Lucy Durack weds Tap Dog

Perth's shining star of musical theatre Lucy Durack was married in a fairytale wedding at the weekend.

The Helpmann Award-winning actress tied the knot with fiance Chris Horsey, one of Australia's top choreographers and an original Tap Dog, on Rottnest Island yesterday as family members and other celebrated Aussie theatre stars watched on.

"It was always a dream to get married on Rottnest, " Durack told The West previously. "I spent every summer of my life pretty much at Rottnest, we always went across as a family, and I have taken Chris across four or five times and we said it would be nice to get married there some day.

"Pretty much as soon as he proposed to me in June of last year, we called Mum and she booked it straight away.

"It is such a beautiful place and it holds so many special memories."

Supported by her sisters as her bridesmaids, Durack wore a custom-made Rachel Gilbert gown featuring delicate lace sleeves and a full skirt paired with an embellished belt and a matching crystal headpiece.

Also out west for the big day was Dancing with the Stars judge and one of Horsey's former Tap Dogs co-stars Adam Garcia, who acted as MC, and Durack's former Legally Blonde co-star Rob Mills.

Via a decorated rickshaw, the couple was whisked from the ceremony at the Holy Trinity Church to the reception at Hotel Rottnest, where they later participated in a choreographed first dance with Durack's flower girls.

After a 10-day honeymoon in Bali, Durack will head straight into rehearsals for her return to the stage in Melbourne in May as Glinda the Good Witch in the 10th anniversary tour of blockbuster musical Wicked, the role that put her on the map.

"The Wicked people have been very good in helping me work out the best way to get married and still be able to do Wicked, " she said.
