Australian television celebrity Natalie Bassingthwaighte tied the knot on December 04, 2011 in a picture perfect yet intimate ceremony in Melbourne. The groom was her long-time partner Cameron McGlinchey, a former band member of Rogue Traders.
The wedding was attended by around 100 guests and was performed at the Stokehouse, the iconic city restaurant facing the St. Kilda foreshore. The upstairs restaurant was exclusively booked for the purpose. The bride arrived in a white vintage Rolls Royce and was accompanied by the couple’s daughter, Harper Rain Sinclair McGlinchey, born 16 months earlier. Natalie and Cameron had decided to forgo bridesmaids and groomsmen, keeping the tone of the ceremony deeply personal.
Natalie Bassingthwaighte as a bride
A judge in the Australian chapter of X Factor, and a favorite with the television audience, Natalie Bassingthwaighte made a nervous yet joyous bride in her own words. She was stunningly attired in a J’Aton Couture ensemble, while Harper was dressed in blue. The bride was attended by her three sisters.
The Wedding Gown
The floor length one shouldered white wedding gown drew all eyes. J’Aton’s labour of love (a term ascribed by designer Anthony Pittorino), the gown required four people to work on it for extended hours over a fortnight. The sheath like dress with bone support had delicate petals embroidered all over the body and was matched with a tulle veil. It also carried a see through quality adding to the allure. As Jacob Luppino from J’Aton’s design team said, it was classical with a modern twist.
The bride was given a surprise bachelorette party, the Wednesday before by her friends. It included a nude life drawing session, followed by rounds of champagne at the Riva, a Melbourne restaurant.
The couple turned down lucrative offers for exclusive photo rights of their wedding, preferring to keep it private from the media. However, they shared their joy with the waiting groups of fans and well wishers assembled outside the venue.
