Sarah O'Hare & Lachlan Murdoch

I have kept these magazine clippings for years, and have scoured the internet to find them again, but to no avail. So please excuse the poor quality of the images, but I just had to share this glamorous, elegant wedding with you.

It was Australia's wedding of the decade when Lachlan Murdoch, son of billionaire media magnate Rupert Murdoch, married Australian supermodel Sarah O'Hare, 26, in 1999.

The intimate wedding, held at the family's New South Wales estate, was veiled in secrecy, with only 100 close friends and family invited. After exchanging vows, in a chapel that was specially constructed for the day, the happy couple shared champagne cocktails with their guests and enjoyed a spectacular sunset fireworks display.

Sarah O'Hare and Lachlan Murdoch exchanged vows in a specially constructed outdoor chapel
at the Murdoch's riverside estate, before 100 close family and friends.

Carrying a bouquet of old-fashioned roses, Sarah looked stunning in an elegant bridal gown
of silk layered in tulle, georgette and satin and a silk veil.

The couples parents Rupert and Anna Murdoch and Patrick and Carol O'Hare.

The newlyweds with Lachlan's sister Elisabeth, brother James, half-sister Prudence MacLeon
and Elisabeth's daughter Cornelia.

Sarah is given shelter from the rain as she walks to the chapel.

Sarah's close friend (and designer of her gown ), Collette Dinnigan, says
"There love is empowering, contagious and obvious. You can't help smiling in their presence."

The stunning bridal party.

I can't resist sharing a few more photos of the couple, they are just so glamorous.
Lachlan and Sarah met on a boat in Sydney Harbour when a friend hired the boat for a photo shoot and in the evening held a dinner party, to which both were invited.
