Home and Away stars Jessica Grace Smith and Benedict Wall tie the knot after 10 years together

Summer Bay steals another couple of hearts!

Congratulations are in order for former Home and Away stars Jessica Grace Smith and Benedict Wall who are officially husband and wife after marrying in an intimate New Zealand ceremony last month.
The couple, who have been together since 2010, took to Instagram this week to announce the news and share stunning photos from their big day.
Jessica, who played Casey Braxton's (Lincoln Younes) girlfriend Denny Miller on the long-running soap from 2014 to 2015, posted a beautiful snap of the newlyweds kissing, under a tree.
The actress simply captioned the shot: "08.02.20".
Over on his own Instagram account, Benedict – known for playing Alf Stewart's grandson Duncan in 2016 – shared a photo of himself holding the hand of his new bride.
"Here we go... "Don't go back to sleep," he wrote.
The couple also uploaded photos of the their wedding bands as well as the bridal party.

Home and Away stars past and present were quick to offer their congratulations to the newlyweds, with Tai Hara, Demi Harman, Tessa De Josselin, Erika Heynatz and Cassie Howarth all sending their well wishes.
The couple met in Auckland, New Zealand in 2010 before moving to Australia to pursue their acting careers.

In an interview with New Zealand's Woman's Day last year, Jessica said she told her mum that he was "The One" within months – despite Benedict taking eight years to propose.
Benedict also recalled the moment he proposed to Jess, admitting it was "hard to get the words out."
"I was really nervous. We woke up at 6am and it was a perfect day. I asked Jess if she would like to go for a quick swim before we jumped back in the car to drive back to Sydney."
Benedict took her to an empty beach and, when Jess turned around, she saw him down on one knee.
"He was quite teary, quite emotional," she admitted.
