Frances Abbott, the body-building daughter of former prime minister Tony Abbott, has wed her Olympic rower fiancé, Sam Loch after a three-month engagement.

The 26-year-old, who celebrated the marriage equality win by getting engaged, married Loch on Valentines Day.

She announced the news in a post on Instagram, showing her kissing Loch in what appeared to be a registry.

"Happy Valentine's Day [Sam Loch] Always and forever," she captioned the image, with the hashtags, "loched down", "you may now kiss the bride" and "f**k yes".

The happy groom also posted a photo of the couple, showing the bride in a simple, strapless white cocktail dress, and him in a white shirt and grey trousers with no tie.

"The celebratory component isn't for a couple of months, but we made it official in the eyes of the law today," he said on Instagram. "We're the motherf**king Mighty Morphin Power Rangers of love."

Abbott is a fitness blogger and recently competed in a body-building competition, while Loch, 34, is a weightlifter who competed in the 2008 and 2012 Olympics.
