Julie Bishop and husband David Panton have been spotted jetting out of Sydney on their way to Mexico for Karl Stefanovic’s wedding to Jasmine Yarbrough.

The former foreign minister is another unexpected guest to have scored an invite to the nuptials, set to take place at the One&Only Pamilla in Los Cabos, this weekend.

The couple were all smiles as they checked in at Sydney Airport, with both Julie and David carrying their wedding outfits in garment bags.

Qantas staff were happy to take Julie’s garment bag off her hands as they made their way through check-in and security.

All eyes will be on what she ends up wearing, as Julie has previously been dubbed ‘Fashion Minister’ due to her sometimes very extravagant wardrobe, which included a $32k dress designed by Aussie Rachel Gilbert, which she wore last year.

As they made their way through the terminal on Friday, Julie was asked if they were looking forward to the wedding.

“Very much,” she responded in the video.

Karl and Jasmine are expected to tie the knot this weekend, with 60 lucky invitees attending, including Karl’s Today co-host Richard Wilkins and PR maven Roxy Jacenko.

His three kids from his 21 year marriage to Cassandra Thorburn have flown in for the special event too, even his eldest son Jackson 19, who had been rumoured to be missing their nuptials.

But apparently Karl’s best man James Packer won’t be making an appearance.

The billionaire had been rumoured to be right by Karl’s side, but the latest reports claim James has decided to skip the lavish ceremony to celebrate his mum’s 80th birthday in Argentina instead.

“Unfortunately he is not able to make the wedding due to this being such a special opportunity to spend time with his mother on this auspicious birthday for her,” a source told The Daily Telegraph.

Another familiar face we won’t be seeing in his wedding snaps though is that of his former co-host Lisa Wilkinson, who confirmed recently she has been left out of the event.

The pair worked alongside each other for 10 years before Lisa, 58, departed for The Project.
