Aussie cricket legend Nathan Lyon has tied the knot with Emma McCarthy in an intimate weekend wedding ceremony.

They both shared snaps of their big day on Instagram, with the newlyweds smiling for their first official photos as husband and wife.

McCarthy — who has changed her name to Emma Lyon on the social media platform — shared the picture with a simple love heart as the caption, while Lyon wrote, “Mr and Mrs.”

The congratulations were quick to flood in for the couple, with NSW star Baxter Holt commenting on Lyon’s post, “Happiness is an understatement!! So happy for you two!!”

Former Australian bowler Trent Copeland wrote “congratulations lovers”, Alex Carey said “beautiful mate, congratulations guys” while Lyon’s fellow Test spinner Mitch Swepson added, “Yes Gazza! Congrats to you both.”

Australian T20 star Chris Green chimed in with the obligatory “Nice Garry”, adding a GOAT emoji in reference to Lyon’s nickname.

Nathan and Emma started dating in 2017, with heir relationship being made public after they were spotted together in Perth.

The beginning of Lyon and McCarthy’s romance marked the end of Nathan’s 10-year relationship with ex Melissa Waring, who he shares two children with.
