After secretly wedding in front of 20 loved ones in September, AFL great Adam Goodes and long-term partner Natalie Crocker have thrown a beautiful reception in Eveleigh, inner Sydney, to celebrate with family and friends.
But even loyal fans of the 36-year-old ex-Sydney Swans star may be unaware of the nuptials, with news of Saturday night’s festivities only being shared by the newlyweds’ guests.
“So amazing to be able to help celebrate the love and marriage of this gorgeous couple,” The Block stars, Darren and Deanne Jolly, shared on Instagram. “Congratulations Mr & Mrs Goodes!”
The event took place at Carriageworks, a contemporary multi-arts centre that was decorated with light installments and flowers.
Adam donned a white suit jacket with matching shoes for the occasion, while wife Natalie looked stunning in a beaded gown.
Other guests included the newly-engaged Kieren Jack and Charlotte Goodlet, who found themselves in the media spotlight earlier this year after their family feud with Jack’s parents became public.
Unsurprisingly, a number of famous current and former Swans players were in attendance, including Heath Grundy and wife Elise, and Nick Malceski and wife Laura.
Goodes’ wedding celebration came less than 24 hours after his former teammate Lance ‘Buddy’ Franklin’s wedding to model and David Jones ambassador Jesinta Campbell.
Congratulations, Adam and Natalie!
