And more than one year after Kerry Rhodes popped the question to Nicky Whelan, the couple wed in a private ceremony in Los Angeles on Saturday, according to The Daily Telegraph.

Guests including former cricketer Shane Warne and photographer Rosanna Faraci were among loved ones who witnessed the couple exchange ‘I dos.’

All week, family and friends of the smitten couple made their way to California for the wedding.

Days before the wedding, former Neighbours actress Nicky, 34, posted a photo to Instagram showing her parents with Kerry and his mother ahead of their big day. 

‘My dad on #rodeo drive today lol,’ she captioned the photo.

‘Family are slowly arriving from around the world!!! Here with my mum and dad @kerryrhodes and his mum @kokeju…it’s a full house …#familylove #rhodeswedswhelan.’

The photo shows the group  looking casual, but elated with Nicky’s betrothed commenting: ‘full house for sure lol’.

Nicky also took to Twitter, on Sunday, posting the romantic verse: ‘someday all the love you’ve given away will find its way back to you and it will finally stay.’ 

She captioned the post with one simple word -‘Sunday’ – and three red rose emojis.

Despite small roles in the SBS comedy Pizza and in the films Little Deaths and The Outside, Nicky first shot to stardom, in Australia as Pepper Steiger in the long-running soap Neighbours.

Since relocating to the US, Nicky’s star has continued to rise, with the blonde bombshell nabbing roles in Hall Pass and Knight of Cups.

The blonde star was previously romantically linked to US actor Chad Michael Murray, with the pair splitting in 2014 after a six-month courtship. 

In 2013, Kerry was forced to deny rumours that he was gay after photos of the former Arizona Cardinal with his arm around a male ‘friend’ emerged.
