Woman's Day Australia assembled a team that worked throughout the weekend to recreate aspects from the Royal Wedding of Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

A former “Bachelor” lead has announced that his wedding will be happening soon.

Former Bachelor Colton Underwood wrote on Instagram on January 16, 2023, “I have good news. The next wedding we attend will be our own. 🫶🏼”

Jordan C. Brown, his fiance, responded in the comment thread, “Are we maybe overdoing it on elevator photos?”

Underwood was the lead on the 23rd season of “The Bachelor,” after first being a contestant on “The Bachelorette.” His “Bachelor” narrative focused on his virginity, and he ultimately chose Cassie Randolph to receive his final rose. He was the first Bachelor lead to come out as gay in the history of the franchise. Randolph later filed, and then dropped, a restraining order against Underwood, according to TVinsider.

Brown & Underwood Have Been Engaged Since February 2022

Brown, a political strategist, and Underwood announced their engagement in February 2022, according to US Magazine.

Underwood told US Magazine that he knew quickly that Brown was the one.

“We knew very early on that we were meant to be for each other. My only thing was, ‘I want to be surprised when you ask me.’ So, he did a great job,” Underwood told US Magazine, explaining that Brown proposed to him.

According to US Magazine, they “exchanged birthstone necklaces with interlocking initials,” and Underwood revealed that the pair wants to have children together.

“I feel like I was born to be a dad. … There’s nothing more in this world that I want than to raise kids,” Underwood told US Magazine. “I’m really excited for when that time comes. There’s no true timeline. Life happens. Who knows, maybe I’ll wake up tomorrow and want to start the process. But as of right now, we’re sort of enjoying this moment and taking it as it comes.”

Underwood wrote on Instagram in February 2022, “This valentines day is a special one. i get to love who i want and i love loving on you,” sharing a photo showing him with Brown.

Underwood told TODAY, “After my birthday, Jordan and I went to Big Sur for a weekend getaway to decompress and relax in nature. I couldn’t have pictured a more beautiful place to celebrate an amazing milestone in my life and relationship.”

The pair haven’t announced a date or venue.
