A couple have said I do in the Top End before thousands of viewers in what may be the television wedding of the year.
Tying the knot at picturesque Pee Wee's at the Point, Lauren Marsh and Steve Wadey's special day followed months of national coverage and was aired on Nine Network's Today show, on Monday.
Mr Wadey, a salesman for Coca-Cola and Ms Marsh, who works at a local lettuce farm doing data entry, live in East Gippsland, Victoria.
But had the surprise of their lives when they were announced winners of the Top End Wedding competition and flown to the outback for their special day - everything was taken care of down to the white dress and the lavish cake.
The competition, a partnership between the NT Government and the Nine Network, is leveraging the feature film Top End Wedding, which was released in cinemas last Thursday.
Leading up to the wedding, the couple visited Katherine, where Mr Wadey's mother works as a teacher and his brother, Pat, and sister-in-law, Trish, both work for Nitmiluk Tours.
According to the loved-up couple the day went off without a hitch, with the threat of rain from the previous few days disappearing leaving clear blue skies.
"I was so nervous in the lead up, and pretty emotional, but as soon as I saw Lauren waiting it just all went away and I just knew I was marrying the woman of my dreams," Mr Wadey said.
"I think you're crazy not to get married in the NT.
"We've had some of the best experiences up here, from the bucks to all the time with our friends and family dining out in Darwin, right through to here, this fantastic venue with this beautiful backdrop, it's absolutely sensational."
The day was a flurry of excitement with the addition of camera crews filming the spectacle and thousands of eyes awaiting the 'I do' moment.
"I wasn't thinking about TV, the people at home or anything else ... you're just focusing on that one person at the end of the aisle," the bride said.
The couple met two years ago at a family wedding and were engaged not too soon after.
