Tim Robards and Anna Heinrich
The original Bachelor couple tie the knot in Italy with glamour, sunshine and style
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.
