Nathan Walker, the first Australian to ever play in an NHL game, score an NHL goal, and win a Stanley cup, married his longtime girlfriend Tayla Billinghurst on Saturday. Walker’s longtime teammate in Hershey, Chandler Stephenson, was one of the groomsman.
The event was held at the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney, Australia.
Nathan and Taylor posted posed photos after the wedding, as well as the couple’s photographer, Anna Turner.

Walker documented parts of his wedding on his Instagram Story, which includes a ripped and shirtless Stephenson combing his hair. There’s also Aussie singing and dancing.
The entire wedding party took a photo with Lillian Lyon, the wedding’s celebrant.

Walker’s older brother, Ryan, is believed to be Nathan’s best man.
The day has finally arrived, it’s wedding day for the most loveable couple in the world! Nathan and Tayla I’m beyond sorry that we couldn’t be there but I know you will both have the most amazing day. The friendship you both have shown me through the years isn’t something I will ever take for granted. I will never ever forget crashing weddings with you Tay, or being your first insta post, or the fact we screamed over our favourite red-head liking it! ;). The amount of times I would stay up on MSN talking to my favourite ninja turtle Nathanello just to see what’s up (and then to eventually send a message to his mum to tell her to call him haha) is something I’ll always remember. There is no one in this world more deserving of unconditional love than the both of you and I cannot wait to see how much more your love grows in the next chapter of your lives. I will be thinking of you all day, all weekend in fact, and will be eagerly awaiting the pictures from everyone there. I already know you’ll be stunning Tayla because you have the most beautiful soul! Have an exceptional day and evening and I cannot wait to see you both again! All the love in the world coming your way 💕💕 #ALLCAPS #WalkerWedding #WalkerDownTheAisle #NathAndTay #WeddingOfTheCentury #FromParisWithLove
