She walked along with her fiancé Paul, who was dapper in a dark blue dress shirt and white jeans.

The crowd of VIPs had arrived at the venue on a chartered coach, with Paul personally overseeing the arrivals.

O’Brien runs high-end aviation charter group AVMIN and has several celebrity clients, including Matt, his wife Luciana, Chris and his wife Elsa.

‘We went to Europe for the holidays. We had a few days in Rome just the two of us and I thought if he was going to propose, it would’ve been the two of us,’ she began.

‘Then we went to Mykonos and met up with all of our friends and turns out I was the only person who didn’t know about it.

‘He proposed in front of all our friends. I had no idea and then next minute he was down on one knee.’

The attendees included US Billionaire Ted Waitts and his wife Michelle Merkin

Lauren said the public proposal was such a surreal experience that at first she thought Paul was teasing her.

‘I think I thought he was joking. It was an out of body experience. I don’t think I even looked at the ring.

‘I just hugged him and cried and then we stood up and we all celebrated.’

The notoriously private couple have been dating since early 2020 and now live together in Byron Bay.

‘Matt’s just a normal guy who has the movie-star thing figured out.’

While speaking with Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa in recent years, Matt, was happy to dish on his relationship with Australian pal Chris.

‘Hemsworth is a great friend of mine,’ the bonafide movie star shared to the radio hosts at the time.

 ‘I’m really tight with him and his wife and the kids,’ he added.

Matt has been married to Luciana since 2005 and they have four daughters together.

Chris and Elsa have been married since 2010 and have three kids, a daughter and twin sons.

The couple live in a $30 million dollar mansion in the seaside town of Bryon Bay which is a favourite with celebrities.
