Georgie Gardner’s heartwarming wedding tribute to her father
Georgie Gardner has cited a tribute to her father as one of the most memorable moments from her wedding.
The Today show host married husband Tim Baker at a Sydney church in 2002. In the wedding, she made a tribute to her father, who had passed away years earlier, by having a bagpiper playing and leading a hundred guests from the church to the reception.

"I had a beautiful man on the bagpipes, playing the bagpipes, and that was a tribute to my dad who died when I was quite young, and he always loved the bagpipes, so that was a way of incorporating him into the day," she told 9Honey.
However, Gardner missed the special moment. "Unfortunately I didn't get to see it because I was off having photos, but I believe it was lovely."
As her father could not be present, Gardner walked down the aisle with her younger brother John.
The 48-year-old also mentioned a rendition of Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling in Love by her bridesmaid as another highlight of the wedding.
"She played the guitar and sang, it was a lovely acoustic performance and she's got the most exquisite voice so that was very special,” recounted Gardner.
"It was a beautiful, late afternoon wedding and the reception was in the evening. [There was] great music, amazing food – that was really important to us – and there was a lot of love in the room, it was a very special day."
Gardner and Baker met at a friend’s birthday and got engaged after only four months of dating. Earlier this year, the couple moved to a new family home in Mosman, Sydney with their two children and dog.
