Thomas didn't let anything rain on his proposal to Bindi

Except the actual rain, because Thomas popped the question smack-bang in the middle of a storm.
"It was a Friday night and I was waiting for Tom to finish work," explains Bindi. "The weather was terrible... and Tom suggested we go for a run!" The pair headed out and followed their usual route along Eastern Beach in Geelong - they even added in some hill sprints. "I made it to the top of one of the hills and we both stood there in the pouring rain, thunder and lightning. Tom crouched on one knee and out of nowhere produced the most beautiful diamond ring I've ever seen. And that was that!"

The pair tied the knot in a traditional Catholic ceremony held in their local church. Both of their mothers were witnesses in the service. "Tom thought I'd had a valium before the ceremony - obviously I did not!" says the bride. "I had to explain to him that I was feeling so overwhelmed. In hindsight it was funny how I was crying the whole way down the aisle. I had my dad and stepdad on each side and I think they carried me the whole way. I was really just overwhelmed with joy." One of the bride's favourite moments happened at the altar, when she saw Tom's four-year-old son, Jack, looking up at his dad. "It really warmed my heart."

The beautiful Vue Grand hotel set the scene for the grand reception, and ten minutes before the bridal party made their entrance it was decided that each couple would dance into the dining room. The bridesmaids and groomsmen cut shapes to Cypress Hill's Jump Around and the newlyweds danced to Red Foo's Juicy Wiggle.
