The charming MKR judge, Manu Feildel.

In a delightful and secret ceremony last week, Manu married his long-term partner, Clarissa Weerasena. 

They tied the knot at the elegant Elandra Resort in North Queensland. 

The beautiful bride walked down the aisle to John Legend’s All of Me, and Manu confessed that he shed a few tears.  

“Of course I cried, but it was happiness not nerves. I could not hold onto my feelings. I’m a big soft bear.” Naw!

The wedding was an intimate affair, with only twenty close friends and family in attendance. Even MKR co-host Pete Evans didn’t make the cut! 

Manu’s 13-year-old son acted as Best Man, and their 3-year-old daughter Charlee was the flower girl. 

Engaged since 2013, Manu and Clarissa were pleased to make it official. 

“We were already married in spirit and mind. But we were happy to finally have the time to do it,” says Manu. 

Congratulations Manu and Clarissa!
