Australian Idol star Dean Geyer marries Jillian Murray

He’s the former Australian Idol star who was thrust into the spotlight when he competed in season four of the reality show.

And now Dean Geyer really has something to sing about, with the news that the star has wed his longtime partner Jillian Murray, 33.

According to People magazine, the couple tied the knot on Thursday in a glamorous ceremony in Santa Ynez Valley, California.

‘She is the love of my life,’ the former I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! contestant gushed about his bride before the wedding.

‘She is gorgeous, strong, hardworking and always the life of the party.’ 

Around 75 friends and family were on hand to witness the lovebirds exchange vows – seven years after the actors met on the set of their film Never Back Down 2.

While Jillian’s dress was a closely guarded secret until the big day, the actress was effusive when describing the gown.

‘I saw the dress and I started crying. It wasn’t even on me yet,’ she told the publication.

Meanwhile, Dean donned a dapper Hugo Boss tuxedo and bowtie for the event. 

Guests weren’t in danger of going hungry at the reception, with bacon-wrapped dates, truffle mac ‘n’ cheese and grilled cheese dippers with tomato soup on offer during cocktail hour.

Dessert consisted of chocolate chip cookies and three different wedding cakes.

Former Glee actor Dean popped the question to his girlfriend in December 2016 inside a photo booth.

He took to Instagram to share the romantic moment, captioning a black and white image of the couple: ‘Soooooo…..this happened @jillianmurrayofficial is now my fiancé. #luckiestguyintheworld’  

The South African-born performer wanted to find a unique way to ‘capture the moment forever’ his rep previously told People, while also keeping it private.

‘He knew he could get the pictures but still have it be a private moment,’ the actor’s rep explained.

The couple went to a Broadway play first, then Dean, ‘took her to a photo booth and got down on one knee while the camera was flashing’.
