Green's Day

Jeff Green weds in Melbourne

Jeff Green put his day off at the Melbourne Comedy Festival to good use – by getting married.

Fellow comics including Tim Minchin, Ed Byrne and Jimeoin also attended the ceremony on Monday night.

And on Tuesday, Green was back on stage at the city’s town hall performing his stand-up show Personal.

He wed Melbourne-born girlfriend Fiona Darroch, who he met at a previous festival, at the Treasury register office before a reception at the city’s swanky rooftop bar Blue Diamond.

The pair's toddler son, Orlo, was pageboy and Australian comedian Matthew Hardy, who spent most of the Nineties in the UK, was best man.
