EntertainmentKarl Stefanovic's surprising wedding guest
Why James Packer is expected to miss longtime friend Karl Stefanovic's wedding
James Packer will reportedly not be in attendance as longtime friend Karl Stefanovic marries Jasmine Yarbrough this weekend.
Their wedding is only days away, but it seems there are still some last minute RSVPs trickling in to attend Karl Stefanovic and Jasmin Yarbrough's big day.
The couple will tie the knot on Saturday, but there's one last very important wedding guest that appears to have jumped on the wagon just in time to see the nuptials - Karl's eldest son Jackson.This week, the 19-year-old was spotted walking with his dad and Jasmin through LA airport en route to Mexico, where the wedding will take place.
The sighting was met with surprise given claims that he was choosing to miss the wedding because of tension surrounding Karl's very public divorce from his mum Cassandra Thorburn after 21 years of marriage.
EXCLUSIVE: 'No wedding for me!' Roxy Jacenko denies she'll be attending Karl Stefanovic and Jasmine Yarbrough's wedding in Mexico... but here's who IS on the star-studded invite list
On Monday, Roxy was spotted boarding an LA-bound flight at Sydney airport ahead of a whirlwind visit to America. The timing of her trip coincided with the arrivals ahead of Karl and Jasmine's wedding, prompting many to speculate she was on the guest list. But while Roxy won't be in attendance, there'll be no shortage of star power at the nuptials, which will take place at the One&Only Palmilla resort in San José del Cabo. Earlier this week, New Idea revealed more of the surprising guests said to be jetting into Mexico for the high-profile couple's star-studded wedding on Saturday.
In fact, the former couple's son had even changed his Instagram name earlier this year from 'Jackson Stefanovic' to 'Jackson Thorburn'.
But despite this, it looks like Jackson is putting the past aside as far as the wedding is concerned.The 19-year-old joined his two other younger siblings Ave and River and other family members as they travelled to the destination venue of San Jose del Cabo.
The lavish nuptials will be a three-day celebration, and it's clear the couple aren't doing things by halves.
New details have also emerged on the bride-to-be's wedding dress, which was locally designed.
The 34-year-old blonde will wear a gown by Jess Andreatta, an up-and-comer who has a store in Sydney's Paddington.
Karl Stefanovic and Jasmine Yarbrough's wedding: First look pictures!
Karl Stefanovic and Jasmine Yarbrough are getting married today and the first photos from the day have been shared! Jasmine, a shoe designer with the label Mara & Mine, looked radiant in her bespoke gown with detachable skirt by Australian designer J. Andreatta, who is a friend of the Yarbrough sisters. Karl wore a Tom Ford suit and R.M. Williams boots for an Aussie touch. Ahead of the ceremony -- which is happening right now -- Karl, 44, was photographed beaming with his three siblings, Peter Stefanovic, Tom Stefanovic and Elisa Pointon, who will serve as the couple's celebrant.
The designer creates custom dresses raging from $8,000 to $25,000, and told The Daily Telegraph that Jasmin was a "dream to work with".
Andreatta said that the dress design took into consideration "the location and overall vibe of the wedding".
"Other than that, I'm not going to give anything away. Just as for every bride, the dress should stay as a surprise," she continued.
Andreatta's other designs tend to steer away from traditional bridal styles, and if her hint is anything to go by, we're expecting a rather exotic garment to feast our eyes on for the big day.
As for the wedding celebrations, the first official wedding event will be on December 6 – a beach party to welcome the couple's 150 guests.
"The following day is a relaxation day and the day after the wedding is a recovery day," a source told Woman's Day.
"This is when the partying really kicks off."
Karl and Jasmine – who legally wed in a civil ceremony sometime mid-year – have written their own vows and a celebrant will officiate the black tie ceremony.
And joining Jackson on the guest list is a plethora of familiar names including Richard Wilkins, Grant Kenny, Julie Bishop, Shane Warne and Karl's sister-in-law Sylvia Jeffreys.
