Australian tennis ace Lleyton Hewitt and soap opera star Bec Cartwright married in a private ceremony in Sydney Opera House on Wednesday (20JUL05).

The handsome couple announced their engagement in January (05) after a whirlwind six week courtship. Former HOME AND AWAY soap actress Cartwright, 21, is six months pregnant with their first child.

After a ceremony in Sydney Harbour's architectural wonder, the wedding party boarded a sunset cruise to Taronga Zoo for the reception, where guests were entertained by a performance by JOHN FARNHAM.

Cartwright's Home and Away co-star LYNNE McGRANGER described the service as "simple, sweet and beautiful".
