The Coniglio’s are a true AFL glamour couple and do everything with a sense of style.
They married in October last year against the stunning backdrop of the iconic St Mary’s Cathedral in Sydney.
They also treated guests to a custom-made chandelier to top off what was a perfectly picturesque wedding.
Rebecca, whose maiden name is Demlakian, wore a jaw-dropping pearl gown by the ultimate bridal designer, Steven Khalil.
Stephen has almost 34,000 followers on his Instagram page while Rebecca’s page looks like its belong to an Insta ‘influencer’.
In 2019, Coniglio signed a monster contract for the AFL club, believed to be worth about $7 million over seven years, and was also named captain for the 2020 season.
The midfielder replaced long-term favourites Phil Davis and Callan Ward who had worked in tandem since the Giants’ inception in 2012.

At the end of 2021, Toby Greene and Josh Kelly were elevated and shared captaincy duties with Coniglio.
But ahead of 2023, the club dumped both Coniglio and Kelly and announced Greene as their standalone skipper for the 2023 season.
Coniglio and Kelly are now the joint vice-captains and it’s suited Coniglio.
This year he had one of his better seasons, playing 25 games and racking up over 700 disposals at an average of 24.5 a game.
That figure is the 29-year-old’s best in an AFL season since he was drafted by GWS back in 2011 with the No.3 pick.
He was a key cog in the Giants’ rise up the ladder, as well, which almost took them all the way into a grand final.
The Giants’ meteoric rise could only be stopped by eventual premier Collingwood, but it was by the barest of margins, with their year ending in a one-point thriller in the preliminary final.
