Too busy to pick up grandparents - (Lucky Confidential was there to help) - Bec and Lleyton's wedding day

Daily Telegraph

21 July 2005

AS Lleyton Hewitt sank beers with his groomsmen yesterday, there was one aspect of his wedding today he appeared to have forgotten -- his grandparents.

His Adelaide-based Nan and Pop, Dawn and Max Hewitt, flew into Sydney yesterday, but the only one there to meet them was Confidential.

With not a Hewitt in sight, our crew met them at the gate, helped them take their luggage off the carousel -- and then shared and paid for a taxi to the city.

The tennis ace apparently gave them instructions to simply catch a taxi to the Intercontinental Hotel -- despite it being their first trip to Sydney in 40 years.

They said they spoke to Lleyton on Monday night, but he was very cagey about the wedding plans.

"You seem to know more than me," Dawn Hewitt told Confidential.

"He kept telling me I'd have to wait and see and that it was a surprise."

As for the bride to be, it was a day of indulgence as Bec Cartwright spent four hours at the Facial Impression beauty salon at Avalon.

Cartwright experienced "the works", with a pre-wedding buff and polish including a manicure and pedicure, a salon spokeswoman said.

Clearly busy with last-minute arrangements, Cartwright emerged from her marathon treatment carrying a diary, phone and a pre-wedding glow.

She was expected to return to the Intercontinental Hotel last night to spend her last hours as a single woman with her mother and bridesmaids, including her sister Kristy, Hewitt's sister Jaslyn and former Home and Away publicist Victoria Supple.

The couple will tie the knot early this afternoon among 200 family and friends in the northern foyer of the Sydney Opera House, followed by a reception at a secret harbourside location, believed to be Taronga Zoo.

The groom spent the afternoon cruising the northern beaches -- not in his $420,000 black Ferrari, but a rented red Commodore -- enjoying a last-minute bucks' day with his groomsmen, including his best man, school friend Hayden Eckermann.

The boys indulged in a beer and bowl at the Dee Why ten pin bowling club before heading to the couple's palatial Palm Beach waterfront home, where they met up with Cartwright and her family.
