Abbey Holmes and Keegan Brooksby got engaged in November 2020 and now, after almost three years, the couple have set a wedding date.
The 32-year-old AFL women’s player has revealed she will marry the Hawthorn star in the Northern Territory next month.
“It is a place that has been an important part of my journey to where I am today and a place that means a lot to us,” she told the Herald Sun.
“So many of our guests have never been to this part of the world, so it’s really special to go back and let them know why we love it so much.”
The couple will tie the knot in front of 100 guests including their Channel 7 colleagues Brian Taylor and Luke Hodge, as well as former Survivor Australia star Lydia Lassila.

Abbey will wear a dress from Oglia-loro Couture and the couple will each have one person in their bridal party – Abbey’s sister and Keegan’s school friend.
Keegan got down on one knee to propose to Abbey during their vacation in Uluru, NT in 2020.
At the time, the sports star showed off her stunning new diamond ring and said she couldn’t wait to marry her best friend.
“…and then I said YES on our own private sand dune in the heart of Australia,” she wrote.
Abbey added, “I can’t wait to marry you, my best friend.” This added to my organized chaos. My rock. I love you.’

Abbey met Keegan on the dating app Bumble.
“Because of my job and the work I do, I was always convinced that I couldn’t have an app like this,” Abbey told AAA in 2019.
She added: “My friend got tired of me not putting myself out there, and out of fear that I would turn into this crazy single cat lady, she set me up with a Bumble account.”
“My first date was him, so I have a 100 percent success rate.”
