Blogging couple Constance Hall and Denim Cooke got married yesterday in a ceremony that was so private, guests were reportedly banned from taking photographs.
Ahead of the nuptials on Saturday, the 34-year-old blogger and bestselling author spoke of “nerves”, but the day was believed to have gone ahead as planned.
Listen: Holly Wainwright wrote a book and became an expert on “mummy bloggers”.
No photos of the big day have been shared on social media, which, as News.com.au reports, probably has something to do with the fact that guests were asked not to photograph them.
The ceremony is said to have taken place at Karriview Lodge, Cowaramup near Margaret River in Western Australia, which looks like a gorgeous country setting.
“Tomorrow I marry this guy,” Hall wrote on Friday afternoon. “I’ve eaten a whole jar of Cadbury Almonds for the nerves.”
“Of course the wedding almost didn’t happen, for the first time we fought all week.”
Hall said the fighting was due to stress, and her pushing Cooke to talk when he wants time to think. She also said he’s probably realised “he’s about to marry a pregnant chick with four small kids who blogs and writes books about every detail of her relationship to the world”.
Together, Hall and Cooke have six children, and are expecting their seventh – a reality Hall describes as “really tough”.
“You favour your kids, they favour theirs, you favour theirs and they favour theirs, so you resent that and you go back to favouring yours all while looking for the perfect equal, just wanting things to work.”
The Like a Queen author said the couple’s kids weren’t looking for new mums or dads, “just friendship and another adult that wants to do stuff with them”.
“That’s all they need,” she said.
Hall also promised her followers she would share photos and videos of her big day, to thank them for the support they've offered her over the last year.
