Blogger and author Constance Hall has wed her boyfriend Denim Cooke in a private ceremony, releasing this beaming pic an hour or so ago.
From the bottom of my heart. I've never been this happy in my life. 💗
“I’ve never been this happy”
It’s been a big few months for the super-popular online star, with announcements of her engagement, followed by a pregnancy reveal and now a wedding, because things often do come in threes! Some legal woes thrown into the mix have made it a 12 month roller-coaster ride for the couple.
Constance shared quite a few Instagram stories in the week preceding the wedding, with one memorable video showing the couple writing wedding vows in bed. She was also feeling a leeeetle puffy, she confessed. And there was some boob flashing, because boobs happen.
Tomorrow I marry this guy. I've eaten a whole jar of Cadbury Almonds for the nerves. Of course the wedding almost…
On the eve of the wedding, Con took to Facebook to confess she’d possibly overdosed on Cadbury’s Chocolate-covered almonds, due to pre-wedding excitement. Then today, she shared a cute bride and groom snap (top) across her social media channels because her fans were absolutely busting to catch a glimpse of the big day.
It’s adorably plain to see that the pair are totally chuffed about the whole “married” thing. Con says she’s stoked and exactly where she wants to be.
“From the bottom of my heart. I’ve never been this happy in my life,” she wrote.
Con and Denim are expecting a baby sometime around June of this year. “The commune is welcoming another baby,” the newlywed lady revealed, in October.
Guys… The commune is welcoming another baby. We have no idea how it slipped through. We tried everything, on and…
“We are not for everyone”
Denim has two kiddos from a previous relationship and Constance has 4 of her own. Constance is mum to Rumi, Snow, Arlo Love and Billie-Violet with her ex-husband, Bill. Denim, is a dad to sons, Sunny and Zeyke.
Constance been very open about the challenges and dramas of family – and blended families in particular – and this whirlwind union will no doubt spark lots more discussion on the tricky bits and triumphs getting a bunch of people together under one roof can bring.
“Relationships with kids involved are bloody hard work, but the rewards are even more intense then meeting and marrying the person of your dreams,” Con wrote on Friday. “We are not for everyone, but definitely for each other.”
“Take the whole parent part out”
Tackling the blended gang balance, she sensibly explained that she and Denim had taken on a sort of mentor role with each others’ kids, and it seems to be dialling-down the drama and keeping everyone pretty happy.
“Learning what is needed of you as a step parent and for us it was to take the whole parent part out of the roles. Neither of our kids were looking for new mums or dads, just friendship and another adult that wants to do stuff with them, can be there for them and to have fun with. That’s all they need.”
Constance and Denim met early last year, after both had navigated some relationships challenges. They fell in love and the rest is engagement, babies and weddings history! While Con’s apparently not officially divorced yet, this wedding was a commitment ceremony to let the world – and possibly each other – know that this is a forever-type thing.
Huge congrats to this ever-growing, obviously delighted family.
