Wedding bells are ringing for Nashville star Clare Bowen!
The actress and singer married her longtime boyfriend and fellow musician, Brandon Robert Young, at the Cedar Hill Refuge in Nashville, Tennessee, on Saturday, her rep confirms to PEOPLE exclusively. They were married by John Carter Cash, a dear friend of both the bride and groom.
“Sign of a real good party. Danced so much, my slipper blew a sparkly,” Bowen, 33, Tweeted Monday evening.
The Australian native donned a white gown — designed by the actress and Olia Zavozina — for her nuptials and cataloged the weekend on Instagram, snapping some sweet moments before the ceremony, including stunning sunrise views on the day she tied the knot.
“Watching the sunrise. Wearing the blanket I was wrapped in when I was born around my shoulders. Gonna go marry my soulmate now. #foreverbowenyoung,” Bowen captioned a photo shared early Saturday morning.
Young first popped the question in December 2015 onstage at The Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, but their wedding plans were delayed after Bowen’s brother was diagnosed with cancer.
Speaking with Entertainment Tonight back in January about her brother’s diagnosis and her wedding plans, she said, “We got engaged and then my brother got sick, so we dropped everything. Everything stopped and we went to Australia to help him. Now, Tim is in remission [and] we’re just able to start planning, and it’s going like wildfire.”
Bowen admitted that she never thought of herself as the marrying type — until she met Young.
“I had never wanted to get married before Brandon, which I kind of love,” Bowen told ET. “We’re picking flowers and I’m designing dresses. … It’s so beautiful. It’s so much fun. I had no idea because I didn’t have any dreams about it before him.”
Clare Bowen’s Songs & Stories will premiere on CMC this Saturday at 7pm AEST. To give you a feel for her beautiful performance, we wanted to share ‘Doors & Corridors’, and the story behind it (featuring Brandon Robert Young and Timothy James Bowen).
Hey Nashies! Sorry for the lack of updates. I have not been feeling well so I haven’t been online much. Clare went out twice in the last week, looking darling as always. I’ve added photos from both events. Enjoy!
I’ve added screencaps to last night’s episode of Nashville as well as screencaps to the week before. What did you think of the finale?
New year, new Nashville.
The country-music drama will return for Season 6 in January 2018, CMT announced Thursday after the Season 5 finale.
But given the events of the Season 5 finale, will there even be a Highway 65 record company when Juliette, Deacon & Co. are once more on our screens? “There is a chance that Highway 65 will survive,” showrunner Marshall Herskovitz told TVLine in a finale post mortem Thursday, “but they’re still facing the same kind of real difficulties record labels face these days.”
I’ve added 3 new episode stills from tonight’s episode of Nashville. Who’ll be watching tonight?!
