Bridie Carter, one of Australia’s most well-known actresses, has played many a love tale on shows like McLeod’s Daughters and 800 Words over the years.
Away from the cameras, however, the 51-year-marriage old’s to spouse and “soulmate” Michael Wilson is a fairytale come true.
After the actress finished filming the first season of McLeod’s Daughters in 2000, the couple began dating.
“As you do, I organised this trip to Byron and hired this small dairy barn up in the hills from the mother of a makeup artist friend. I ended up driving my small car from South Australia to Melbourne to visit family, then to Sydney to visit friends, and eventually to Byron Bay “New Idea was told by the celebrity.
“I came across Michael – whom I had previously met through common acquaintances in Sydney – the first couple of days after I arrived in Byron, and the rest is kind of history.”
Bridie married the fashion designer and fourth generation farmer in Byron Bay’s hinterlands in a romantic ceremony in 2004.
“We had the finest wedding ever, and we often fantasise of doing it again. It was the most wonderful, fantastic wedding I’d ever seen. We had the best band and the most delicious food, and we did everything ourselves. I was actually planning two weddings at the time, as I was getting Tess’ dress [on McLeod’s Daughters] fitted for her wedding to Nick (Myles Pollard) while also preparing our own. But it was simply the most wonderful occasion “The actress has expressed her feelings on their big day.
The couple, who currently live on a farm in Byron Bay, have three sons: Otis, Tobias, and Michael’s stepson James from a prior relationship.
Acting jobs might take a lot of time away from family life, but Bridie has stated that her family is her top priority.
“The most significant aspect of my life is my family. My career is a blessing, but my children and hubby come first. I’m fortunate in that I can do both “Last year, she told It’s Your Day about it.
“I don’t work for lengthy periods of time, but that’s the kind of mother I am. I don’t want to pass judgement on anyone else, but I can’t.”
Bridie appreciates her supportive husband for allowing her to achieve her work goals while also spending quality time with her family.
She explained, “I do it by doing my best and having the most beautiful, supporting husband in the world.”
What is the secret of their success? Being the best of friends and never squandering a single moment.
“Every day, our marriage improves. There isn’t any secret to it, in my opinion. We’re just best friends that do everything together and have a lot of regard for one other “Michael pondered.
“We don’t take each other for granted either. You never know what’s going to happen next, so you have to make the most of it. We frequently express our gratitude “Bride has made a point.

A link that can’t be broken: “When you look back, you think to yourself, ‘Oh my goodness!’ What a journey we’ve taken together!’ There are ups and downs, joys and heartaches, just like in everyone’s life. That’s all there is to the human storey. But we’ve always been there for each other, and that’s irrefutable “Bridie stated.
The entire gang has arrived! In 2017, Michael and Bridie attended the Wizard Of Oz red carpet premiere with their kids Tobias and Otis.

Bridie sent this lovely reminiscence and a touching letter to her husband for their 16th wedding anniversary this year.
“This week marks yet another significant milestone. My darling and I have been married for 16 years and have been together for over 20 years. We both forgot until my sister-in-law sent us a message wishing us a happy anniversary. Happy Sweet 16 to the most amazing man I’ve ever met, loved, and cherished. My great love, my soulmate, my best friend in the entire world. Keep loving the people you care about. I do – and it just keeps getting better and better….. Marriage isn’t a chore; it’s a luxury – I’m fortunate to have met my soul mate – and from there, our children, our home, our farm, and our lives are all ours to share. It is possible for dreams to come true.”
The happy pair cuddle up on the red carpet at the 2006 TV WEEK Logie Awards at the Crown Casino in Melbourne.
Bridie and Michael, the real-life McLeod’s Daughters, live on a farm in Byron Bay.
“Every day, our marriage improves. There isn’t any secret to it, in my opinion. We’re just best friends who do everything together and have a lot of regard for each other “Michael has expressed his feelings towards his other half.
It’s clear that they adore each other.
This photo was commented by Bridie, who said, “In 2008, Michael and I were in Italy with Otis. Italy, oh, Italy. I’m missing you, I adore you, you’re in my heart, and your blood runs through my veins….. Remembering the amazing places we’ve all visited, far away, and eager to explore…..one day.”
On Bondi Beach, these two shared a touching moment.
“LOVE HEALS EVERYTHING……”
