Frances Abbott and her husband of almost three months, Sam Loch, have renewed their vows in front of family and friends at a beach-side ceremony in Sydney.

Tony Abbott's fitness blogger daughter and her ex-Olympic rower husband first wed in a surprise ceremony on Valentine's Day.

During their Instagram announcement of their marriage, the groom did reveal "the celebratory component isn¡¯t for a couple of months", and it seems Saturday was the day for it, with photos of the ceremony published by Daily Mail Australia.

The couple were spotted posing for pictures with their bridal party which included the former PM, who donned a black suit in-line with the all-black dress code.

Mr Abbott also wore a big smile and was seen kissing his daughter's forehead in some of the poses for the photographer.

Also grinning during the?barefoot photoshoot was mother-of-the-bride, Margie Abbott, who looked chic in an?off-the-shoulder black dress.

The bride sported a white two-piece outfit plus a veil, while the groom opted for white trousers paired with a floral shirt.

On Valentine's day, after only knowing her beau for three months, Frances told followers she was officially "Loched down".

Posting an black and white snap of the couple kissing near a window, the 26-year-old wrote: "YOU. Happy Valentine¡¯s Day?@samloch?Always and forever", adding the hash-tag "you may now kiss the bride".

Meanwhile the 34-year-old groom told family and friends: "The celebratory component isn¡¯t for a couple of months, but we made it official in the eyes of the law today."

"We¡¯re the motherf***ing Mighty Morphin Power Rangers of love."

The bride wore a simple strapless white a-line gown and a beaming smile, with her hair left out without any of the usual tiaras or veils. While the groom wore a simple white shirt and trouser combo.

The couple's whirlwind romance began just?three months ago.

However, there were a few raised eyebrows when the pair announced their engagement just two months in but?more for the fact the bride's father was quick to congratulate the pair.

The former PM's reaction ruffled feathers due to his "No" stance on the Same-Sex Marriage debate and his views on the "sanctity of marriage".
