The couple shared their secret with the world via Twitter last night when they simultaneously tweeted the news to hundreds of thousands of followers.
Michael posted, “Happiest guy in the world. Married @KylyBoldy yesterday in front of our gorgeous families. Couldn’t be happier!”
Meanwhile, the new Mrs Clarke, now Australia’s No.1 cricketing WAG, posted, “Luckiest woman in the world! Married @MClarke23 on the 15th of May 2012. Greatest day of my life, so proud to be your wife” at the same time.
The happy couple married at the Wolgan Valley Resort in the Blue Mountains on Tuesday and the only non-family members believed to have been in attendance were Clarkey’s former teammate Shane Warne and his fiancee, English model Liz Hurley, who posted the following on Twitter: “A million congratulations to you both – we were honoured to be included xx.”
With their own tweets, the newlyweds also released three official pictures, one of Kyly in her dress; a photo of the happy couple holding each other and one of the pair riding with a horse, riding off into the sunset, no doubt.

According to Melbourne’s Herald Sun, model Lara Bingle, who famously split with Clarkey in March 2010 after a three-year relationship, said, “I’m very happy for Michael and I’m happy for them both and I wish them a long happy future.”
