It's official!! Nashville star, Clare Bowen, and Brandon Robert Young are officially husband and wife. Bowen and her long-term love partner had announced their wedding plans earlier this year.
The newlywed couple who got engaged back in December 2015 tied the knot on October 21, 2017, in Nashville. Bowen had initially planned their wedding at both her home country America and native place Australia. However, they ended up getting married in Nashville, Tennessee only, for now, at least!

Clare Bowen, 33, shared some snaps captured before her wedding on her Instagram to share with her over 300 thousand followers!
She captioned the picture:
"Watching the sunrise. Wearing the blanket I was wrapped in when I was born around my shoulders. Gonna go marry my soulmate now."
If that doesn't scream 'luckiest woman alive,' what does?
The new bride had confessed several times that she never wanted to settle down before she met her musician beau. From never wanting to settle down to marrying her soulmate, Clare Bowen's life has definitely taken the right turn!
Few days before her wedding, on 8 October, she shared a picture on Instagram where she is hugging her dad, she captioned the image:
My parents waltzing their way through @sydneyairport to come help me do all the things I never thought I’d do because I never thought I’d get married because that’s something that happened to other people. I really had no interest in it at all... Then @brandonrobertyoung turned up and turned everything upside down and this photo is emotional napalm and I get to see them tomorrow and I’m not crying you’re crying.
That was some emotional post!
She then shared another snap on the same day where she appeared kissing her now-husband Young at the Grand Ole Opry, the same place where they got engaged.
She captioned the picture:
“Wedding practice. Caught by sweet @jaclynkathleen #opry,”
The couple got engaged back on December 5, 2015. Branden Young proposed Bowen while performing at the Grand Ole Opry. The couple, however, postponed their wedding plan since Bowen’s brother was battling cancer and currently, he is in remission.
She said in an interview with Entertainment Tonight:
We got engaged and then my brother got sick, so we dropped everything. Everything stopped and we went to Australia to help him. Now, Tim is in remission [and] we’re just able to start planning, and it’s going like wildfire.
As a tribute to Bowen's brother's cancer battle, Young has also co-written a song titled "Love Steps In". Talk about a tightly knit family!
