The invitations went out last month and the final touches are being put to the dress, but the exact location for Karl Stefanovic’s wedding to Jasmine Yarbrough remained a closely guarded secret – until now!

The embattled Today host and his love are expected to tie the knot at billionaire Lang Walker’s $100 million Kokomo Private Island in Fiji later this month, after weeks of teasing about their impending nuptials.

The couple have kept fans guessing, even dressing as a bride and groom just two weeks ago.

The wedding was first planned for November in Argentina, but insiders last week confirmed the couple had settled on Kokomo for their official wedding, after a bizarre commitment ceremony in Sydney’s Palm Beach in March.

“It’s very private and has every luxury,” says a Nine insider.

“Karl and Jasmine loved it when they spent a week there earlier in the year. It’s a special place for them.”

It’s where Karl’s brother Peter took his bride, Today star Sylvia Jeffreys for their honeymoon in April last year, and the resort can accommodate up to 134 guests in five star-style, including one amazing main residence, which is available to rent for a cool $24,000 a night.

The luxurious Kokomo resort has a special place in Karl and Jasmine’s hearts.

The invitations, which went out three weeks ago, asked guests to set aside three days for what will be a wedding extravaganza with a who’s who of fashion and entertainment rich-listers on hand to witness the ceremony.

“Jasmine wanted a big splashy wedding, and Karl is determined to deliver her dream wedding,” our source says.

“I know she’s spoken to a handful of top designers around the world over the past six months before she settled on the perfect dress.”

The couple were super loved-up at a friend’s recent wedding in Italy.

While Jasmine, 34, is keeping the designer a closely guarded secret, friends say she’s chosen six dresses for the three-day event, but may wear a gown from Paddington design house J Andreatta Bridal Couture.

She chose the designer to dress her for a wedding she and Karl, 43, attended in Tuscany, Italy, two weeks ago, later posting a shot of herself wearing the nude, sheer gown, while tuxedo-clad Karl jokingly leered at her backside.

“Not the only one obsessed with this dress,” she captioned the shot posted to social media after the wedding of her close friend Jack Bedwani and his bride Rae Temily, which she and Karl attended after spending a few days on a superyacht moored off the Isle of Capri with James Packer.
