"Theinterest has been intense, but whatI witnessed on the day was twopeople who are deeply, genuinely inlove, committing to a life togetherand in front of two families whoare genuinely very happy for them."
The bride was resplendent as she walked down the aisle in a soft pink, strapless, princess-style gown designed by local bridal couturier Nicky Velani. "I needed something with 'wow' factor,'" she had explained earlier in the show.
And her groom definitely looked wowed!
As the pair stood hand in hand, ready to kick off the ceremony, Cam was eager to get things moving.
"Do we kiss now?" he quipped, earning a laugh from the enraptured guests.
Not yet, Cam... vows first!
"You are the person of my dreams,all my needs, all my desires are wrapped up in you," a teary Jules told her husband-to-be as the pair held hands in front of their family and friends.
"You are my perfect loveand and you are my best friend... I love you and I can't wait to share the rest of my life with you.I choose you."
Cam's vows were just as emotional:
"You've given meme, unconditional love, truth, a wife and you," he smiled, unable to hide the happiness on his face.
"I promise that you and our family will always come first. My heart will be your sanctuary."
Of course, no wedding is complete without a bit of dancing – and the first dance was one thing that the newlyweds were determined to get right, after working with choreographer Josh Horner to create the perfect piece to go with their love story.
"The theme is about basically... replaying the timeand the way that they met," Josh explains – and he couldn't have been prouder of their performance.
"Did they nail it? Yes, they did!That's all they wanted to do," he gushed after the dance – complete with costume change for the new Mrs Merchant – went off without a hitch.
"The fireworks went off, the magic was alive in the room. Everyone felt the love."
So, are babies up next for the just-married duo? They've certainly made no secret of their desire to start a family – and it sounds like Jules is ready to go!
"I'd love a little mini version [of Cam]," she shared. "The same passion for life and the same aura that Cam carries with him."
