When Zac Golebiowski thought of asking for his girlfriend to marry him, he imagined a beach proposal where he got down on one knee and proposed.
But after Mr Golebiowski lost his leg in a shark attack in 2006, that was no longer possible. On Saturday, when his girlfriend Jodie Edinger became his wife, it did not seem to matter.
The couple tied the knot in front of 120 guests at a vintage-inspired ceremony in Mandurah's Kingdom Hall.
It has been a difficult seven years for Mr Golebiowski, who lost his right leg above the knee to a great white while surfing near Esperance.
If not for the speedy actions of his brother Sam and some quick-thinking beachgoers who applied a tourniquet, the then 15-year-old would have died.
The part-time photographer had not had a girlfriend since the attack until he met Ms Edinger. He thought nobody would marry him after his leg amputation.
"I wake up now with Jodie in my life and can't wait to get into the day," Mr Golebiowski said. "Before, there was so much negativity."
He rehearsed the romantic beach proposal for months.
"I wanted to do the traditional thing and get down on one knee, but obviously I didn't," he said.
"Instead, I made a booklet of photos from our 18 months together, then asked Jodie to marry me."
Unable to resist the call of the waves, Mr Golebiowski returned to the surf on a body board, and is seen hopping down to his local break several times a week.
"It's in my blood and I'll always do it," he said. "But the thought of getting bitten again plays on my mind so I'm always careful about what conditions I surf in."
And his new wife said she would not dream of holding back her new husband.
"I think it's important for him because it's the one sport he can do," she said.
"I don't worry about him in the water."
