Locky and Irena shared sweet tributes to each other alongside a series of photos from their getaway.
"A year with you ❤️ @locklangilbert. What a first year we have had, we’ve had our highs and lows but ultimately our love grew stronger and I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with you," the 32-year-old captioned her post.
"I feel like the luckiest girl in the World, my heart is so full right now ❤️."
Locky shared an equally gushing post about Irena to his 124,000 Instagram followers, saying he is proud of his girlfriend for pushing herself outside her comfort zone.
"1 whole year with you by my side. Now, we all know I’m not the best with words, but I can’t explain just how amazing our first year has been and I can not wait for many more together. I love you so much babe," he wrote.
"To top it all off at @salsalisningaloo was just the perfect way to end and start out second year together.
"I don’t know what impresses me more, the 10 meter whale shark or just how amazing @irena_srbinovska is. She has pushed her self so far out of her comfort zone and I couldn’t be more proud. Here’s to more crazy adventures together."
The happy couple enjoyed sunset dinners on the beach and diving with whale sharks during their few days of "serenity and sun" at the resort, where prices start at $749 per night.
Since the pair started their new chapter together, they have enjoyed an epic seven-month road trip around the country, soaking up as much sun and adventure as possible.
But as picture perfect as their life looks, the couple admits their first year has seen them face some “amazing highs and devastating lows”.
Things got off to a rocky start for Irena when she left behind her friends and family in Melbourne to make the move to join her beau in Perth.
Suddenly thrust into the spotlight, the 31-year-old nurse had to deal with intense online bullying at the same time her father, Vasco, suffered a medical emergency. Lockdowns caused by the pandemic meant Irena couldn’t be by his side. The stress led to devastating consequences.
“During our first few months together I, unfortunately, suffered a miscarriage,” Irena tells WHO.
“But Locky was my absolute rock and having his support made me love him even more.”
Locky wants people to think twice before they lash out at the couple.
“We are just normal people and while we put ourselves in the spotlight, you never know what is going on in our lives that day,” the 30-year-old adventure guide says.
“If you have to say something, then direct it at me, not my girl,” he protectively adds.
