Gone are the days of exchanging leather-based gifts come a third anniversary, made way instead for the Instagram dedication; an appropriate marker of appreciation for every year of marriage.
The opportunity to shout about your love from the rooftops of social media platforms has become the ultimate show of affection.
And, it's exactly how Sunrise presenter Edwina Bartholomew chose to pay tribute to her husband, Neil Varcoe, on their third wedding anniversary.
The Channel Seven star shared a stunning throwback photo to their wedding day, writing: "Three years married. And 10 years in captivity, as @neilwrites just described it."

The gorgeous post was flooded with well-wishes including from her fellow former Sunrise host Sam Armytage who wrote: "Happy anni lovebirds xx"
Edwina wed her long-term partner Neil in 2018 in an intimate ceremony on their farm near Mudgee in rural NSW.
Sharing another nod to her dress in her post today, which belonged to her grandmother, Edwina wrote: "Photo • @edwinarobertson Flowers • @theflowerdrum Dress • my grandmother's, lovingly altered by @cappellazzocouture."

The couple have since welcomed their first child together, daughter Molly, who was born in 2019.
Speaking to TV WEEK Edwina opened up about her tumultuous first year parenting alongside Neil.
"It's been a strange year for us, because in many ways, it's been really good timing," the 38-year-old said.
"My husband was made redundant around the same time the lockdown happened. So, we actually ended up with a couple of months where we had time as a family unit, that we never would have had otherwise."

Edwina admits she found the world of parenthood a baptism of fire
.
"I found the first couple of months quite overwhelming," she admitted.
"Just the all-consuming nature of it – and I was prepared mentally. But I found that first initial stage difficult. I think I was just surprised by the emotion of it all. And the love too, and maybe just the love mixed with the exhaustion, the expectation and the pressure to do a really good job of it.
