Jackie O’s Big Fat Gypsy Wedding at Curzon Hall Sydney this morning was a live extravaganza that saw Jackie and husband Lee renew their vows in front of celebrant Carol Provan, the mayor of the Sutherland Shire.
The glowing bride, in purposefully excessive fake tan, and her three gypsy bridesmaids, producers Gemma O’Neill, Kim Czosnek, and 2Day FM newsreader Emma Duxbury, were a vision in hot and pale pink taffeta.
Best man Kyle was matching with Jackie’s husband Lee in white suits.
Jackie arrived via horse and carriage and her fairytale dress. The stilettos and high to the sky blinged out tiara were a challenge which saw her take a tumble down the aisle.
The bride and groom danced their first dance to Barry Manilow’s Copacabana and Jackie’s dress lit up for the occasion.
Kyle & Jackie O’s Big Fat Gypsy wedding was in honour of Foxtel’s LifeStyle YOU television series Big Fat Gypsy Weddings. All wedding gifts were donations to the McGrath foundation via www.2DayFM.com.au
LifeStyle Channels General Manager Duane Hatherly said:
“Big Fat Gypsy Weddings is LifeStyle YOU’s highest rating program and we couldn’t have thought of a better way to celebrate than a spectacular nuptial event. Kyle and Jackie O Show’s Big Fat Gypsy Wedding has blown us away with Jackie O taking gypsy-fever to an all-time high. She looked absolutely stunning, gypsy style, in endless meters of bling covered fabric complete with a sparkling skyscraper tiara. And even managed to make a potentially drastic fall down the aisle look fabulously graceful! Lee, you are one lucky man.”
Here’s the wedding video.
The second series of Big Fat Gypsy Weddings paints a visually arresting portrait of the lives of gypsies and travellers in Britain today. The series explores the remarkable rituals, traditions and beliefs held by this minority group.
Big Fat Gypsy Weddings screens Mondays at 9.30pm on Foxtel’s Lifestyle YOU channel.
