Lovebirds Anna Heinrich and 'The Bachelor' Tim Robards got married in a fairytale Italian wedding.
The couple met around five years ago on the show 'The Bachelor,' and got married during the weekend at the Masseria Potenti hotel in Puglia.
After meeting on the TV series, 31-year-old Heinrich and 35-year-old Robards are the first couple from the Australian 'Bachelor' reality series to get married. The couple took to Instagram to share their happiness and pictures of their wedding celebrations with all their fans and followers.
Robards revealed that Heinrich had also chosen to take up his last name and captioned the picture, "Introducing...Mrs. Robards."
Heinrich was seen wearing a gorgeous beaded gown which was made and designed by Australian designer Steven Khalil; the attire was paired with a traditional veil.
As reported by news.com.au, Khalil said that the dress sells at $15,000 and was off the rack.
"She said she's been a fan of the brand for a long time and she would love to work with us on her wedding gown. She had a strong idea of how she wanted to look," he revealed.
"Anna chose a piece that we had just finished, this beautiful piece for the showroom, and it hadn't been released in our new collection," he continued. "It's a fully hand-beaded gown with floral embellishments and there's a detachable skirt with a slimline dress underneath. She could take that off at the reception."
"Anna fell in love with the gown and we modified it a bit for her. She was great to work with and the process was quite seamless and simple," Khalil added.
When asked whether Heinrich had paid for the gown or whether it was a gift, Khalil shared, "What we often do is an agreement between both parties, which is confidential."
Heinrich was walked down the aisle by her father Les Heinrich as well as her older sister, Andrea Heinrich who sported a white slip bridesmaid dress.
Post the wedding ceremony, the couple also shared pictures of the pool-side soiree that they threw and captioned an image of the event, "pool party mayhem".
Anna beat 24 single ladies all vying for a place in Tim's heart including 'Bachelorette' Ali Oetjen. The pair moved in mid-2014 and are based out of Sydney.
"Moving in, I had to learn Tim’s ways and what he liked, and also what I like. Tim’s a really great communicator, so if there were any issues that we had, we would always talk it out. We’ve both got strong opinions and we like them to be heard, but the best thing for us is overcoming that," Heinrich told Stellar magazine.
Robards proposed to Heinrich with a diamond ring which is believed to be estimated at a whopping $173,000 while the couple was on vacation in Kimberley, Western Australia.
As reported by Stellar magazine, "My heart’s thumping. And I’m trying not to crash my drone and I’m also about to propose. And I say, You know what would be good right now? A bloody cold beer. And then I say, What would make it better for you? And she goes, I don’t know, a cold washer? So I say … What if I professed my love for you and said every moment in the last whatever years has been amazing? I was already on my knees. I reached in my pocket, and I had a little box, and she just started bawling," Robards shared.
