The blushing bride dared to bare in a unique gown from the KYHA bridal boutique, which had sheer material around the midriff to highlight her toned midsection.

The gown also featured a plunging neckline while one arm was off-the-shoulder to reveal a glimpse of the star’s cleavage.

Laura and Matty are one of the most successful couples to come out of the show, but the brunette beauty told the I’ve Got News For You podcast it almost didn’t happen because she got ‘cold feet’ the day before filming was set to begin in 2017.

‘I had a complete change of heart and didn’t rock up for filming,’ said Laura, who speaks about her Bachelor journey in her new book We Love Love, co-written with fellow reality star Brittany Hockley.

‘If you’re selected, you get given a time and location, and it’s a secret time and secret location, to try and throw off paparazzi,’ she explained.

‘Mine was a pick-up location in Alexandria in some random park at 3pm, and you’re supposed to rock up with all your suitcases and a bus will come and collect you.

‘And I remember 3pm came and went and I was sitting at home and hadn’t packed a bag. I just had a complete change of heart. I really didn’t want to do it; I was worried about what it would look like vying for a man’s attention on a reality TV show.’

Laura co-hosts the popular podcast Life Uncut for ARN, and Matty hosts a financial podcast called The Penny Drops.

Matty first shot to fame on Georgia Love’s season of The Bachelorette in 2016, before becoming The Bachelor himself a year later where he met Laura.

Despite getting together after their stint on The Bachelor, the couple actually met before they ever appeared on the show.

In 2017, he told OK magazine that they’d bumped into each other in Sydney’s Bondi.

‘We crossed paths. She said something to my friend at the sauna at Icebergs,’ he revealed.

A separate source told the magazine: ‘No-one was buying that Laura and Matty met for the first time at [The Bachelor] mansion. They were all too familiar from night one.’
