Bride left in shock after grooms makes heartbreaking confession after wedding ceremony

The brand new 2024 series of Married At First Sight: Australia kicked off with a bang this week, as a fresh batch of singletons are matched with their 'soulmates'.

The smash-hit reality dating show was first launched Down Under before UK and US instalments were produced due to its popularity.

And following a dramatic conclusion to the most recent British series, fans of the show have been dying to binge-watch another series of MAFS.

There prayers were answered earlier this week, however, after the Aussie version returned to our screens with a whole new host of brides and grooms.

Despite the initial excitement, viewers were left wiping away their tears just minutes into the new series landing, after one 'husband' made a shock confession to his 'wife' on their wedding day, after coming face-to-face for the first time.

Following a rather mundane morning meditation ceremony, new groom Timothy appeared downhearted about being paired with bride Lucinda.

After she arranged a 'spiritual, energy-type' blessing for their ceremony, he admitted he felt 'very uncomfortable'.

"I just can't get into it," he confessed to the cameras.

Despite his doubts, however, Timothy - dubbed the 'Tin Man' by his close friends due to his difficulty opening up about his feelings - shared a heartfelt admission with his bride, which subsequently brought the couple closer together.

Taking a break from the uber-staged photoshoot and gawping guests, Timothy opened up to his new wife about his family situation.

"They're all dead," he told her, adding that he'd previously lost his mother and younger brother, after which Lucinda is visibly blown away.

Timothy went on to reveal that his father had tragically passed away just six months before he and his bride exchanged vows.

"It's still pretty raw," he told her, struggling to hold in his emotions.

Later, during his groomsman speech, he opened up once again about his loss, filling Lucinda's family in on everything he'd been through, adding that his late father would have loved to meet his bride.

"He missed it by weeks," he began to break down, adding that he was left 'so alone' the night his father had passed.

Timothy went on to reveal that his pain had spurred him to take part in the match-making experiment, claiming: "I wanted to change my life."

Lucinda went on to tell viewers she was relieved that Timothy left comfortable enough to open upon about his family.

"I think she's really brave," she gushed.

E4 is yet to announce when MAFS Aus will air in the UK, but it is expected in the coming months.
