Nothing brings Summer Bay together quite like a wedding. Favourites Tori and Christian this week tie the knot in a beautiful backyard wedding in front of their loved ones.
Fans waiting to see Tori (Penny McNamee) and Christian's (Ditch Davey) big day won't be disappointed. The happy couple say their 'I dos' while good friends Marilyn (Emily Symons) and Leah (Ada Nicodemou) and Tori's brother Justin (James Stewart) watch on. And Tori's baby Grace is there for the intimate occasion too.
"When Tori's wedding day finally arrives, she is in a blissful bubble of excitement, joy and happiness," Penny, 38, tells TV WEEK. "She has waited a long time for this moment!"
As fans recall, it hasn't been an easy road to Tori and Christian's big day. They were engaged, only to be torn apart when Christian chose to help patient, Rachel (Marny Kennedy) recover from a horror skydiving accident, over committing to his wedding.
Slowly, the two doctors rebuilt their relationship, with Christian eventually asking Tori to marry him while they were both at work. Seize the moment!
And this week, the lead up to the wedding is not without drama. Tori asks Justin to walk her down the aisle, but he initially refuses.
"Justin initially says no to walking Tori down the aisle because he would be too emotional and he fears that he'd simply be a blubbering mess… and the day isn't about him," James, 45, tells TV WEEK.
And there are further blows when Tori's brother Brody (Jackson Heywood) can't make it and neither can her half-sister Raffy (Olivia Deeble). Eventually, Justin realises, he must step up and give Tori away.
Speaking about the backyard ceremony, Penny says it's "the perfect way to celebrate Tori and Christian's love for each other".
"It's simple, but so moving and very meaningful," she says, adding it was "a perfect autumn day" (when they filmed the episode), the sun was warm and you could feel the love."
