And in a joint interview with this week’s issue of Stellar Magazine, the model, 29, and the footy player, 30, said that the day was a no fuss affair. 

‘It rained just as I walked down the aisle and honestly, it was the funniest. It was so us, very low-key,’ Tahlia said on Saturday.

‘When we got married, it was about making our commitment to each other, in front of our kids, for our kids, [and] saying, “There are going to be really good times and there are going to be not-so great times. But that doesn’t matter. We’ve got each other,”‘ she added. 

The couple’s two children, daughters Sophie, two, and Elodie, one, were part of the ceremony – and that was important to them. 

‘Our girls might not understand it now, but they’ll look back on it and realise how special it was to be there and part of it,’ Tahlia said.

Elsewhere in the interview, Tahlia said the couple spent one night in a hotel after their wedding, but won’t honeymoon until they are ready, due to Tom’s pre-season footy training. 

The pair tied the knot in a stunning star-studded ceremony in a waterfront park in Sydney’s Watsons Bay in January.

The sporadic rain couldn’t dampen their spirits, with the blushing bride and her smitten groom absolutely beaming throughout the ceremony. 

Tahlia opted for a fuss-free but glamorous look for her big day, looking gorgeous in a slinky white wedding dress from Prea James Bridal as she walked down the aisle to Tom, an English rugby league player who plays as a prop for the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the NRL. 

Tahlia, who showed off a golden glow on the day, wore her brunette locks up and off her face in an elegant bun, with her hair styled by Bixie Colour and her makeup done by Kate Bonar Makeup.
