Australian chef and cookbook author Kylie Kwong has married her life partner Nell, an artist, sharing the happy news with followers on social media.

"Introducing you all to my beautiful, extraordinary, courageous, inspiring life-partner, Nell!" She tweeted.

"We got married on Sunday and we are SOOOOOOO HAPPY!"

Australian media personalities were quick to congratulate the couple, with Benjamin Law tweeting: "Massive congrats to you and Nell. Here's to what you've built together, and the rest of your lives."

Internationally renowned chef Nigella Lawson also gave her best wishes, writing: "Congratulations. So happy for you both."

Kwong has previously spoken about the pair's plan to get married, having proposed back in 2015. Following the 'Yes' vote in the same-sex marriage postal survey, Kwong told the Daily Telegraph that they were looking forward to tying the knot.

“Every day since the yes vote, Nell’s been saying to me, when are we going to get married?” she said.

“And me being me, I say yeah I know, I’ve got to work out when I can have time off work, what are we going to have to eat — it’s all got to be right.”

Congratulations to the brides!
