Showing off her wedding dress, the bride wore a body hugging, sleeveless dress with a sweetheart neckline and a long train adorned with lace. Jess also wore a silver bracelet with sapphires to match her stunning engagement ring. Her long blonde hair was styled in a low ponytail, while her curled fringe framed her face.

Keeping her make-up light and natural, Jess matched a baby pink lip with her delicately painted nails. The mother of the bride, Linda Redden, wore a pale pink dress as she walked her daughter down the aisle.

Paying tribute to her late father, who died last September, her bouquet of white roses featured a silver locket containing a picture of her dad. She previously revealed that her dress had a secret inscription in blue that read “My darling dad, forever in my heart."

“A very special place with the best memories - dad was with me every step of the way,” she wrote.

Meanwhile, Jess’s four bridesmaids wore matching rich sapphire silk dresses.

The wedding was originally planned for June 2021 however they moved it forward to November 2020 after Jess’s father, Brian Redden, was diagnosed with prostate cancer.

Sadly, the 70-year-old passed away in September 2020 and did not see his daughter make it down the aisle.

The couple shelved wedding plans while they moved to Australia for six months while Rob played for Western Force, a rugby squad based in Perth.
