Adam Goodes and wife Natalie Croker tied the knot in September last year, in the NSW Southern Highlands in front of just 20 people. So just how did the happy couple manage to get all of their friends in on the celebrations? They had a second party, of course!
Two months after the intimate ceremony, the newlyweds held a November ‘wedding party’ at Sydney's Carriageworks. The guest list? A mere 200-odd people.
“We're really big on family and it's a really special thing that we decided to do and we wanted to share it with people that are closest to us and not Instagram,” Natalie told Daily Mail about their choice to have a small wedding.
“I was pretty emotional. It was one of the best days of my life waiting for Natalie up there," Adam said, adding: “I think having a party for 200 people was really special."
The notoriously private newlyweds share few photos on their Instagram, and rarely make public appearances together. However, they surprised audiences by walking the red carpet together at the David Jones Autumn/Winter 2017 Collections Launch on Wednesday evening in Sydney.
Also in attendance was fellow David Jones ambassador Jesinta Campbell, who is also newly married to Sydney Swans superstar Lance Franklin. The young couple secretly wed at the end of last year, and although Lance wasn’t at the runway show to support his new wife, Jesinta was in good spirits as she walked the catwalk.
The former Miss Australia debuted new glossy, chocolate-coloured locks that complemented her green eyes, and wore a black velvet suit teamed with wide-leg trousers. She changed into a number of outfits throughout the show, including a bridal gown reminiscent of her own custom Vera Wang wedding dress.
Jesinta recently divulged a secret about her big day – that she forgot the shave her legs! “When I was putting my garter on I was like, ‘Oh my goodness, I'm the worst bride in the world’,” she laughed when telling the Today show team.
Let’s hope she remembered before their honeymoon! The couple spent their post-wedding holiday in the Gold Coast. The location was a surprise for the celebrity couple who chose the local beach over somewhere more luxurious and exotic.
The David Jones show brought together all the looks for the new season, and we have to admit, it got us excited for winter fashion.
