She rose to fame in 2005 af­ter form­ing mu­sic duo The Veronicas with her twin sis­ter Jes­sica, and has since co-writ­ten and re­leased sev­eral hit tracks. Now, Lisa Origliasso, 33, has made head­lines once again af­ter ty­ing the knot with long-time boyfriend Lo­gan Huff­man, 28.

The edgy brunette and the Amer­i­can ac­tor said their vows at Se­crets On the Lake in Queens­land af­ter V star Huff­man popped the ques­tion in late 2016. Tak­ing to In­sta­gram in Jan­uary 2017 to an­nounce their en­gage­ment, Origliasso posted a heart­felt trib­ute along­side a photo of her cus­tomised di­a­mond ring. “Only he who truly knows me, could de­sign some­thing that could so flaw­lessly cap­ture the essence of who I am and what this means to me,” the singer wrote on Jan. 2, 2017. “It sym­bol­i­cally rep­re­sents a love that is an­cient, in­de­struc­tible & pow­er­ful.” Cel­e­brat­ing their en­gage­ment with close fam­ily and friends on April 2, 2017, Origliasso shared an In­sta­gram video of their cel­e­bra­tory food. “To­day my sweet baby [Jess] catered [Lo­gan’s] and my en­gage­ment party with the dreami­est ve­gan graz­ing ta­ble, hand pick­ing and ar­rang­ing ev­ery sin­gle part of it her­self,” she wrote. “I am the luck­i­est girl in the uni­verse to have my two by my side.” Prior to top­ping the charts with their sin­gles “4Ever” in 2005 and “Un­touched” in 2007, The Veronicas had been signed to Aus­tralian record com­pany Ex­cal­ibur Pro­duc­tions, for which they co-wrote No. 1 hits for other artists, in­clud­ing “All About Us” by Rus­sian mu­sic duo

The singer be­gan dat­ing Huff­man in 2014 and the pair were pho­tographed cud­dling up to each other while out and about in Los An­ge­les. The fol­low­ing year, Huff­man starred in The Veronicas’ dark mu­sic video for “Cruel” – a song writ­ten about a break-up.

Al­most a year af­ter his pro­posal, Huff­man up­loaded an im­age of him­self and Origliasso at a mar­riage equal­ity rally af­ter leg­is­la­tion was passed to al­low same-sex cou­ples marry. He wrote on Nov. 15, 2017, “YES! Con­grat­u­la­tions Aus­tralia!” Origliasso com­mented on his post say­ing, “Let’s plan a wed­ding now,” giv­ing the im­pres­sion the pair may have been hold­ing off on the big day un­til the law passed. Origliasso’s sis­ter Jess has been open about her sex­u­al­ity and had a high-pro­file re­la­tion­ship with Orange is the New Black ac­tress Ruby Rose, whom she dated from 2016 un­til April this year.

On Nov. 19, 2017, Huff­man posted a trib­ute to his fi­ancé. “The first time I saw Lisa Marie smile, I knew I was in trou­ble. In that one mo­ment ev­ery­thing seemed to stand still,” he wrote along­side an im­age of the pair with their en­gage­ment rings. “I will al­ways pro­tect you. And I will al­ways love you.”

On their spe­cial day, Origliasso and Huff­man opted for wed­ding at­tire to re­flect their per­son­al­i­ties. The bride wore a thick-strapped gown with a plung­ing neck­line, paired with a struc­tured white flo­ral head­piece dec­o­rated with leather and in­tri­cate bead­ing. She is known for her love of head­pieces and even posted a video on Oct. 16 with red flo­ral head­wear of a sim­i­lar style, cap­tioned, “Brideto-be-style ac­ti­vated.” Her groom sported a 1920s look with a black vest, waist­coat and top hat. Huff­man is no stranger to for­mal wear, often choos­ing tuxe­dos with sus­penders for shoots and pub­lic ap­pear­ances. The cou­ple up­loaded sev­eral pho­tos to In­sta­gram in the lead-up to their nup­tials. On Oct. 12, Huff­man shared a black-and-white pic­ture of him­self and his wife-to-be. “Next time it’s for­ever,” he cap­tioned the moody im­age. “Fall­ing madly madly madly in love with you more and more ev­ery day,” Origliasso posted on Aug. 10. “I still don’t know how I got lucky enough to keep you for­ever, babe.” On Nov. 6, Origliasso shared a photo from the big day, writ­ing, “This past week­end I got to marry the man of my dreams. In the dress of my dreams.”

“I will al­ways pro­tect you. I will al­ways love you ” —Lo­gan Huff­man

The bride told Vogue, “My French and Ital­ian an­ces­tries played a big part in choos­ing the fab­rics and in­tri­cate de­tails of my veil and ac­ces­sories.”

Origliasso needed a team to ad­just her gown and veil be­fore walk­ing down the aisle. The bridal party wore white and blush pink to com­ple­ment the bride’s dress.

A look of love: Origliasso wrote on Sept. 5, 2017, “He has my heart for­ever.”

Origliasso made sure to keep her makeup flaw­less, get­ting touch-ups through­out the day.
