Ash Barty has tied the knot with her long term fiancé Garry Kissick in a beautiful intimate ceremony in Queensland.

The 26-year-old announced the heartwarming news by sharing a beautiful image of her and Kissick with a simple caption “Husband & Wife”.

The adorable couple, who have been together for seven years, announced their engagement in November 2021.

At the time of their engagement, Barty confessed that she was debating on whether or not she should share the news.

“Garry and I have been together for a long time now and I had designed the ring with him,” she previously said.

“We are obviously excited now for the next chapter. We were at home on the couch with the puppies.

“It was very much just us. It was perfect for us. Everyone has their unique way of doing it.”

She also said the wedding will be small and intimate with close family and friends.

“It will be very low-key, very small, pretty chill, for Garry and I, just the people we love the most, people who have been impactful and important in our lives.

“My nieces and nephews will be front and centre, I wouldn’t live it down if they weren’t, they will be dress shopping before I will be.’’

Their wedding comes just a few short months after Barty shocked the tennis world by announcing her retirement.

“I will be retiring from tennis. It’s the first time I’ve actually said that out loud and it’s hard to say,” she said in an Instagram video.

“But I’m so happy and I’m so ready and I just know at the moment in my heart for me as a person, this is right.

“I’m so grateful to everything that tennis has given me. It’s given me all of my dreams, plus more.

“But I know that the time is right now for me to step away and chase other dreams. And put the racquets down.”
