A slew of high-profile guests were seen trickling into the cobble-stoned courtyard outside the chapel before the ceremony, including Karl’s brothers Peter and Tom, Peter’s wife Sylvia Jeffreys, fashion blogger Louise Roe, socialite Christian Wilkins and My Kitchen Rules star Della Muscat.

The groom’s sister Elisa Pointon conducted the sunset ceremony, which occurred in front of 187 guests including Karl’s children, (whom he shares with ex-wife, Cassandra Thorburn) River, 12, Ava, 13, and Jackson, 19.  

Karl, who popped the question to Jasmine with a rumoured $100,000 engagement ring in February this year, became overcome with emotion as he said ‘I do’ to his blonde lady love at the twilight ceremony.    

‘Having his three kids here with him means the absolute world to Karl,’ a source told The Daily Telegraph on Saturday.

‘He is overwhelmed by all the attention but most importantly wants to share this amazing celebration with them and Jasmine.’ 

However a source close to the couple confirmed they signed a marriage license in front of a Justice of the Peace ahead of their wedding in Mexico. 

‘They don’t want to make a big deal out of it but this is a legal declaration of marriage,’ the insider told Daily Mail Australia last month. 

A total of 187 guests are in attendance for the four-day Mexican fiesta including a slew of famous faces.

Celebrity guests include Today show entertainment reporter, Richard Wilkins and and his girlfriend, Virginia Burmeister along with his socialite son, Christian ‘Prince’.  

The 23-year-old model’s boyfriend, Andrew Kelly did not accompany the trio to Mexico. 

Karl’s younger brother, Peter Stefanovic and his sister-in-law Sylvia Jeffreys were sitting front and centre at the ritzy nuptials. 

Former cabinet minister Julie Bishop, who has engaged in a number of fiery exchanges with Karl over years also attended the nuptials alongside her long-term partner, property developer, David Panton.

However Karl and Jasmine’s wedding day guest list suffered several causalities in recent days; with the likes of James packer, Alan Jones and Kyle Sandilands pulling out at the last minute.  

Karl’s longtime friend and casino magnate James did not partake in the auspicious occasion as it’s reported he opted to spend time with his mother for her birthday.

Last week, The KIIS FM radio star’s model girlfriend Imogen Anthony, 27, revealed the couple were ‘undecided’ if they would attend the star-studded affair.   

Meanwhile Karl’s Today show co-host, Georgie Gardner confirmed last week she would not attend Karl and Jasmine’s wedding.

In a statement to Daily Mail Australia, a Channel Nine rep revealed the Today co-host already has prior commitments and therefore won’t be in attendance.

It comes after The Daily Telegraph reported that Karl, who was busted criticising his colleague in a leaked Uber phone call in March, did not invite her to his big day.

Today show fill-in and 2GB radio broadcaster, Ben Fordham missed Karl’s big day as well.   

Meanwhile the newlyweds are said to have tied the knot to the soundscape of English rockers, Oasis. 

An insider at the resort told Daily Mail Australia on Saturday: ‘It was unusual to hear Oasis being played at a wedding rehearsal, particularly an Aussie wedding, but the music will go down a storm. They’re real sing-a-long, boozy anthems.’   

Following the sunset nuptials on Saturday, the bride and groom and their wedding guests will dance the night away inside a bizarre futuristic structure on the grounds of the five-star Cabo resort.

The gazebo-style construction features a set of DJ decks, a huge dance floor and an impressive canopy of LED fairy lights.

The newlyweds have also planned a Studio 54-themed disco wedding recovery for Sunday night, according to news.com.au.  

According to a staff member at the resort, the couple’s disco shindig could take place in the Palmilla’s luxury nightclub, Club 96, which is only available to guests who rent out one of the pricey villas.
