Jade & Ridge

The final couple to enter the MAFS experiment was Ridge and Jade.

Ready to bid farewell his party-boy lifestyle, Ridge hopes to find a serious and loving relationship like his parents. Meanwhile, Jade is a mother to 8-year-old Veronica and given her single mum-status, she has struggled to find a serious relationship.

The pair seemed to hit it off at the wedding, but Jade has concerns her new husband isn’t mature.

Madeleine & Ash

MAFS Intruder couple Ash and Madeleine are bound to turn heads this season.

During the wedding events, Madeleine received numerous psychic downloads from her ‘guides’ which made for some awkward moments between the pair. Despite this, Ash seemed confident there was potential for a connection between them.

But this confidence soon faded as Ash became more “frustrated” and confused by his wife’s behaviour. Despite this, he wrote stay while Madeleine wrote leave during their first commitment ceremony.

A mere 24 hours later, Ash regretted his decision and exited the experiment.

Stephen & Michael

Although Michael’s initial match unexpectedly exited the MAFS experiment, it may have been divine intervention as Stephen and Michael seem to be a match made in heaven.

Both hailing from big families, the newlyweds are more than ready to start a family of their own.

The connection and attraction was evident from the moment they laid eyes on each other. We cannot wait to see how their relationship will progress within the experiment.

Lauren & Jonathan

While most people try to run from red flags, Lauren admits she runs straight for them. In an attempt to break old habits, she has asked the experts for help in finding a husband who is calm and level-headed.

She found just that in Jonathan follows a strict daily health and exercise routine, even spending the morning of his wedding exercising while Lauren overslept, applied last minute fake tan and forgot her bouquet at her accommodation.

After the rose-coloured glasses wore off the next day, Lauren began to fear her new husband was “boring.”

Andrea & Richard

Richard, 62, who believes age is just a number and Andrea, 51, whose as equally young at heart, are the oldest couple to walk down the MAFS aisle.

The connection and attraction was immediate for the lovebirds, who danced a little silly for their first dance as a ‘married’ couple and couldn’t keep their hands off one another during the honeymoon.

We cannot wait to see what Andrea and Richard bring to the MAFS experiment.

Ben & Ellie

All was smooth sailing for MAFS newlyweds Ben and Ellie, both were stunned by who the experts had paired them with. As an added bonus, they ticked off each others desire for a partner keen on adventure.

Ellie, a 32-year-old nurse and Ben, a 39-year-old tour guide – could they be the perfect match?

Ellie’s cousin Jordan has his doubts and wasn’t scared to voice these concerns…

Natalie & Collins

Natalie, 32, has had plenty of experience in relationships but her newly paired MAFS ‘husband’ Collins, 28, has never been in a relationship. The experts hope her knowledge in romance will help Collins come out of his shell.

Their relationship started to go awry when Collins became overwhelmed by his new wife’s intense and enthusiastic personality. This downward spiral continued leading to Nat wanting to exit the experiment during the first dinner party but returned to give the ‘marriage’ one more try.

Believing Collins was putting on a “Oscars” worthy-performance, Nat ended her time in the experiment and therefore her relationship with Collins.

Jayden & Eden

Jayden, 26, is a professional kickboxer who often gets prematurely judged by his career and appearance. However, this softie who loves cuddles has been with Eden, 28, a recruitment manager on MAFS 2024.

Despite both living in the Gold Coast, mere minutes away from each other, Jayden and Eden have never crossed paths.

The relationship experts may have made a heavenly match with these two, after they ticked off box after box for one another.

Jack & Tori

Can self-proclaimed ‘alpha’ and self-confessed ‘control freak’ find love on MAFS? In the second episode, viewers were introduced to Jack and Tori.

From the vows, Jack knew his new wife would “challenge” him but he is confident he will “sort her out.” Meanwhile, Jack ticked off all the right boxes for Tori.

Timothy & Lucinda

Dubbed ‘the tin man’ by his friends, Timothy is hoping someone might find his heart in the MAFS experiment. While there was an initial shock when he discovered his bride, Lucinda, was a spiritual soul – which was not on his wish list.

Despite an interesting wedding ceremony and an “awkward” photoshoot, Timothy began to admire Lucinda’s kind and caring nature. There is hope for these two after all.

Cassandra & Tristan

The next bride 30-year-old Cassandra from Queensland was paired with 30-year-old entertainment manager Tristian from Sydney. While nerves got the better of Tristan at the ceremony, all fears melted away during the reception when everyone fell in love with Cassandra’s dad, Moddy.

Both family-oriented and cheerful people, Cassandra and Tristan seemed to be matched perfectly as they headed to their honeymoon in McLaren Vale wine region in South Australia.

Despite only knowing each other for a short amount of time, Tristan surprised his new wife with flowers and chocolate for her birthday.

Sara & Tim

The first match to grace the MAFS 2024 season is 29-year-old nutritionist from Sydney, Sara and Tim, a 31-year-old online business owner from the Gold Coast.

Initially, this was a match made in heaven with Tim sweeping Sarah off her feet after greeting her in Spanish, with Sarah originally being from Colombia. A steamy wedding photoshoot is later followed by a disastrous reception when Sarah holds huge concerns her new husband may not be over his ex-partner.

The honeymoon didn’t reignite any flames either… Can there be any redemption for Sara and Tim?
