Did your future husband ask your father for permission to marry you?


English-born Sam met Phoebe, 26, at an Avicii concert in 2014 and the pair instantly clicked. The couple had been dating for only a few months before the 27-year-old rugby star popped the question to the Sydney writer during a romantic holiday in Europe.

Sam and Phoebe wed over the weekend in a stylish ceremony at Bowral, in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. 200 guests attended the rose petal adorned ceremony including Hollywood actor and owner of the South Sydney Rabbitohs Russell Crowe, Rabbitohs captain Greg Inglis and Sam’s teammates including John Sutton, Jason Clark and Luke Keary.

Phoebe wore a custom-made Alex Perry gown, which featured elegant lace sleeves and a dramatic split showcasing her toned and tanned legs. Phoebe finished her bridal look with her edgy blonde locks styled in a soft wave, strappy gold heels and a fresh white bouquet of roses.

The newlyweds and their guests enjoyed a traditional English meal of chips and steak under a huge marquee located on the acreage, before rock band The Nevilles performed to kickstart the festivities.
