And out of 500 guests, only 7-10 were hers.
And on the 29th of November 2009 Brynne married a 66-year-old Australian medical entrepreneur – Geoffrey Edelsten.
“I thought, I just got really lucky,” Brynne told Studio 10 this morning.
It was only 11 months after their first meeting that they got married and their wedding cost over $3 million, which Brynne thought was normal.
“I thought that’s how all wedding’s were, but apparently most are a bit smaller,” she told Studio 10.
At the wedding there were 500 guests and 472 people working, but out of all the people who attended, only 7-10 were Brynne's guests. And even then her brothers weren't allowed to go and see her at her own wedding. When they tried to approach her the security guards wouldn't let them. Brynne says that she doesn't have a single photo with her brothers from the wedding.
She told Studio 10, "I thought all weddings were like that."
Some of Geoffrey's relatives were paid to be there, which Brynne thought was more strange on their part, for accepting the money and attending, than it was for Geoffrey to pay them.
And while the sweet Brynne talked fondly about the beginning of her relationship with the wealthy (and much older) Australian man she was with, it seemed to take a sharp turn before its demise.
When asked what she liked most about the relationship Brynne told Studio 10, "His focus on me. He was always focused on me." Continuing to admit that he called her on the phone a lot and, "If I didn't answer he'd call obsessively."
When asked what went wrong. Brynne laughed a little and then told Studio 10, "It was a very lonely time."
