Inside one of Australia’s most glamorous (and wealthiest) families


An heiress to the world’s largest cleaning brush industry is engaged to the son of a multimillion-dollar superyacht broker, expanding the O’Neil family dynasty to new – and even wealthier – heights.

Lou Hay, whose late father Donald founded the company Hayco, is set to wed Jake O’Neil – the son of Rose Bay Marina owner Denis O’Neil.

Hay, a content creator, took to Instagram on Friday to share with her 28,000 followers that O’Neil had gotten down on one knee in a Sydney cafe surrounded by family and friends.

Her future sister-in-law Deborah Symond O’Neil, the daughter of Aussie Home Loans magnate John Symond, was in attendance, as well as her sister Simone, who flew home from overseas for the special occasion.

Deborah made headlines in Sydney’s society pages in 2018 when she married Jake’s brother Ned O’Neil in a lavish ceremony in the Whitsundays. 

The couple booked out Hamilton Island’s exclusive Qualia resort for the three-day long celebration.

Deborah, who has launched her own successful fashion retailer to rival the likes of Net-A-Porter, wore a custom-made $200,000 Christian Dior haute couture gown she had especially curated in Paris. 

The couple flew 120 guests, including the ten men and women in their wedding party, to North Queensland where they used the hashtag #Neborah on Instagram to show off the day’s festivities.

The trio often rub shoulders with socialite Nadia Fairfax, PR maven Montarna Pitt, The Daily Edited co-founder Alyce Tran, and her stylist sister Caroline.

Lou previously lived between Hong Kong and London with her long-time Norwegian fiance Nicolai Asplin.

The then-couple moved back to Sydney last year, where they threw a lavish engagement party at Bondi’s Icebergs, before breaking up within weeks. 

She said at the time that the relationship ‘had run its course’.

Lou then reunited with Jake, who she had previously dated years earlier.

Sadly, the fashion blogger’s father Donald passed away in 2019 from melanoma at age 76.

Lou uses her platform to regularly urge her followers to get their skin checked while warning about the dangers of tanning.
