Sam shares stunning wedding snap
Sunrise host Samantha Armytage has shared a stunning photo from her romantic New Year's Eve wedding to millionaire businessman Richard Lavender.
Sam, 44, and the equestrian entrepreneur, 61, tied the knot on New Year's Eve at his 40-hectare property in Bowral on the NSW Southern Highlands.
For the low-key last-minute ceremony, Sam wore a fitted white knee-length, long-sleeved Carla Zampatti gown, carried white roses and her blonde hair was tied up with a white ribbon by hair and make-up artist Rose Saffioti.
Lavender wore a matching white rose on the lapel of his charcoal suit.
After exchanging vows at Lavender Equestrian just before midday on Thursday, the newlyweds and their families travelled a short distance to nearby winery, Centennial Vineyards, for a sit-down lunch.
To ward off the cooler Bowral weather, Sam wore a navy blazer over her dress.
Inside the wedding lunch attended by just immediate family due to COVID-19 restrictions, Armytage's father, Mac, sat at the head of the table.
The TV host's younger brother, Charlie, and Lavender's two daughters, Sasha and Grace, were among the guests, along with Sam's beloved dog, Banjo.
It is just over six weeks since Sam tearfully farewelled her mother Elizabeth "Libby" Armytage, who died from an auto-immune disease aged just 68.
Sam and Richard posed for a classic wedding image, walking outdoors on a hill of his property, for Southern Highlands photographer Abbie Melle.
Sam posted the photo on her Instagram page, commenting: "How lucky are we?"
The couple became engaged in June and had originally intended to marry earlier, but postponed the event due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
They were introduced by charity fundraiser and wife of TV executive David Leckie, Skye Leckie, who was seen arriving for the nuptials.
