Adam and Jessica Oliver were married last month, but have had to wait till now to share the good news.
The Wollongong couple, who met at university three years ago, had to keep their nuptials a secret until their wedding featured last night on the Ten Network's series Don't Tell The Bride.
The show's premise is to give the groom full responsibility for organising the wedding, while the bride is kept in the dark until the big day.
Adam and Jessica were married at Mt Keira Scout Camp on August 17 and keeping it a secret hasn't been easy.
Jessica, a PhD student at the University of Wollongong, said she hadn't been able to change her name on the campus records.
"I didn't want anyone to ask me too many questions if I changed it at uni because I can't talk about it until after tonight," Jessica said yesterday.
"It's so hard - we've had to put everything on hold until after the show airs then we can talk about it."
And there was a bit to talk about - including a cage-fighting lesson at the hens' night, an enchanted forest wedding theme where the bride arrived by zipline, the wedding party was accompanied by scouts dressed as nymphs and the wedding cake featured the bride and groom's heads on the bodies of dogs.
The unusual cake decoration was inspired by the fact that they each call the other "dog" as a pet name, Adam said. As for the zipline - "Jess always said she never wanted to walk down the aisle with everyone staring at her - and so she didn't," he said.
The enchanted forest-style wedding ceremony at the scout camp was what Adam called "Midsummer Night's Dream meets Rambo".
"I find Shakespeare really romantic," he said. "The Rambo side of things is more about adding a certain level of excitement to it and having something that's memorable.
"Most of the weddings I've been to, if you ask someone what the wedding was like, no-one reflects on the ceremony itself and says 'wow, the ceremony was really good, it was quite exciting'.
"So I wanted to bring in some excitement to it and have something people would watch and say 'how awesome was that?'."
The couple said they agreed to take part in the show because it saved on wedding costs and offered up a different experience.
For Adam, the organising was easy compared to having to spend three weeks away from Jessica. As for the bride, she thought their special day was "fun" and admitted it was a good thing that she wasn't involved.
"Reflecting on it now, I think it was the best thing we could have done. I would have probably lost my mind in planning a wedding because I would have overthought absolutely everything."
