When Bunbury's Annette Cristopoulos married John McGrath earlier this month, it marked a special milestone for their family - with three generations of brides having tied the knot all within 10 months of each other.

The new Mr and Mrs McGrath exchanged vows at The Vines Resort and Country Club on January 10, and "absolutely loved" their relaxed, joyful ceremony surrounded by loved ones.

Only a month prior - on December 13, 2019 - her mother, Rita Crist, married Jeffrey 'Crackers' Dalley at Carilley Estate.

It was Rita's 80th birthday, a fact not lost on her 73-year-old first-time groom, who joked he was grateful to only have to remember one date on the calendar.

The couple travelled from their home in Kalgoorlie and celebrated their nuptials in 40-degree heat.

To complete the bridal trifecta, Annette's daughter, Rita Psychramis, married Tim Woods on March 29, 2019 at Caversham House.

The 30-year-old beamed with happiness as she walked down the aisle accompanied by her grandmother and her young daughter, Audriana.

While each couple added their own unique touches to their celebrations, the trio of brides leaned on each other during the wedding planning process - choosing to use a number of the same services for their respective big days.

Photographer Krystie Regnault, videographer Pavillon Studio, and celebrant Candice Bydder were called upon for all three weddings.

Mrs Bydder thanked all those who helped to make each wedding a success.

"We got to know them all so well. By the end of the third wedding, I think we all felt like we were a part of the family too," she said.

"Even though each ceremony was different, they shared a common value - the importance of family and a belief that true love can find you at any stage of life."
