IT WAS THE FAIRY­TALE con­clu­sion to a love story five years in the mak­ing as Anna Hein­rich, 31, and Tim Ro­bards, 35, wed in early June at ho­tel Masse­ria Po­tenti in Italy’s Puglia. “I’m a very lucky man,” posted Tim. “I can’t be­lieve I got to marry the most gor­geous hu­man I know! What a jour­ney ... and it’s only just be­gun!”

The cou­ple, who met and fell in love while cam­eras rolled on the first sea­son of the Aus­tralian Bach­e­lor in 2013, spared no ex­pense, an es­ti­mated $250,000, cel­e­brat­ing with fam­ily and friends at the in­ti­mate venue, which also hosted the re­cep­tion and “Re­cov­ery Party” the next day.

The pair shared pic­tures of their spe­cial day on June 9. “We made a de­ci­sion to put out some of our first pho­tos on so­cial me­dia,”

Anna, a lawyer, told Stel­lar mag­a­zine. “For the day it­self, we just want to keep it be­tween us and our fam­ily and friends.”

Once rings had been ex­changed, Tim sim­ply posted “In­tro­duc­ing ... Mrs Ro­bards” on In­sta­gram. His sweet ded­i­ca­tion was met with thou­sands of well-wishes, in­clud­ing one from Bach­e­lor host Osher Güns­berg who wrote, “You did it! Con­grats you two!” •

“Made sure the mar­ti­nis were shaken, not stirred,” quipped a Bond-like Tim (in Cal­i­bre).

The bride and groom ar­rived at their re­cep­tion in a vin­tage Fiat 500.

Sealed with a kiss, the cou­ple say, “I do.”

“Anna wore a Fiora style Steven Khalil wed­ding gown that re­tails off-ther­ack for $15,000.

Ta­bles were dressed with eu­ca­lyp­tus leaves, white roses and Baby’s Breath. Mel­bourne-based Tobi sang at the re­cep­tion.

Lawyer Anna was 26 when chi­ro­prac­tor Tim pre­sented her with his fi­nal rose on The Bach­e­lor in 2013.

“There’s only one way to re­cover ... “posted Tim along­side this pho­to­graph.

Af­ter in­tro­duc­ing the world to “Mrs Ro­bards,” Tim and Anna danced to the mu­sic of a brass band.

“CHEERS,” Anna posted on June 10, adding “# MY HUBBY.”

“Squad goals,” Anna said of her with dad Les and sis­ters Char­lotte (left) and An­drea.
