  • Australian of the Year Taryn Brumfitt weds
  • The body image activist tied knot on Thursday
  • She married partner Tim Pearson in Adelaide 

Australian of the Year Taryn Brumfitt has married her partner Tim Pearson in an intimate celebration. 

The body image campaigner married the ‘love of her life’ on Thursday night in a ceremony along with close family members in the Adelaide Hills in South Australia.

Ms Brumfitt took to social media posting an image of herself with her new husband walking in between rows of guests who were holding sparklers. 

It is understood the 45-year-old met Mr Pearson on a dating app not long after her marriage to her previous husband Matthew ended in 2020, the Adelaide Advertiser said.

‘Last night I married the love of my life,’ the 2023 Australian of the Year said on social media.

The happy couple marked the occasion with ‘just our kids, parents, siblings and close family’.

‘It was the best night of my life. Tim and all the kids had prepared a speech, expressing the kind of words that make your eyes well up and your heart grow a little,’ she said. 

‘Isn’t love the best!’ 

Ms Brumfitt said it was a ‘miracle’ event adding the ‘exquisite’ wedding dress was ordered three weeks before the nuptials. 

‘I rang my friend [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 any old thing, she made and hand painted this stunning silk gown. I’ve never seen a more exquisite dress in my life.

‘Thank you to my friends for helping me pull together this wedding in record time because, let’s be frank, 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 the Australian of the Year at a ceremony in Canberra last January for her work in 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 which has reached more than 200 million people.

Once a bodybuilder, Ms Burfitt was launched into the spotlight after sharing a picture 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 preaching 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 having focused on children and women in the earlier films.
