On the final night of their honeymoon, Matthew told his makeup artist wife about the death of a close friend.
"That was something that I hadn't really spoken about much, so it was quite a big step for me to trust her enough and open up and tell her that and she was really compassionate and kind and that's what really brought us together," Matthew, now 30, told 9Honey.
That night, the pair were able to take their relationship to the next level, thanks to Matthew finally opening up emotionally and letting himself be vulnerable.
"Last night I lost my virginity and it was a beautiful moment. I think it was worth the 29-year wait," he said the following morning.
Meanwhile, Lauren couldn't wipe the smile off her face.
