David Pocock, widely considered to be one of the world's best rugby union players, married his long-term partner Emma over the weekend.

Despite holding a commitment ceremony back in 2010, the couple pledged to not marry until same-sex marriage was legalised around the country.

David, who plays for the ACT Brumbies and the Wallabies, and Emma are prominent social and environmental activists and have been vocal campaigners for marriage equality and global political injustice for years.

Well, a year on since Australia voted yes, their nuptials have taken place. The wedding was low-key and I am high-key obsessed.

They got married in the bush, with no bullshit bunting or expensive wedding dress and announced it with a simple caption on social media: "Married my best mate yesterday".

The bride wore sneakers, the Veja's ones that Meghan Markle wears, and instead of a bouquet she helped carry an esky.

AN ESKY!

Putting a ring on it caps off an exciting couple of years for the pair who usually busy themselves campaigning for issues like the need for a carbon tax.

Which is why David got arrested back in 2014 for protesting against a proposed mine in NSW.

These two are the sporty/political John and Chrissy and this latest news makes my eyes wet. Congratulations civic-minded humans!
