Love blossomed between former Miss Universe Australia beauty *Rachael Finch *and her dancing partner, *Michael Miziner, *on the set of Dancing with the Stars more than two years ago.
After an 18-month engagement the couple finally got their fairytale ending when they tied the knot in front of family and friends this month.
First-look pictures of the couple's big day were captured by New Idea magazine - on sale today - and show an ecstatic bride and groom happily posing for the cameras.
Finch opted for a simple yet chic fishtail-style silk chiffon gown, which featured crepe layering and hugged her slim figure in all the right places.
Wearing her hair in a simple, loose up-do, Finch finished off the striking bridal ensemble with a floor-length veil.
Describing her "emotional" walk down the aisle as the most incredible moment of her life, Finch said she couldn't wait to start her "new life" with her soul mate.
"Walking down the aisle was one of the most incredible, emotional and beautiful things I have ever - and think I will ever - experience in my whole entire life," Finch told the magazine.
"From the moment I put the ring on Mish's finger, my new life started and it felt so right."
Miziner also couldn't wipe the smile off his face: "I know that as long as I am with Rachael and we are together, I will be the luckiest guy alive."
The couple shared their first dance as man and wife to the romantic serenade of a *Bryan Adams *track, Please Forgive Me.'Walking down the aisle was one of the most incredible, emotional and beautiful things I have ever - and think I will ever - experience in my whole life.'
