Overlooking the Indian Ocean and surrounded by 20,000 long-stemmed roses, Jennifer Hawkins has married her long-time love, Jake Wall, in Bali.
The former Miss Universe, 29, wed her builder/model boyfriend of eight years in an intimate ceremony that was witnessed by just 60 close friends and family.
Dressed in a stunning meringue-style wedding gown by Melbourne designer Toni Maticevski, Jen walked down the aisle to the strains of Pachelbel’s Canon In D.
The couple were flanked by two bridesmaids (dress in pale pink) and two groomsmen. They exchanged vows which were tailored to match their story, pledging ”to love and care for each other.”
The ceremony, which was held at the seven-star Semara resort in Uluwatu, was followed by an all-white reception and, despite the elegant surrounds, was a truly fun, family celebration.
Jen, who has been engaged to Jake for about 18 months, told The Daily Telegraph earlier this year. “I just want everyone to have fun and that’s the joy of going overseas – it makes it special for everyone else too,”
Jake and Jen booked out the entire exclusive resort of Semara for three days, largely to ensure privacy on their big day, but also to protect a six-figure magazine deal with Woman’s Day.
As such, security was tight, with guards hired to keep unwanted photographers out of the reception and away from the clifftop ceremony.
