Honeymoon Down Under! Pippa Middleton and James Matthews Take to the Sky in Sydney

Posted on

Love is in the air!

After a private getaway in French Polynesia, Pippa Middleton and James Matthews are continuing their honeymoon adventure in Australia.

The newlyweds were all smiles and holding hands as they boarded a seaplane in Sydney Harbour on Wednesday. The couple, who tied the knot on May 20, took to the sky and headed to an exclusive waterside restaurant.

According to local reports, the happy couple boarded a water taxi, which took them past the Opera House to Rose Bay, where they took a quick flight on a seaplane to the secluded Cottage Point Inn for lunch.

Often frequented by celebrities, the boat house-turned restaurant’s decadent menu includes kangaroo tartare, roasted squid, Wagyu beef, duck breast, coconut parfait and licorice cake.

Middleton looked relaxed in a chic black blazer, black-and-white striped $798 Kate Spade dress and black espadrilles. Her new husband was casual in jeans and a blue pullover.

The bride also proudly showed off her antique Asscher cut engagement ring from English jeweler Robinson Pelham, along with a new addition — her wedding band. The understated gold band works perfectly with her dramatic diamond ring. British royal brides have been wearing Welsh gold bands as wedding rings for nearly 100 years.

The couple is staying at Sydney’s luxury five-star Park Hyatt Hotel, which has uninterrupted views of Sydney Harbour and the Sydney Opera House, which is currently starring as the centerpiece of Vivid Sydney — a 23-day festival that features spectacular lighting displays, music and more.

After saying their “I dos” at St. Mark’s Church in Englefield on May 20, the newlyweds celebrated with a private reception at the Middleton family’s home.

The 300 guests traveled to Milddleton’s hometown of Bucklebury, where they celebrated underneath a glass palace erected on Carole and Michael Middleton’s 18-acre estate.
