Brittany Higgins has officially wed her partner of four years, David Sharaz, in an intimate ceremony in the bride’s home state of Queensland.

The fairytale nuptials took place at the Currumbin Valley Estate on June 1, with the couple speaking exclusively to marie claire Australia about the big day.

“We’ve gone through more in the last few years than most couples will endure in a lifetime. But it was all worth it to see David standing at the end of the aisle,” Brittany shared.

David echoed his bride’s sentiments, calling their wedding “the greatest day of [his] life”.

“I’ve been looking forward to marrying Brittany since I first laid eyes on her all those years ago,” he told marie claire. “That said, celebrating with our family and friends and seeing Brittany truly happy for the first time in years, after everything she’s had to go through, was the greatest day of my life.”

Brittany is a fierce advocate for survivors of sexual violence, after her own experience thrust her into the spotlight in 2019. Less than two months ago, Higgins saw the conclusion of a year-long defamation trial brought by her accused rapist, in which the Justice sided with Brittany’s testimony. Brittany has been vocal about her mental health and wellbeing during this time.

“Today I married my best friend,” Higgins captioned the post.
