Farmer Wants A Wife – Wedding Updates, and Rachael and Farmer Damian Have Moved In Together


It is all happening with some of the previous contestants from Farmer Wants A Wife who have found love both on and off the show.

Recently Season 1 contestant Brad married his long time girlfriend Samara. For those who need their memories jogged, Brad had met Samara via dating website RSVP between him accepting to go on the show and when filming started. To say his two ladies he took to the farm felt duped is an understatement. They had an intimate wedding at Swan Hill. (Source: Herald Sun)

Farmer Jenny has also recently gotten married in a whirlwind relationship to another farmer from Cobar.  She had known him for awhile and was trying to recruit him to be a farmer on the show, when she realised she wanted him for herself. They were engaged after eight weeks – romantic or foolhardy – you decide, anyway they have now tied the knot.

However in other loved up Farmer news, Damian Atkins from Season 3 and Rachael Peynenborg have moved into together on his property in Tasmania.

TV Week says:

Rachael who met him on the show plans on moving to Tasmainia at Christmas and Damian’s impressed with how well his city girlfriend has adapted to life in rural Tassi, where they spend most of their time at Damian’s farm, in Caveside.

“I thought winter would have tested her out, but she seemed to handle it OK,” he says. “She bought a puffa jacket and a beanie, so she fit in quite well with the locals! ”

“She helps out a bit. She gives me a hard time, and thinks that I leave all the tricky jobs till the weekend so she can help out when she gets here… which probably not entirely untrue!” he adds. “She’s handy at drenching sheep, so she’s been good.”

“It sounds like The Farmer Wants a Farmhand, doesn’t it?” he adds with a laugh.

Damian also admits the pair have plenty of romantic moments together. “We just enjoy each other’s company,” he says. “We’re having a really good time with each other.”

So if you are sick of speeddating and the internet dating sites, you still have until 7 December to check out the current batch of farmers and apply to go on a date with them at the official site here
