Cool idea to marry in the air. I'm sure it's been done before but I think it's certainly memorable. Nice of Jetstar to come to the table and agree to the wedding!

Cathy said after the couple had dated for three years, David came close to proposing to her on a Jetstar flight from Brisbane to Melbourne but “got too nervous with all the surrounding passengers” – but proposed that night.
Been there, done that. Even got Seq. 1 ;)

Half way between countries in international territory, so wondering is it legal, which marriage laws apply and registered in which country?

The article suggested Australia, it also suggested the celebrant was a 'ground crew worker' so I feel the images in the air were mostly for show.

I wonder if the celebrant's fare was paid for by the couple or if JQ gave them a freebie for the publicity?

Read somewhere about this - I'd say the country in which the aircraft is registered. If the aircraft was registered in Aus, then Australian laws apply.

From memory, similar laws apply for child birth on air or at sea ..
