When Lachlan Batley and Laura Joseph got engaged in late February, they would've never expected how their actual wedding day would've unfolded.
The two were married at the Bathurst Presbyterian Church on Saturday afternoon, with only a handful of people in attendance, in line with coronavirus restrictions.
For those unable to attend, the ceremony was live-streamed via Facebook, with hundreds of people tuning in to watch the two dedicate their lives to each other.
The newlyweds had originally planned to get married in July, however, they decided to bring it forward by almost two months as there wasn't much to organise.
"We were planning on a July wedding but decided to move it up a tad because we no longer needed time to organise everything and everyone," Mr Batley said.
"It's kind of nice to get away from the social expectations of what a wedding needs to look like."
Originally, when strict coronavirus regulations were introduced in March, only five people could be in attendance - the couple, the celebrant and the witnesses.
But earlier this month with the easing of restrictions, 10 guests were allowed, which meant the couple could invite their parents to the ceremony.
"We were over the moon," Mr Batley said on the easing of restrictions.
"We never thought that when we were planning our wedding that we would be excited to only have 10 people.
"There was a lot less stress than a normal wedding, I'd imagine. But it was also so heartbreaking trying to pick five then 10 people. We'd love to have everyone."
While some couples may have delayed their wedding by several months hoping for eased restrictions, the couple - who are committed Christians - decided to go ahead anyway.
"Marriage is about our commitment to each other and God, and we wanted to get married knowing it's about us and God, not a flash fun party," he said.
