According to multiple sources, the couple tied the knot near Robbie's hometown, Dalby, on the Gold Coast surrounded by family and friends. Robbie was given away by her mom, Sarie Kessler, along with her brothers, Lachlan and Cameron, while sister Anya was her maid of honour.

The bride wore an off-the-shoulder boho-inspired dress and her hair in loose curls pinned away from her face, reports. Apparently, the venue was kept top-secret. Not even the guests knew where to go until the very last minute, and they were asked to hand in their mobile phones and cameras to security personnel once they arrived.

Robbie confirmed the news of her nuptials when she took to Instagram to share a cheeky post of what appears to be her and Ackerley sharing a kiss while she flashes her wedding ring at the camera. She chose to leave the caption blank.

4. He changed Robbie's ideas on relationships

Before Ackerley, Robbie had a very different view on relationships, and during an interview with Vogue magazine she gushed about how he changed her life.

"[Before we met] I was the ultimate single gal," she said. "The idea of relationships made me want to vomit. And then this crept up on me. We were friends for so long. I was always in love with him, but I thought, 'Oh, he would never love me back. Don't make it weird, Margot. Don't be stupid and tell him that you like him.' And then it happened, and I was like, 'Of course we're together. This makes so much sense, the way nothing has ever made sense before.'"
