Cricketer Matt Renshaw and partner Josie Harvey have tied the knot at a stunning Sunshine Coast Hinterland ceremony.

The couple married at the picturesque Flaxton Gardens near Maleny on Friday in front of 75 family and friends, including some of Renshaw's triumphant Queensland Bulls teammates.

"It was the first venue we looked at it and we fell in love with the views," said Harvey, whose brother flew in from the UK to attend the ceremony.

 

Initially planned for early April, the couple delayed their wedding to cater for the extended Sheffield Shield season, which Queensland won last month.

Harvey wore a gown by Sydney's Velani by Nicky while Renshaw wore a black tuxedo from bespoke Melbourne brand Mr. Cuff and accessories by Australian luxury brand Arcis.

He carried his late grandfathers' watches in his pocket to include them in the day.

"It's been a couple of stressed weeks. When I first saw Josie walking down the aisle, it was pretty exciting," Renshaw said.

The former Australian opening batsman proposed on Good Friday last year during a back yard picnic at their Wavell Heights home in Brisbane's northside.

Renshaw met Harvey, a law student, at a barbecue at Bribie Island and they have dated for five years.

Guests at the ceremony included Bulls teammates Usman Khawaja, with wife Rachel, Jimmy Pierson and Mitch Swepson as well as Erin Holland and Rebekah Labuschagne.
