On Saturday, April 1, 2017, Australian Today show presenter Sylvia Jeffreys walked down the aisle to wed journalist Peter Stefanovic. They married in front of friends and family at the luxury Ooralba estate, a privately-owned architecturally modern vacation home and event space in Barengarry, New South Wales, that currently rents for $6,500 per night. It’s two hours south of Sydney in the picturesque Kangaroo Valley, nestled among nearby olive vineyards. They were married outside under a floral arch, with paparrazzi helicopters buzzing overhead for a shot.
Jeffreys, 30, wore a custom princess cut gown with tiered skirt and low-cut neckline by Sydney-based designer Rebecca Vallance, topped with a cathedral-style veil for the ceremony. Her bridesmaids were dressed in figure-skimming pale beige off-shoulder gowns. The fun-loving couple’s friends and family took over Instagram on the day, sharing countless shots of the happy celebration.
Jeffreys cohost on Today, Karl Stefanovic, is also the groom’s brother, and in his role as groomsman reportedly gave a rousing roast of his younger brother – to the tune of Oasis’ “Champagne Supernova” – that had the couple’s 160 guests in stitches. Peter and Karl’s older brother, Tom, served as a second groomsman.
The night before the wedding, guests convened at The Friendly Inn bar and grill in Kangaroo Valley for a private celebration with the couple. Celebrity friends including Holly Valance, and Jeffreys’ Today show copresenter Richard Wilkins, were in attendance. On Sunday, the couple treated guests to a post-wedding champagne brunch, picnic-style, wth pastries, fresh fruit, and cheese platters.
This is the first marriage for both. They first met in 2014 inside the Channel Nine parking lot in Sydney, and told wedding guests they decided “[to take] it from there.”
