The daughter of a late cricket legend has paid an emotional tribute to her father after tying the knot in the Philippines.

Dean Jones is widely regarded as one of Australian cricket’s best-loved players and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2019.  

The classy batter who played for his country in the 1980s and 1990s died in September 2020 aged just 59. 

He suffered a stroke in his Mumbai hotel in India while undertaking commentary duties with the Indian Premier League

Last Wednesday, Phoebe Jones – one of the Victorian’s three children – married her partner Dario Gomez in the island of Boracay in the Philippines. 

Phoebe Jones had the number 324 embroidered into her veil on her special day

And she made sure her father was not forgotten on her special day, and had the number 324 embroidered on the veil that she wore.

Jones, of course, was the 324th player to represent the Test team. 

Phoebe’s sister Augusta was a bridesmaid and her mum, Jane, was among the guests at the ceremony. 

The wedding had a white theme and there was also a sand sculpture with the words ‘Dario & Phoebe weddig, 24 April 2024’. 

Phoebe posted on Instagram: ‘Feeling all the love after the week of our dreams.’ 

Augusta wrote: ‘The most beautiful week celebrating Mr & Mrs Gomez, so many smiles, tears and everlasting memories.’
