The acclaimed Aussie actor went solo as he walked the red carpet, while his new bride elected to side-steep the photo-fest and slip into the event through another door, according to Australia’s Hunter Valley News.

Eventually the couple met back up at their assigned table, where they kept things real snug and cosy together for much of the event.

The pop superstar showed off her lean curves and assorted tattoos in a black velvet dress with a plunging neckline.

She matched the number with a pair of black heels and wore her dirty-blonde tresses long but pulled back off of her face with a part to the slight right.
