Their love story had a stormy start, but it was nothing but clear skies when the popular weather presenters said ‘I do’ in Bali. Clare Rigden writes.
The weather was always going to have its say as Steve Jacobs and his sweetheart Rose Kelly pledged their unshakeable devotion to each other.
The TV weather presenters’ fun-filled nuptials on May 26, and the lead-up, proved it doesn’t matter how much you know about Mother Nature, you can’t control her.
It began with the night Steve, Nine’s popular Today show weatherman, proposed to his girlfriend Rose, a presenter on Foxtel’s Weather Channel.
“It was Rose’s 30th in February last year, and friends had travelled to Coffs Harbour for a party,” Steve explains. “It started pouring with rain at the end of the night. And Rosie said, ‘Come on – let’s run to the beach and dance in the rain’, because this is something we like to do together.”
Off they went, sneaking away from the party to enjoy a moment made just for them, ignoring the wild weather and storm clouds.
“For two weather presenters, you’d think we’d have known better,” Rose laughs.
