There is more than a touch of joie de vivre about Hayley Jensen these days.

The singer, who grew up in Canberra, has always been a sunny presence but her smile is especially broad.

One big reason is that she recently got married to her great love, Kris Severijns. The couple tied the knot on the beach at the Aanuka Beach Resort in Coffs Harbour.
