Noses out of joint as phones banned at society wedding of the year

The party continues on Sunday with the couple hosting a post-wedding washup aboard Sydney superyacht Quantum.

However, more than a few noses are out of joint after the couple imposed a strict technology ban forbidding the use of phones and the taking of photos.

Emerald City is told some guests have taken drastic measures to ensure they’re able to capture happy snaps at the event by hiring a personal photographer to follow them around.

Efron’s squeeze keeps a low-profile online
She’s the talk of Australia and the envy of every noughties tween after capturing the heart of Hollywood heart-throb, Zac Efron, during his COVID sojourn Down Under.

While little is known about model-cum-waitress Vanessa Valladares, the Australian public can’t seem to get enough of her fairytale romance after meeting Efron at Byron Bay’s General Store cafe in June.

Despite jetting across the state for trips to Sydney, Thredbo and Byron Bay, the pair are doing their best to fly under the radar. Vanessa, 25, who originally hails from Werribee on the outskirts of Melbourne, has managed to keep her “regular” Aussie family out of the public eye, including her twin brother Jayden.

Media-shy Jayden opted to steer clear of his sister’s newfound fame, deleting all forms of social media prior to her relationship becoming public. However, mum and family matriarch Diana Valladares isn’t shy when it comes to sharing her life on social media, with a stream of commentary from her job at Coles, updates from her last pregnancy and photos of her daughters’ modelling achievements.

But Vanessa’s high-profile relationship with Efron is yet to make an appearance on her mum’s active social media feed. It is not clear if the Valladares clan have been introduced to the Hollywood star; there has been less opportunity because of the COVID-19 lockdown in Victoria.

Along with her twin Jayden, Vanessa also has a seven-year-old half brother named Tyson who she has shared images of on her private Facebook page.

Last week Emerald City reported Efron and Valladares dined at Sydney’s Catalina restaurant on their jaunt to Sydney. But the pair may have to put their romance on hold, as Efron is due back in the United States in coming months to film the Disney+ remake of Three Men and a Baby.

Sydney socialite caught up in court crossfire
Locals in the usually quaint southern highlands town of Moss Vale were curious when a large media contingent descended on their village last week. Media crews and photographers spilled onto the street outside Moss Vale Local Court as solicitor to the stars Bryan Wrench fronted court to fight claims of charges of assault and intimidation between his client Sam Burgess and father-in-law Mitch Hooke

American Cancer Society’s 100+ Year Fight to Save Lives from Breast Cancer Gets Boost from Fashion Retailer, Buckle

ATLANTA, Oct. 8, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Fashion retailer, Buckle, is again sponsoring Denim Days to support the American Cancer Society (ACS). Denim Days began in 1986, when employees at a private company got together to ask coworkers for donations to “go casual” for the cause. The idea spread, and now companies, schools, and other organizations nationwide have participated. In the weeks leading up to Denim Days, friends and coworkers are asked to donate $5 or more to wear jeans to work one day in October.

In support of the campaign, Buckle will donate $1 to ACS Denim Days for every pair of regular-priced jeans purchased in-store and online from participating brands from October 4 – 25, 2020. Buckle will also contribute 20% from the sale of every t-shirt with a “Unite To Fight” sticker and give their guests the opportunity to support ACS by “Rounding Up” their in-store purchase to the nearest dollar during the same timeframe.

“Buckle has always believed that good business begins with great people doing good things, and we know our October campaign to support the fight against breast cancer is a great way to come together with our teammates, guests, and our great partners like ACS to do something impactful,” shared Dennis Nelson, President and Chief Executive Officer at Buckle.

Buckle’s campaign will help the American Cancer Society provide much-needed resources and support  for the one in eight women who will develop breast cancer in their lifetime.

“We could not be more appreciative of Buckle’s support for Denim Days,” said Gary Reedy, Chief Executive Officer of the American Cancer Society. “Buckle is a great partner in our work to help save lives in the fight against breast cancer, and its team, leadership and guests continue to answer our calls for support.”

ACS is the number one trusted source of cancer information and provides 24/7 virtual and live response support via their cancer hotline; provides transportation and lodging assistance to those who must travel long distances to get care; and is the primary private nonprofit funder of cancer research, investing more than $4.9 billion over 75 years.
