The happy couple celebrated the occasion with “only our children, parents, siblings and close relatives.”
‘It was the best night of my life. Tim and all the kids had prepared a speech, with words that make your eyes light up and your heart grow a little,” she said.
“Isn’t love the best!”
Ms Brumfitt said it was a ‘miracle’ event and added that the ‘exquisite’ wedding dress had been ordered three weeks before the wedding.
“I called my boyfriend (artist and designer Tiff Manuell) three weeks ago and said, ‘I’m getting married in a few weeks… and I don’t have a dress!’” she said.
But Tiff didn’t just rustle up anything old, she made and painted this beautiful silk dress. I have never seen a more beautiful dress in my life.
“Thanks to my friends for helping me pull off this wedding in record time because let’s face it, I was way too much of a relaxed ‘she’ll be right’ bride.”
She also gave kudos to the Bridgewater Mill for providing food for the special event, as well as the celebrant for her “warm energy.”
Ms Brumfitt was named Australian of the Year at a ceremony in Canberra last January for her work on body image activism.

The South Australian has written books and released documentaries over the past decade in a campaign to spread self-acceptance and self-love that has reached more than 200 million people.
Once a bodybuilder, Burfitt came to limelight after she shared a photo of herself on social media that showed her carrying more weight in her “after” photo.
The twist on the “before and after photos” went viral, sparking a wave of support and launching a crusade that would lead her to preach a message of positivity to children and adults around the world.
She’s also turning her attention to men’s body image, with plans to release a third documentary in her “Embrace” series after focusing on children and women in the earlier films.
