The singer, originally from Darwin, celebrated with over 300 of her closest family and friends, a source told the Northern Territory Times.
Reportedly there was not “a dry eye in the crowd” during the intimate church wedding.
According to the source, the resort reception took place on a lawn overlooking Mindil beach, with a large marquee, filled with lanterns.
The 32-year-old spoke on Sunrise about the wedding in April with host Natalie Barr and fill-in host Matt Shirvington.
“You’re busy aren’t you? You’ve got a wedding to plan. When’s the big day?” Barr asked Mauboy.
“Honestly I don’t have an actual set date, I’m just trying to suss out who’s in town – all the family particularly, obviously now everyone wants to travel,” she responded.
But asked by Shirvington about the potential size of the event, Mauboy was certain of one thing.
“I’m sure it will be a Darwin big family fest, because all my mob is up that way,” said the singer, who moved to Sydney after finding fame on Australian Idol, aged just 16.
Barr joked, “No micro-wedding for you.”
“It’ll be probably the sunset and the beach, you know,” Mauboy said.
Mauboy has been engaged to football player Themeli Magripilis, 32, since October 2019.
Also Darwin born, Magripilis proposed to Mauboy in Greece, from where his family originates.
“The love of my life proposed to me in his family’s home town of Kalymnos, Greece, on the beach at sunset,” she said on Instagram at the time.
“We are so happy. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with my best friend. Thank you for all the love. BIG LOVE JM & Themeli.”
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the couple has had setbacks landing on a date.
The newlyweds, both 32, met in Darwin when they were both just 18 years old.
After seven years of long-distance romance, Magripilis moved to Sydney in September 2016 to move in with then-girlfriend Mauboy.
The couple often returns to Darwin to visit family when there are no work commitments.
