Aisle be there for wed­ding

Herald Sun - Switched On - - ON THE BOX -

If Home And Away’s set de­sign­ers are ever look­ing to make ex­tra cash be­yond their small screen gig, can we sug­gest they moon­light as wed­ding plan­ners?

With Chan­nel 7 set to air the soap’s lat­est walk down the aisle next Mon­day, ac­tor Alec Snow – who plays the happy groom – thinks prac­tise made for the most per­fect out­door nup­tials.

With colour­ful stream­ers float­ing in the Sum­mer Bay breeze, and the new­ly­weds Matt Page and his beau­ti­ful bride Evie (Phillipa North­east, both pic­tured above) shar­ing a ro­man­tic dance un­der twin­kling fairy lights, Snow tells Switched On it was the “happy end­ing” his char­ac­ter, and the cou­ple, de­served.

“There’s some­thing Home and Away does re­ally well, and that’s wed­dings, be­cause they’ve done so many of them,” Snow says.

“[His char­ac­ter] Matt’s had a tough up­bring­ing and strug­gled with feel­ing like he’s in­ad­e­quate. This is the happy end­ing Matt’s wanted since we first saw him in the show. His lit­tle sis­ter El­lie (Darcey Wil­son) is there, the woman he loves is there, and he’s turned his life around.”

And who could be more fit­ting to be the cel­e­brant than Home and Away’s most beloved and long­est-stand­ing char­ac­ter, Alf Ste­wart (Ray Meagher).

The only down­side, Snow re­vealed, was pas­sion­ately lock­ing lips with his TV bride right in front of the vet­eran ac­tor.

“It was weird,” he says, chuck­ling when asked about the ro­man­tic mo­ment, bound to set fans swoon­ing.
