Life for Docklands real estate agent Cheryle Street took a quirky and unexpected turn last month when she married a federal member of parliament.

Cheryle married Western Australian MP Steve Irons at Crown Casino on October 21 and less than a week later she met the Queen at a garden party at Western Australia’s Government House.

“From the moment I met Steve, I felt I had known him my entire life,” Cheryle told Docklands News.  “I am sure we played together at school or in kindergarten. It was truly love at first sight for the both of us.”

Cheryle will be wracking up the frequent flyer points in the future as she juggles her commitments between Melbourne, Canberra and Perth.

And to start things off, this month she is accompanying Steve to Asia where the couple will attend an official delegation followed by a honeymoon in December.

“We are heading off to Bintan Island, which is off the coast of Singapore for our honeymoon,” Cheryle said. “There are numerous golf courses on the island and I intend to improve my golf swing.”

Mr Irons was originally a Victorian but moved to Western Australia in 1981 to play football.  Four years ago he won the seat of Swan for the Liberal Party and was successfully again at last year’s election.

In his maiden speech to Parliament, Mr Irons spoke of being becoming a ward of the state at six months old, being adopted at three and becoming a small businessman later in life.

“I found that being the boss was not a licence to print money. It was hard work, there were plenty of bills to pay, and every one of your workers’ livelihoods relied on the decisions you made on a daily basis,” he said.  “This was my introduction to Liberal politics – where people are rewarded, not envied or chastised, for their initiative and where enterprise and the rights of individuals are valued and respected, as is the freedom of association.”
