Be honest, Pete, how much would a Gold Logie win mean to you? I’m just tearing up at the thought of it [laughs]. It’s just an honour to be on the long list of people who could be nominated . I think it’s got Wilkinson written all over it to be honest. I hope Lisa wins it.

Rounding up their nearest and dearest friends, the couple rung in a quarter century of wedded bliss by remarrying in an intimate ceremony at the Bathers Pavilion on Sydney's Balmoral Beach.

Their bridal party was made up of their three grown-up children, sons Jake, 24, and Louis, 22, and daughter Billie, 20.

Lisa stunned in an off-the-shoulder Pallas Couture gown while former Wallabies player Peter, 56, rocked a dapper tux.

In fact, the former magazine editor admits her beautiful dress, which she first wore to the 2015 TV WEEK Logie Awards was the inspiration behind their second wedding.

She told Daily Mail Australia at the time she asked her husband if her frock was too bridal to wear to the Logies.

"And he said: 'I don't know what it is but our 25th wedding anniversary is in two years, let's get married again?'"

"So in two years' time we are going to go to Vegas and get married again. I have plenty of time to prepare for another wedding. I'll wear this dress."

True to their promise, Lisa and Peter said "I do" once again but appeared to ditch the Vegas idea and instead they opted for the very fitting location of Balmoral -- where they first tied the knot back in 1992.

'I can never thank you enough' .
There's been an outpouring of support for Today Show co-host Lisa Wilkinson after it was announced she's leaving the breakfast program."Nine today confirmed we have been unable to meet the expectations of Lisa Wilkinson and her manager on a contract renewal for a further period," Nine said in a statement.
