‘A moment at our wedding that I’d like to share as it was very special, but was not shown,’ Alycia’s post began. 

‘While waiting for Mat, I took the opportunity to sit with his lovely family to introduce myself & start to get to know them!’

‘You can see Sue holding my hand tightly comforting me which meant so much as it helped me to feel okay. It’s the small things,’ she wrote.

Despite running late to the ceremony, viewers soon fell in love with the Melbourne-based plumber, with fans gushing over a special moment he shared with Alycia’s brother with special needs.

Sitting down on a set of lounge-style chairs, Mat immediately said with a warm smile: ‘It’s lovely to meet you mate.’

Alycia then promoted Eden to tell Mat a little about himself: ‘I live in South Australia and I’ve got Aspergers and a bit of autism,’ he told Mat, adding, ‘So I work at a workplace for people with a disability.’ 

Continuing the friendly chat, Mat told Eden: ‘I hope I can gain your trust too mate, because obviously letting your sister do something like this is a pretty big step… And I hope that you know your sister’s in very good hands.’

‘… And I look forward to spending time with you too mate,’ Mat said genuinely with a smile.

‘Yep, yeah, that’ll be good,’ Eden responded, appearing to get along with his sister’s new TV ‘husband’, later letting Mat hug him goodbye.

The moment was very special for Alycia, who told the cameras: ‘I feel like not everyone would have the patience or time for someone like my brother who does have a disability, so for him to go out of his way above and beyond, that’s just amazing.’
