The newly married couple had their ceremony just past the Victorian country town of Warrnambool, four hours west of Melbourne, in Tyrendarra, on the Shipwreck Coast, at a venue called the Longmeadow Estate.
Rohan already has two daughters with ex-wife Amie, while another – their second born – died just after birth.
The infant had a fatal neural tube defect known as anencephaly, which has no known cure.
Rohan was married to Amie for four years, having been together since high school, but the pair split during the COVID-affected 2020 AFL season when clubs went into bio-secure hubs in Queensland.
They split only a matter of months after their third child was born in March last year.
Some of Rohan’s Geelong teammates were among the big names to offer their well-wishes to the new couple.
Patrick Dangerfield, Joel Selwood and Tom Hawkins all commented with congratulations.
Longmeadow Estate’s Instagram account also commented on Rohan’s post.
“Congratulations Madi and Gary. Thank you for choosing our venue to host your special day. Just stunning,” they said.
The couple announced their engagement in July, little more than a year after announcing they were together.
They both posted heartfelt messages to each other at the time.
“You showed me how to smile again when I thought I had forgotten how, and you have made me happier than I ever thought I could be. You have made me a better partner, father and person and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you. I love you Mads xxx,” Rohan wrote at the time.
Madi posted the same image to Instagram with a similar message.
“You make me happier than I ever thought I could be,” she wrote.
“A kind of happiness I never knew was possible, and a kind of love I thought only existed in movies. You are my whole world and more, and forever with you is everything I could have ever dreamt of.
“I love you Gaz.”
