Australian Test captain Pat Cummins has married his long-time partner Rebecca Boston in a star-studded ceremony on Friday.
After nearly nine years together and various COVID-19 disruptions, the couple tied the knot at the luxury accommodation Chateau Du Soleil on the coast of Byron Bay.
Cummins posted a photo of the newlyweds celebrating the occasion on Instagram on Monday evening, alongside the caption “just married”. The bride donned a white, sparkling gown and the groom sported a classic black suit and bow-tie.
Cummins and his partner – who goes by “Becky” – initially expected to be wed in 2020, but they, like many other couples living through the pandemic, were forced to reschedule the event for safer, less restriction-ridden times.
They were finally able to make it official on Friday in front of family and friends, including several teammates and coaches.
Cummins’ teammates Josh Hazlewood, Mitchell Starc, Travis Head and Nathan Lyon were among the guests as their captain exchanged vows. Others in attendance were former skipper Tim Paine and head coach Andrew McDonald.
The pair met in Sydney’s nightlife district in 2013. He and Becky, who hails from Britain, have since had a son named Albie, who is now nine months old.
Cummins is Australia’s 47th men’s Test captain. At only 29, the local Westmead was the first fast bowler in more than half a century to be named captain.
With the wedding behind him, Cummins faces a busy period ahead with the Twenty20 World Cup and two summer Test series against South Africa and the West Indies.
