They chose Ireland as their special spot as Sarah’s brother and family live in Dublin.
But pulling off this epic European fairytale wedding in two months was no easy feat.
“It was hard to put together because of the time difference from Australia to Ireland,” Sarah explains.
“We would go to work [on Home and Away] all day, and then come home and wait for the Irish to wake up so we could call and email.”
Jimmy, 43, shares: “I don’t know how she did it!”
In what can only be described as a perfect day, Sarah, 34, knew things were off to a great start when she kept seeing signs. “We had a lot of good omens,” she explains.
“Jimmy’s favourite number is 22 and I kept seeing it everywhere! There were lots of other things that happened that made me feel so content.”
Flying in a few days before the big day, Sarah and Jimmy were overwhelmed with emotion for their nearest and dearest.
“They’d flown so far. I’ve done that flight a lot and it’s not easy. And they spent so much money so the people that were there were really special to us. It was perfect in that sense.”
The couple are so excited about their new life together – one they say “already feels different”.
“It’s a fresh start for us,” Jimmy describes. “It feels like a foundation’s made to go and do something brilliant. Who knows what’s going to happen in the next six, 12, 18, 24 months? But whatever it is, it’s going to be well-supported and it’s going to be so much easier.”
While they’re back in Australia now, the pair do plan on a second celebration at home with all their Home and Away cast members.
“We’re going to do that party in late spring,” Jimmy explains, before spilling honeymoon details. “We will wait until the end of the year for that. And we’re choosing from five countries. Maybe Italy and then Greece and then Sri Lanka, China, or Japan.”
And as a brand-new family, a move might be on the cards for Jimmy, Sarah and Scout. “There’s a couple of plans on the table,” Jimmy says. “We might eventually move somewhere new. Work permitting!”
