Home and Away star Luke Jacobz has penned an emotional social media post on what would have been his wedding day.
The actor, who plays Angelo Rosetta on the soap, was due to tie the knot with fiancée Raychel Stuart yesterday (November 12).
However, the plans were upended by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the couple haven't seen each other since the beginning of 2020 due to travel restrictions.
Taking to his Instagram page, Luke shared a collage of pictures of the two together, writing: "Right now it's 11:11am on 11/11/2020. Today, I was supposed to Marry the Love of my Life. Unfortunately COVID-19 has forced us to Postpone.
"NOT CANCEL," he added. "This year has been incredibly difficult for us because we haven't seen each other since 22nd January – 294 days or 7,055+hrs, which is 423,400+ minutes since I have held her hand, brushed the hair back over her ear, looked into her eyes, made her coffee, picked her up and hugged her, slapped her butt, slow danced with her, made her breakfast in bed, opened the car door for her, raced up the stairs with her, given her the pickle off my burger, shared popcorn with her, watched Jeopardy with her, held her face and kissed her..."
Luke went on to describe Raychel as "the most amazing, kind, funny, thoughtful, caring, selfless, generous, understanding woman I have ever met in my life".
"We have been through some [incredibly] difficult times," he continued. "This year has been harder than Thor's Hammer but we have worked really hard... and no matter where we are on this Earth, I will do my best to be her Starlord until the end of time."
"I love you Raychel. I'm sorry it's not today. I'm sorry it's not tomorrow. But it WILL BE!! I know we haven't had our amazing wedding just yet.. But to me.. from today.. you are my Wife."
