that had a picture of his future son-in-law’s face.
Stefanovic was visibly overcome with emotion as he shared the occasion with his three children, River, 12, Ava, 13, and
“Having his three kids here with him means the absolute world to Karl,” a friend said.
The pair will marry this afternoon with Stefanovic’s sister Elisa Pointon the celebrant at the property’s picturesque chapel, before a reception on site.
The guest list of about 200 includes former foreign minister Julie Bishop, who hit the beach with long-time partner property developer David Panton two hours after flying in from Los Angeles.
Stefanovic and Yarbrough spent yesterday out of sight but Ms Bishop and Mr Panton frolicked in the sand at the resort.
Mr Panton, 57, also took a dip in the ocean while Ms Bishop, 62, watched on.
Ms Bishop became the wedding’s biggest name after Stefanovic’s close mate, billionaire James Packer, had to cancel his trip to spend time with his mother on her birthday.
Former athlete Grant Kenny, model Montana Cox, British fashionista Louise Roe, entertainment reporter Richard
Wilkins and skateboarder Corbin Harris have flown in for the wedding.
Alan Jones and Kyle Sandilands were not able to make it.
