Jasmine Yarbrough’s parents host high tea ahead of her wedding to Karl Stefanovic

She’s set to wed Karl Stefanovic on December 8 in Mexico. 

But Jasmine Yarbrough’s 92-year-old grandmother can’t endure the flight all the way to San Jòse del Cabo for the big day. 

So instead, her parents Cheryl and Bobby hosted a high tea this weekend so that her beloved nan Isabel could be included, The Daily Telegraph reports.

‘It was really important to Jasmine and Karl that her Nan be a part of the wedding,’ a source reportedly told the publication.

‘The long flight to Mexico was going to be just too much for her so this was the best option,’ they’re said to have added. 

Also in attendance at the low-key get-together was Karl’s older sister, makeup artist Elisa Stefanovic, and his brother Peter Stefanovic’s wife, Sylvia Jeffreys.

Nan Isabel was presented with a special white, frosted cake decorated with a bouquet of pale pink roses. 

Jasmine and her family and friends then indulged in cake and champagne as they enjoyed the relaxed soiree at her parent’s home.

The high tea comes after Jasmine enjoyed a ‘boisterous’ hen party with her girlfriends at Crown Towers, the Sydney Morning Herald reported last week.

Accompanied by chicken heiress Tamie Ingham and a group of female friends, the 33-year-old and her posse stayed at the Crown’s $11,500-a-night presidential suite, according to the paper.

The Crown’s website explains that the presidential package includes a 24 hour butler service. 

It also features its own entrance via private elevator access, and a bottle of complimentary champagne is on offer.
