She was labeled a villain during her time on The Block NZ, alongside her twin Ali, but Julia Heaney enjoyed a lavish fairytale wedding when she married her partner Clinton Herring last month.

In an Instagram post, the reality star said she'd had an "amazing wedding" and thanked "everyone who made it epic".

The photo, taken outside Auckland's exclusive Northern Club, shows no expense was spared with the large bridal party sporting slick tuxedos and gowns by New Zealand designer Juliette Hogan.

The five bridesmaids can also be seen carrying luscious bouquets of giant white roses.

Julia and her twin sister Ali hit headlines last year when they became the first contestants ever to be sent home from The Block NZ, after host Mark Richardson staged an intervention, insisting the pair go and spend time with "people they love".

The twins, who were frequently portrayed as the villains of the reality series, became targets of severe online abuse, concerning Richardson and the show's producers.

The pair and their fellow Block contestants were left devastated last year when the North Shore properties they spent weeks building, struggled to reach their auction reserves.

The twins walked away with just $13,000 profit for their efforts, leaving them in third place behind Stacey and Yanita and Hamilton dads Andy and Nate.
