Love Island Australia host and icon Sophie Monk found her happily ever after when she “eloped-ish” with her new husband, and while it was a simply STUNNING affair, her new hubby Joshua Gross shed a few tears.

Speaking to Stellar Magazine about their intimate NSW wedding, Joshua admitted that he cried after seeing his wife walk down the aisle.

“That reveal was just something I couldn’t have even anticipated. I started crying as soon as I saw her, which I didn’t plan on at all. But yeah, it hit me hard. It really did,” he said. Awwwww!

“When Josh walked in and cried, it just made me cry because I love him so much, and I was like, ‘Oh I can’t cry, my eyes, my make up – we have to get the photo,” Sophie added.

“It was almost like when I first met him on the aeroplane. It reminded me of all that. It was just beautiful. And I could see he loved me in his eyes. I’m so lucky.”

While the pair looked absolutely INCREDIBLE, there was another star of the show. Their labrador pup Bluey!
