The Block’s Josh and Jenna's wedding
Although they chose a vintage, country feel for their wedding, the pair also wanted it to reflect their personalities. So some whimsical details made their way into the proceedings, including a homemade lemonade stand, a photo booth with dress-ups – and an enormous serve-yourself candy bar!

The Block’s Josh and Jenna wanted their big day to be lots of fun for guests, and boy, did they deliver! Clare Rigden was there to help them celebrate.

They were known as the couple who argued all the time on last year’s series of Nine reno show The Block. They even named their interior design business “Bicker Design Co”! But thankfully, when it came to their wedding day, not a harsh word was uttered by either bride Jenna Whitehead or her groom Josh Densten. “No mishaps, no arguments – nothing!” 25-year-old Josh laughs. “It was some kind of record!” adds an astonished Jenna, 24.

“I think it’s going to be the one and only day in our whole lives that we didn’t bicker. No arguments at all – amazing!” she says. Of course, they always knew there wouldn’t be – after all, this was the day they’d both been looking forward to ever since Josh famously popped the question to his girlfriend in front of three million people on live TV during the finale of The Block in August last year.

A little over five months later, on February 10, the couple tied the knot in front of 90 friends and family in a gorgeous ceremony at The Convent in Daylesford, Victoria – a little over an hour’s drive from Melbourne. “We’ve been pumped for so long,” says Josh. “It’s not all that often that you get all your family and friends together to celebrate something that’s really just between Jenna and me. It’s very exciting.”

So, was he nervous before the big day? “Look, nothing could be as nerve-racking as proposing to Jenna on TV,” he says, with a laugh. “So no, actually, I felt very calm.”

The couple wanted the day to be as much fun as possible for their guests, many of whom had made the big trip from Albury-Wodonga, Jen and Josh’s original home town on the border of Victoria and New South Wales. Although they chose a vintage, country feel for their wedding, the pair also wanted it to reflect their personalities. So some whimsical details made their way into the proceedings, including a homemade lemonade stand, a photo booth with dress-ups – and an enormous serve-yourself candy bar!

Find out what was on the menu as well as the other clever DIY touches the couple gave their big day, plus more photographs of the wedding party and venue, in this week’s issue of Woman’s Day on sale Monday March 5, 2012.
