Gemma and Richie McCaw celebrate one year wedding anniversary

The loved-up pair are going from strength to strength as they celebrate one year as husband and wife.

Gemma and Richie McCaw have celebrated their one year wedding anniversary. Gemma took to Instagram to share a heartfelt message to her husband.

"Happy 1st Wedding Anniversary," she wrote. "Thank you for being the most kind, generous and loving husband I could ever ask for. You make me happy every day and I can't wait for the rest of our lives together. I will love you today, tomorrow and forever."

The former All Blacks captain married his Black Sticks hockey player beau in a lavish ceremony in Wanaka in front of 170 family and friends. The notoriously private McCaw chose to share the day with Woman's Day readers.

Richie told the magazine "We look to our parents – they've been married 30 years plus. Both of us were lucky with our upbringings and they've created an amazing foundation."

In celebration of their anniversary, he posted an image from their wedding to his Facebook page.

"Happy 1st Wedding anniversary to my beautiful wife. Nice looking back at some photos from our special day a year ago," he wrote.

Gemma is currently training for the Red Bull Defiance race which she will compete in this Saturday. It is a two-day, 142km multisport event.

Richie competed in the mountain bike leg of the same race back in 2016.
