Kevin Harmer quickly became infatuated with the slim nursing student with blonde hair down to her hips.
Within eight months they were engaged. Last month they married in Christchurch – his third marriage, her second.
It could have been the perfect wedding except that he was on trial for murdering his previous wife, Jillian Faye Thomas.
The former prostitute gave evidence as a prosecution witness the day before the wedding.
Her name is subject to a High Court suppression order, as is her current occupation.
She worked for an escort agency called First Impressions from late 1998 until early 2000 under the alias Christie.
