It was a beautiful New York wedding for this MKR baddie, and here are the photos to prove it.
Last week Chloe James from My Kitchen Rules married her childhood sweetheart Luca Pietropiccolo in a dream New York wedding. Today she posted a beautiful photo of her and her now husband on her Instagram account. Have a look:
Chloe and best friend Kelly Ramsay went through a lot together on My Kitchen Rules, so of course she was there by Chloe's side. 30 family and friends and attended, and quite a few MKR co-stars. Here's another gorgeous pic that Chloe posted on Instagram.
And Woman's Day has more pictures:
The wedding photos, published exclusively in this week's Woman's Day, show Chloe wearing a stunning floor-length, custom-made Kevin Raphael lace gown. Kelly wore a beautiful black dress and posed for plenty of photos with her 'bestie'.
Chloe first met Luca at the Leederville Hotel in Perth when she was just 16. They dated on and off before eventually getting serious and becoming engaged two years ago. Chloe says her son Dylan helped them decide to commit to each other. “This time I had Dylan, and Luca knew I wouldn’t let him back into my life if he wasn’t going to be there in the long run."
The couple were married in a traditional Catholic ceremony in front of 30 close family and friends including fellow contestants Thalia and Bianca who flew to the US for the wedding.
Woman's Day reveals that Chloe cried before entering the church and that many tears were shed as the couple exchanged vows.
They chose a traditional reception complete with chandeliers, gold cutlery and white silk tablecloths. Chloe says the food was always going to be a big part of her dream wedding and that she and Kelly selected an elaborate degustation menu in between filming the episodes of My Kitchen Rules. “We had a lot of downtime between cooking so we planned everything for the wedding behind the scenes, especially the degustation menu, just to take our minds off the pressure of the show,” she told the magazine.
She says she and Luca chose New York as their wedding location because they both love the city and see it as a place where they could live. "It’s an incredible city."
