Newlyweds pray for rings to be returned
SITTING on a beach, enjoying a sunset in Fiji, newlyweds Mathew and Jessica Fahey are a world away from Lismore.
But the couple will return to Australia on Sunday and the first thing they will do is check in with the police.
The couple's wedding rings went missing the night before their nuptials and they are hoping someone in the community can help them find the person who has them.
Mr Fahey's mother, Narelle Fahey, is staffing the phones while the couple are away and hopes the rings can be returned.
“They had packed up on Friday night about 7pm and were leaving their apartment on Woodlark Street, but in all the confusion they left a little black bag behind on the footpath,” Mrs Fahey said.
“My son quickly realised he had left the bag behind, so he swung the car around and quickly went back to grab it - but it was gone.
“It was lucky they didn't have passports in the bag as well as they would have missed their honeymoon, but it is still very upsetting.”
The couple forged ahead with the wedding despite the drama and were married in St Carthage's Cathedral on Saturday.
The bride's ring was 18 carat gold and had 12 small diamonds sunken halfway round the band.
The groom's ring was also 18-carat and was combined white gold and gold and was inscribed with the date, 29/11/2008.
If anyone has any information on the rings, please contact Lismore Police on 6626 0599.
