‘I will always treasure this day’: Jesinta Franklin shares never-before-seen photos from her wedding dress fitting with Vera Wang in NYC to mark third anniversary with husband Buddy
Jesinta Franklin (née Campbell), 28, is celebrating her third wedding anniversary to AFL star husband Buddy, 32, this week.
And the pregnant WAG was feeling particularly nostalgic on Monday, as she shared stunning never-before-seen photos from her 2016 New York bridal fitting.
In an exclusive post penned on her Jesinta Franklin app, she detailed the incredible experience of having her $20,000 gown altered by famous designer Vera Wang.

Jesinta shared a total of 16 film-developed photographs by Wanda Orme in an entry on her pay-per-month app.
Jesinta wore two custom-made designs by Vera Wang for her low-key nuptials, but was seen in the images getting a fitting for her corseted tulle gown, which was estimated at the time to be worth $20,000 AUD.
‘There are some moments in life that just make me pinch myself and my wedding dress fitting in New York with Vera Wang was one of them,’ Jesinta began.
The model said she was left speechless to discover ‘the queen of bridal’ would be personally meeting her for the fitting, and said the whole experience ‘felt so surreal’.
‘There are no words to describe how lucky I am… It was such a big surprise to have Vera herself attend (another pinch me moment) and the entire experience felt so surreal,’ she said.

Jesinta said she made sure to buy Vera a bunch of flowers ahead of her arrival and said she will always treasure the day and the designer for making her feel special.
The model looked positively radiant in the fitting photos, which she claimed happened just one week before her big day.

On Instagram, she also shared photos from her first bridal fitting of her second custom-made Vera Wang gown in 2015.
Wearing a mermaid-tale gown with tulle veil, she wrote: ‘From my first fitting and visit to NYC @verawanggang @priyadeluxe 4 years ago. I still adore this dress. More pics coming tonight on my App.’

It’s not the first time Jesinta has used her app to let fans in on exclusive content and news from her life.
In August, she took to her app to reveal she and husband Buddy were expecting their first child.
She wrote at the time: ‘The journey to get here hasn’t been easy and this little life is the greatest gift and we feel truly blessed and grateful that we will have a little angel of our own.
The lengthy post continued: ‘We have both dreamt of this for a long time and whilst the last 2.5 years have been physically and emotionally challenging, there’s nothing we would change as it’s brought us to this beautiful moment.
‘The immense love we already have for our baby is indescribable and we can’t wait to meet our little miracle.’
It’s unclear how far along the WAG is with her pregnancy, and she is yet to announce a due date or gender for their bundle of joy.
