Australian all-rounder Ben Cutting has finally tied the knot with his longtime model girlfriend Erin Holland after postponing their wedding twice because of Covid-19. The 34-year-old cricketer Ben Cutting who is known for his long hits played for the Sydney Thunder in the recently concluded Big Bash League while his girlfriend Erin Holland is a former Miss World Australia.
In 2019, Erin Holland was given a presenter contract with Channel 7 and has appeared as a boundary rider for the Big bash League most often. The couple chose Byron Bay for their star-studded nuptials, saying “I do” overlooking the beach at Elements of Byron’s Heart of the Bay on Saturday afternoon while Singers Jess Dunbar and Matt Price, of X-Factor fame, sang Justin Bieber’s Anyone as Holland walked down the aisle.
“It has been a long journey to this point” – Erin Holland
Erin Holland told in an interview after the marriage that it took a long time to get to the point of marriage to assemble all the families and friends in one roof due to the difficult Covid times. Ben Cutting expressed his disappointment over rescheduling the wedding two times already due to the limitations among the country borders and felt happy about getting it done in the third time.
“It has been a long journey to this point where we could safely have our friends and family under the one roof,” Erin Holland said.
“Our families are from all over so we had to reschedule a couple of times with borders opening and closing. Everyone was so accommodating and we are so grateful they all made the time, three times, to be with us for our wedding,” Ben Cutting said.
Erin Holland Feels The Dress Was Magical
Erin Holland felt that the wedding dress was magical as it gave her the impression of a princess. She was delighted to have completed the ceremony with the pandemic restrictions taking a toll on the people.
“I honestly felt like a princess, the dress was magical,” Holland said.
“It all came together at the last minute. We couldn’t do fittings in person so it was all done online,” she added.
The ceremony was attended by a number of Sydney socialites including former WAGS Amber Laidler, married to ex-Sydney Swan Jeremy Laidler and Charlotte Goodlet, married to ex-Sydney Swans player Kieran Jack
