Matty ‘J’ Johnson says his upcoming wedding to Laura Byrne will feature a nod to their time on The Bachelor
Matty ‘J’ Johnson is set to walk down the aisle with fiancé Laura Byrne.
And the couple’s lavish nuptials will feature ‘a little nod’ to their time on The Bachelor, where they first met.
Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle, Matty confirmed that they will have plenty of roses at the nuptials, but clarified that they ‘won’t be red’ like the flowers featured on the reality show.

Laura is also going to arrive with her bridal party in Chrysler stretch limo.
‘So it’s like the same type of limo that you’d see on The Bachelor where our love story began. It’s that same vehicle that will drop Laura off along with her bridal party at the venue,’ he said.
Matty’s admission comes after Laura confessed that she almost lost her chance at love after she almost pulled out of The Bachelor at the last minute.
Laura and Matty are one of the most successful couples to come out of the show, but the brunette beauty told the I’ve Got News For You podcast it almost didn’t happen because she got ‘cold feet’ the day before filming was set to begin in 2017.

‘I had a complete change of heart and didn’t rock up for filming,’ said Laura, who speaks about her Bachelor journey in her new book We Love Love, co-written with fellow reality star Brittany Hockley.
‘If you’re selected, you get given a time and location, and it’s a secret time and secret location, to try and throw off paparazzi,’ she explained.
‘Mine was a pick-up location in Alexandria in some random park at 3pm, and you’re supposed to rock up with all your suitcases and a bus will come and collect you.

‘And I remember 3pm came and went and I was sitting at home and hadn’t packed a bag. I just had a complete change of heart. I really didn’t want to do it; I was worried about what it would look like vying for a man’s attention on a reality TV show.’
She then got a call from producers who gave her until 10am the next day to decide and she had a dream that night which made her change her mind once again.
Since meeting, Matty and Laura have become parents to two beautiful daughters.
They welcomed Marlie-Mae in 2019, followed by Lola in February, 2021.
