No, you’re crying: Couple gets married on Jetstar flight between Australia and New Zealand
We’re all used to flight crew members walking down the aisle of a plane — but on a recent Jetstar flight, a just-married bride and groom strutted down the aisle, too.
David and Cathy Valliant both love aviation and met for the first time at Sydney Airport in 2013 after chatting for more than a year. “We locked eyes and that was it!” Cathy Valliant said in an emailed statement.
“Three years after that, on Halloween evening, we went together on our first Dreamliner flight (with Jetstar from Brisbane to Melbourne) where David had planned to propose on board but he got too nervous with all the surrounding passengers,” she recalled. “He eventually proposed that evening.”
The couple wanted to get married mid-flight between Sydney, Australia (where David is from) and Auckland, New Zealand (where Cathy is from).
“I thought: I’ll be cheeky and ask Jetstar,” she said. “Without telling Dave, I posted on Jetstar’s Facebook page with the ask. I was so excited when they said they’d see what they could do.”
Jetstar helped make the couple’s dream a reality, and had employee Robyn Holt marry the couple during the flight. A typical Sydney to Auckland flight on Jetstar is about three hours.
“Being a part of Cathy and David’s day and celebrating their love and their passion for aviation was unforgettable,” Holt added. “The passengers enjoyed being a part of it too. As an airline we love bringing people together and this was one of my most memorable wedding celebration.”

“David, you are my best friend and today I promise to love and respect you,” Cathy told David during her vows.
They will cherish the day forever.
“It was the most amazing experience and something we will remember for the rest of our lives,” Cathy added.
And maybe love will once again be in the air on a Jetstar flight: A crew member caught the bouquet.
