Weekend Sunrise presenter Matt Doran has married his fiancée Kendall Bora in a surprise ceremony.
The couple, who got engaged last December, did not publicly announce their plans to tie the knot, but Sunrise weatherman Sam Mac broke the news on Friday by sharing several photos and videos from their nuptials on Instagram.
It’s unclear when or where exactly the wedding took place, but the ceremony appears to have been held at a harbourside location in Sydney earlier this week.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Seven for comment.
Sam, who attended the wedding with his stylist girlfriend Rebecca James, couldn’t resist trolling Matt on his big day by joking about his gaffe involving pop star Adele.
The 38-year-old made headlines around the world last month when it emerged he’d flown to London to interview the singer but had failed to listen to her new album beforehand – which angered her label so much they refused to release the footage.

While Matt probably didn’t want to dwell on his embarrassing mistake, Sam insisted on bringing along a magazine cover with Adele’s face on it.
Matt proposed to Kendall, who is the executive producer of Channel Nine’s Weekend Today, on New Year’s Eve last year.
‘I’m now the luckiest man in the cosmos. And officially sleeping with the enemy @channel7 @channel9 @kendallbora,’ he wrote on Instagram at the time, joking about their jobs working for rival TV networks.

The couple began dating in 2019 after being introduced by mutual friends, but it was a ‘slow burn’ before things between them developed further.
‘I wanted somebody low-key, like an accountant. When a friend tried to set me up with Matt, I said, “Absolutely not.” He’s just too good-looking and too charming,’ Kendall said in March.
Kendall was previously in a relationship with celebrity veterinarian Dr Chris Brown for about two years, before they split sometime in 2018.

Matt dated former MasterChef star Justine Schofield from 2014 to 2017.
He and Kendall were first reported to be dating in October 2019, after they were seen flirting at Cirque du Soleil’s Kurios opening night.
The Channel Seven star confirmed their relationship a month later, sharing a photo on Instagram of the pair at a friend’s wedding.

Last month, Matt was forced to apologise to Adele after admitting he hadn’t listened to her new album, 30, ahead of his interview with her.
Seven had obtained an exclusive interview with the star as part of its $1million package that also included broadcast rights to Adele’s One Night Only concert and her sit-down with Oprah Winfrey.
Matt was flown to London for the interview at the beginning of November, where he told Adele he’d only heard one song from her latest release.
Prankster: ‘I’ve had no formal training. Dance is just part of who I am. I feel music. I guess it’s a gift,’ Sam wrote on Instagram Stories, captioning a video of himself at the reception
An ‘offended’ Adele then supposedly ‘stormed out’ of the interview, according to The Daily Telegraph. However, Seven and Doran later disputed this, saying the singer was not angry and the interview actually ran for longer than scheduled.
Sony responded by banning the network from airing any part of the interview during its One Night Only package.
Seven executives were said to be furious and reportedly ‘suspended’ Matt for two weeks. Again, both Seven and Doran later denied this, saying there was no formal suspension and he simply took a week off work.

Speaking to The Australian last month, Matt admitted he was ‘mortified and unequivocally apologetic’ about the gaffe.
‘When I sat down to interview Adele, I was totally unaware that I’d been emailed a preview of her unreleased album…’ he said.
‘It was an oversight but NOT a deliberate snub. This is the most important email I have ever missed.’
