Sam Armytage married millionaire businessman Richard Lavender at his Southern Highlands estate on New Year’s Eve.

She shared one of the photos she took of the wedding on Instagram, and wrote in the caption: ‘Congratulations Mrs Lavender.’ 

Sam had previously hinted she would go down the non-traditional route of keeping her surname after marrying Richard.

She was asked about changing her surname to Lavender while attending the Everest Carnival Fashion Lunch in October.

She told The Daily Telegraph it was an ‘interesting thought’ and didn’t rule out any possibilities.

Sam and Richard tied the knot at his 40-hectare property in the picturesque Southern Highlands on New Year’s Eve.

They exchanged vows at his home shortly before midday, then moved to a luncheon at the Centennial Vineyards Restaurant in Bowral.

Sam looked stunning on her special day in a white long-sleeve dress by Carla Zampatti with a matching ribbon in her hair.

The intimate ceremony only featured a small number of guests due to the Covid-19 pandemic, with Richard’s daughters, Sasha and Grace, believed to be in attendance.

Sam’s father, Mac, was seated at the head of the table at the reception, while her younger brother, Charlie, sat nearby.

A source told Daily Mail Australia of the nuptials: ‘Champagne was flowing, and at one point they had several waiters attending to their every need.

‘However, they didn’t get any VIP treatment, and while they were away from other guests, they were sitting among locals and tourists.’ 

Sam and Richard started dating in April 2019, and announced their engagement in June last year.
