Melbourne legend Garry Lyon (and his partner Nicky Brownless), SEN owner Craig Hutchison, former Richmond and Western Bulldogs champion Nathan Brown, veteran AFL journalist Damian Barrett, and Danielle Frawley (the mother Angus’s girlfriend) are all reportedly on the guest list as well.
“Jim’s going around again so second time up. He’s marrying the lovely Lisa who’s planned it all,” Brownless said.
“Got the wedding on the Friday and then on the Saturday going to Rottnest Island.”
Brayshaw was previously married to Sarah and has four sons (Henry, George, Johnathon and Frederick). Christie was previously engaged to TV celebrity Jamie Durie and also has two children from another relationship.
