Sunrise host David ‘Kochie’ Koch looked every inch the proud father as he walked his daughter Georgie down the aisle at her wedding on Saturday.

Georgie tied the knot with long-time partner Alex Merkel, known affectionately to the Koch family as ‘the German’, in an outdoor ceremony in Regent’s Park, London.

Before the sunny nuptials, Kochie and wife Libby had spent two weeks getting to know Alex’s parents, Uwe and Gerlind, in England.

The two families had not met in person beforehand due to the Covid pandemic.

Georgie, Kochie’s youngest child and the last to marry, looked radiant on her special day in a strapless white gown with a dainty necklace, pearl earrings and tulle veil.

Her ‘something blue’ was a pair of blue heels.
