Branded the "most important match ever made" on the show, Matthew, a shy videographer from Queensland exchanged vows with Lauren, a New South Wales-based makeup artist who struggled to find men willing to commit in past relationships.
But while the chemistry was clear, 29-year-old Matt was hiding a huge secret from his bride that he needed to get off his chest before their first night together as man and wife.
Speaking to camera, he admitted: "Something I've never really told anyone is that I'm still a virgin."
"The last time I kissed a woman was about seven years ago," he continued, before revealing he has never even slept beside someone in bed.
But despite his nerves and reservations the introverted groom felt "immediately comfortable" on the altar beside Lauren, adding: "I got a bit lost in the moment."
After a smooth sailing ceremony and fun-filled reception where he mustered the courage to sing for his new love, Matt took Lauren aside and opened up to her about his biggest secret.
And as the experts predicted, the kind, nurturing makeup pro gave her man the reaction he was hoping for by saying: "It doesn't change anything."
"Matt being a virgin might just mean he'll need me to take the reins a bit," she told viewers, adding she felt a certain responsibility to take things slowly and make it special for her husband.
Struggling to contain his delight, Matt revealed a "weight had been lifted" from his shoulders.
