The TV vet Dr. Harry Cooper married his partner Susan “Suze” Sheeran in a ceremony where their 12-year-old horse Wendy was the main ring bearer.
The Better Homes and Gardens star, 78, married Suze, 62, at her property in Port Macquarie, Australia, with romantic pictures shared by women’s Day Magazine.
Suze wore a sleeveless white dress while Dr. Cooper wore a beige linen suit with a white shirt and hat.
About his new wife, Australian Dr. Cooper told Woman’s Day, “She’s very caring, she’s so hardworking and I’m so lucky to call myself her husband.”
Suze said affectionately: “I’ve waited my whole life for this guy … he’s a really genuine person – what you see is what you get.”
She added, “It was a magical day and I wouldn’t change a thing!”
The two met ten years ago at a friend’s barbecue.
dr Cooper, best known for the veterinary series Harry’s Practice, which aired between 1997 and 2003, split from his 26-year-old wife Janine Morganti in 2012.
He previously told Woman’s Day, “You get to that point in your life when you’re drifting apart — and for the last five or six years, we’ve probably been doing that — so I was like, ‘What’s the point?’ because she’s there wanted to stay [in Tasmania] and not me.”
The grandfather also spoke about how his new wife supported him when his daughter Tiffany, 37, died of colon cancer in 2012.
dr Cooper opened up about the tragic loss during an appearance on Anh’s “Brush With Fame.”
Shortly after the birth of her second child, Tiffany felt pain in one of her hips and called her father for advice, who told her to see a doctor.
An X-ray report said there was a “blur” at the head of the greater trochanter, which is located between the hip and femur.

dr Cooper said he knew “instantly” what that meant.
“I hung up the phone and walked out on the porch and looked up at the sky and said, ‘Take me. Children should outlive their parents. Take me’” he said.
From his experience as a veterinarian, he knew that the “blur” meant it was a tumor.
“Any vet in the world could tell you that,” he said.
He recalled: “She fought it for 14 months. And then I lost her.
