What We’ve Learned About Yachting From “Below Deck”
A Below Deck Mediterranean Chief Stew just said “I do.”
That’s right: Hannah Ferrier is now married, E! News can exclusively reveal. The reality TV star wed her partner of nearly four years, Josh Roberts, on March 26 in a boat-iful ceremony in Australia on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.
The bride wore a Velani bridal gown. Josh, meanwhile, honored his Scottish roots by wearing a kilt. His three groomsmen and Hannah’s father also sported the traditional garb. The bride and groom exchanged rings by Nicole Rose Fine Jewelry.
The couple’s 16-month-old daughter Ava Grace Roberts was naturally involved with their special day as one of their two flower girls. In an exclusive interview with E! News before the big day, Hannah revealed that her little one would be walking down the aisle in “a gorgeous little flower crown” with some assistance from Hannah’s mom.
Guests sipped on Gérard Bertrand Cote des Roses rosé wine at the wedding, which featured floral arrangements by Flower Wonderer. Kashaya & Co. was the wedding planner.
The ceremony itself was officiated by an “amazing” local celebrant named Caroline, Hannah said. “She’s just been fantastic. She’s so warm and kind but she also really understands our humor.” That, and the need to avoid a “stiff” ceremony,” she added. “I think even in the speech that she gives before she marries us, that the words ‘margarita’ and ‘tequila’ come up like twice.”
Caroline also told Hannah and Josh’s guests their “love story,” which the Bravo alum said began in a Sydney bar after she wrapped filming on season four of Below Deck Med. “We had a glass of wine and then we went for dinner the next night,” Hannah recalled, “and then we caught up for drinks after the races the night after that. And then we just spent, like, seven days seeing each other for something each day.”
Once they finally made the decision to spend an evening apart, Hannah said they still wound up watching the same TV show and texting about it the whole night. Josh wasn’t yet aware that she was a TV star herself, but when she did get around to telling him, the whole thing was no big deal. As Josh told E! News, “I think she’s pretty much who she is on the show, but it is obviously a show.”

Hannah was unceremoniously dismissed from Below Deck Med after season five, but she quickly set sail on a new adventure: motherhood. She and Josh welcomed Ava in 2020, shortly after they celebrated their two-year anniversary.
Now, Ava is nearly two years old herself. “She’s just started speaking, which is so cute,” Hannah said, revealing that her first word was “bubbles.”
But being the parent of a young daughter while planning a wedding (and running the Ocean International Training Academy!) isn’t easy. Hannah described her days as “hectic,” adding, “We had, basically, a disaster wedding planner who took on our wedding and then did nothing for six weeks. So this whole wedding has been planned in the last four weeks.”
Yes, four weeks. Hannah noted that Josh initially wanted to “scale it all back,” but she didn’t want to give up on her dream wedding. Luckily, she quickly found a new planner and together, their “sheer determination” started making things happen.
The reception was ultimately held at Hannah and Josh’s home. Some of her former Below Deck Med co-stars were in attendance, including Anastasia Surmava, who recently got engaged herself.
Now that they’ve said “I do,” the couple will soon head to Thailand for their honeymoon, where their main goal is to relax.
“Everyone’s like, ‘Oh, the nightclubs are open!’ Hannah said. “I’m like, ‘Are you f–king kidding me? We have a baby. We don’t want to go to nightclubs. We want to take a nap.'”
At this point, it’s well deserved!
