Comedian Geraldine Hickey has spoken about her wedding to her wife Cath, in the couple’s backyard “lesbian pit”.

Geraldine and her wife got engaged in 2019. In November, the two women tied the knot at “one hell of a party” at their home in South Gippsland. And the guest list was bursting with Australian comedy stars.

Geraldine told The Project the two women signed their marriage certificate in their “lesbian pit” – Geraldine’s prized paved dugout fire pit in the backyard.

Celia Pacquola and Nicolette Minster were her best women, and Rhys Nicholson, Nath Valvo and Khyran Wheatley were flower girls.

“Khyran nailed it. He walked out, big smiles, throwing rose petals,” Geraldine said.

“Nath was right behind him, but he stopped to have a bit of a gossip.

“Rhys came up behind and pushed him in the back, told him to get going and he slammed flower petals on the ground.”

Furthermore, Geraldine Hickey and her partner Cath and their wedding guests earlier shared photos of the nuptials to Instagram, and they’re pure joy.
