A former Married At First Sight star has “surprised” fans by revealing she tied-the-knot with her fiance of just one month.

Ella Ding and her partner Guy Palermo got engaged at the end of February after dating for less than a year.

But it seems the loved-up pair couldn’t wait to walk down the aisle and have already said “I do” at an intimate ceremony in Ding’s homecity of Melbourne on Friday.

The reality star turned popular influencer shared a video Saturday morning of the couple’s Big Day, dated April 5 2024, with the caption: “We said I do.”

Ding didn’t just surprise her 563,000 followers with the announcement, a string of posts since shared to her Instagram Stories reveals even family and friends weren’t aware the pair were getting hitched, instead believing they were attending Ding’s 30th birthday celebrations.

“Pulled off the surprise of the century, I’m on such a high. What a night, what a couple and what a love story,” best friend and former MAFS co-star Domenica Calarco said.

“The best surprise,” former Miss Universe Australia Olivia Molly Rogers added.

“OMG, such an incredible night,” Cassidy McGill replied.

Ding and Palermo, who got engaged during a run through a Sydney park, have been dating since April 2023.

In a touching Instagram post announcing their engagement Ding wrote: “️The man of my actual dreams proposed to me with my friends and family. I love you. I love us.

“And thank you for choosing me. Everything that we have been through lead us back to each other, it was all worth it.”

Ding appeared on the 2022 season of the popular dating show and was partnered with Mitch Eynaud, but the pair went separate ways at the end of the experiment, leaving the on-screen bride “heartbroken” at the time.
