The Home and Away set has often been a breeding ground for love to blossom between actors.

And one of the most memorable romances between the show’s co-stars that spilled over into real life is that of Rebecca Breeds (Ruby) and Luke Mitchell (Romeo).

The Summer Bay golden couple, who are now based in the US, have celebrated Valentine’s Day after nine years of marriage.

Sharing a loved-up selfie of the pair together to commemorate the day, Rebecca penned: “‘Each day is Valentine’s Day’ 🎶 I love you more.”

Luke shared his own post and wrote: “Nothing says “romance” like a serious game of Putt-Putt… Happy V Day lovers!!”

Rebecca and Luke first met on May 23, 2009 at a mutual friend’s housewarming party and “clicked instantly.”

Queensland native Luke had just moved to Sydney for his Home and Away role. Rebecca, already a favourite on the show, had no idea the man she described as “this blond vision” would turn out to be Summer Bay’s newest star.

“I felt like I already knew him. It was absolutely a feeling that we had lived another life together,” she told New Idea. “I knew immediately after the party that what I had with Luke was that soulmate thing.”

Their love was meant to be and in 2013, the couple tied the knot in a picturesque wedding in NSW’s Kangaroo Valley Bush Retreat.

They exchanged emotional vows they’d written themselves in front of 70 of their closest friends and family.

Luke promised: “I will be guided by love, not fear. I will take care of you, support you, honour you, listen to you, inspire you… and love you completely forever.”

Clearly moved, a tearful Rebecca responded, “I will be your greatest fan and encouragement, holding your hand and cheering you on through everything.

“I will look on the bright side of life. I will trust and honour you as the head of our family and our household. All else will be secondary to our relationship. I will venture into the wilds of this world with you and I will be your safe place of love, into the next world and beyond.”

Since departing the sandy shores of Summer Bay, Rebecca and Luke have made the move overseas to chase the Hollywood dream.
