Nathan Walker married his long time girlfriend, Tayla Billinghurst, at the Royal Botanic Garden in Sydney, Australia Saturday evening. Among the guests in attendance were fellow Capital, Chandler Stephenson, and his girlfriend, Tasha Maltmann who had flown in to Australia for the occasion. Stephenson was also part of Walker’s wedding party.
Walker shared an Instagram photo of the happy couple.
His new wife, Tayla, shared another picture of them, overlooking the water. Wedding pictures were taken by Anna Turner, a wedding photographer who had been nominated in Capture Mags Australasian’s Top Emerging Photographer of The Year.
Below are the wedding portraits of the Tayla’s bridesmaids and Nathan’s groomsmen, also taken by Anna Turner.
Walker himself had taken some Instagram video, including one overlooking Sydney, the guys in his wedding party getting ready, the ride to the wedding, the reception venue, and dancing.
His marriage tops a remarkable 12 months for Walker, which included becoming the first Australian National to play in the NHL, a release and return to the Washington Capitals organization, and last month, winning the Stanley Cup.

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
