One month on, the former pageant queen, who now goes by the name Jesinta Franklin, has explained why she and her AFL star husband, Buddy Franklin, decided to keep their nuptials under wraps.
In her first photo shoot since the big day, the 25-year-old model has revealed to Harper's Bazaar that, “Getting married was such a sacred, reverent thing, we wanted to keep it just for ourselves.”
Proudly posting the cover to instagram, Jesinta caption her photo with "So excited to reveal my first @bazaaraustralia cover !! Thank you @kelliehush Dreams really do come true @missannieKelly. My first shoot as Mrs @buddy_franklin23 on sale Monday."
A guest at the intimate affair told Fairfax Media, "only their immediate friends and family, no cousins or anything" were invited.
"It wasn't a stuffy wedding. She [Jesinta] is known for being laid back and easy going and that's exactly what she was as a bride. They danced all night long and were surrounded by people who love and respect them."
The bride wore a custom-made ivory and nude Vera Wang gown and cathedral veil during the ceremony, before changing into a bespoke long-sleeve lace gown for the reception.
Dancing the night away, the photos show that guests indulged on endless goblets of Moët & Chandon champagne.
We wish Jesinta and Buddy all the best in their new life together!
