Phoebe Burgess looked beautiful in a blue and white floral dress as a bridesmaid at her sister Harriet Hooke’s wedding in Bowral, New South Wales on Saturday.

In a series of photos shared to Phoebe’s Instagram Stories, the former NRL WAG, 32, posed in the floor-length frock alongside sister Jemima Fairbanks and their friend.

Harriet tied the knot at their parent’s rural Daffodil Downs property, the same venue where Phoebe wed ex-husband Sam Burgess in December 2015.

Phoebe’s bridesmaid dress featured capped sleeves, and she added subtle touches of glam in the form of delicate bangles and drop earrings.

Most of her blonde locks were styled out, with several strands pinned back, and her makeup was elegant.

A marquee with lush greenery, stunning florals and candles, was erected for Harriet’s nuptials to Charlie Houston, with guests seen sipping on beverages.

Back in 2015, Daffodil Downs was the wedding venue for Phoebe’s wedding to ex-husband Sam, 33.

Up to 200 guests attended the wedding – including actor Russell Crowe, rugby league stars including Greg Inglis and his wife Sally, Lote Tuqiri, Steve Menzies and Dylan Walker, and Michael Maguire, the coach of the South Sydney Rabbitohs.    

Phoebe stunned in a custom Alex Perry gown with a thigh-high split that showed off her enviable figure and toned legs.

The bridal party included Phoebe’s sisters Jemima and Harriet, her best friend Phoebe White, and then-girlfriend of Sam’s brother Luke Burgess, Yolanda Hodgson. 

Phoebe and Sam separated in September 2019, and legally divorced in December 2020. They share two children together, daughter Poppy, five, and son Billy, three.

The Burgesses had initially separated in December 2018 – shortly after the birth of Billy – but reconciled in April 2019, only to end things for good months later.

Phoebe is said to have walked away with 70 per cent of the couple’s marital wealth, including Sam’s F45 gym franchise, which she has since sold.

The former journalist, who now promotes herself as a brand ambassador, also kept a $100,000 Range Rover, which she is regularly seen driving around Bowral. 

While Phoebe recovered in Bowral, Sam was embroiled in a series of legal woes following the breakdown of his marriage.

He was recently cleared on appeal of intimidating his ex-father-in-law, Mitch Hooke.

Sam also escaped conviction for driving with cocaine in his system while on his way to pick up his two young children in the Southern Highlands.
