Lyn telling Flick to put her crush on Marc behind her.
Lyn telling Joe she isn't doing his speech and that he'll just have to get better.
It's Steph's wedding day and she starts the day drinking champers and bonding with her. Michelle asks what its like to be Mrs Marc Lambert and Steph reminds her that she isn't married yet! Steph thanks them for the help they have given her over the past six months with the whole Woody thing before going and getting them a present – a pair of earrings she'd like them to wear at the wedding. Flick in return gives her a sapphire pin to wear as part of the something old etc routine.
Libby arrives with her dress and they reminisce about Libby's wedding day before Libby tells Susan to get her essentials so they can assist at the Scully's!
Lyn is starting to panic and Michelle is surprised at how calm Steph is and remarks that she thought Steph would have taken off on her bike by now!
STEPH: No, I've found true happiness brings calm ‘Chelle. I don't think anything could faze me today.
Lyn comes back in telling everyone when they are getting make up done but Steph reminds her she's got the order wrong and takes her into the kitchen for a cuppa. However, they run into Connor and so Lyn goes over the seating plan with him…just to be sure he knows what is happening especially given the attitude some of the Lambert's have with them. Steph chastises her but Lyn replies that it is true, and adds that although she may have won round Chloe.
LYN: And I guess she's not the only one born a snob.
Connor confirms that he has everything under control then when she returns to the livingroom, she almost has a heart attack at the colour Michelle is painting her nails in until she reminds her mum that it is the same colour as Steph's when Joe, Libby and Susan enter.
SUSAN: Isn't it scary wonderful being mother of the bride?
Lyn replies that she just wants everything to be perfect and Susan assures her it will and all the preparation has been done and the only thing left is for Lyn to enjoy it.
In the kitchen, Libby asks how Steph is doing and tells Steph how she was on her wedding day including not being able to eat. Steph replies she has been able to eat “the meal of a condemned woman”. Libby then hands over to Steph her garter as part of the something old routine, which Steph accepts and the two of them hug.
Marc's best man is none other than dastardly lawyer Tim Collins and he asks his cousin if he is ready for the big day and jokingly says he has a get away car ready and waiting! Marc reminds him that the best man is meant to reassure the groom before Tim says that the day should begin at the pub…before the axe falls! Marc tells him that Steph isn't the nagging type but Tim replies that wives change when they get married. Tim again wants to go to the pub even if Marc doesn't but he reminds Tim that they have flowers for the button holes to collect first, so instead he wants details of the bridesmaids because as best man he gets first pick…and wants to know if there are any worth picking!
Lyn is still in panic mode because Dee hasn't turned up with the flowers yet so Flick suggests some champers to calm everyone's nerves down. Dee eventually arrives with the flowers and Lyn tells everyone what the different flowers are and what they mean. Dee wonders where Steph is, doing her make up, and then heads to the bathroom to see her.
Lib remarks to Flick that she'll be next to get married and is there anyone but she replies that she'd rather wait a while before disappearing through to the kitchen with the flowers. Lyn jokes that Flick is more nervous than the bride!
Steph comes off the phone just as Dee enters. Dee tells her that she looks absolutely gorgeous before noticing that Steph looks a bit down and wonders why given this is her wedding day and the start of a new life. Steph tells her the result of the call she's just taken – confirming that she isn't pregnant.
Susan tells Lyn as she does the finishing touches to the bridesmaids that she needs to go and get herself ready. Connor makes an excuse to talk to Michelle and they head through to the laundry room where he asks her to “test” him on the seating plan arrangements for the wedding. Michelle wonders why she needs to test him since he could simply just read the names from the list as people arrive and given Connor doesn't want to admit he can't read, replies that he doesn't want to look like an amateur. As she tests him, he gets every one wrong and she wonders if he's looked at it at all and he lies by saying that Michelle's beauty is distracting him.
Back in the livingroom, the ladies wonder who the best man is (and if he is cute) but all that Steph knows is that it is a cousin of Marc's.
DEE: I'm sure with that genetic line he's going to be gorgeous.
Steph says she'll see him soon as he is late to pick up the flowers. Dee tells Flick that she has first shout on him being head bridesmaid.
Through in the laundry room Michelle continues to help Connor with the seating arrangements and back in the livingroom there is a knock at the door. The ladies get all excited until the guest enters and they aren't exactly pleased to see who the best man is. Tim uses his charm to try and win the ladies over but they aren't impressed and asks for what he came for – the flowers – because Marc is waiting in the car.
Despite it being bad luck to see each other before the wedding, Steph runs out to where Marc is sitting in the car. He wonders if everything is okay and Steph tells him that she heard from the doctors and that she isn't pregnant and apologises to him. Marc replies that wasn't the reason he was marrying her although it does look like he's just been taken off death row. As they hug, Flick comes down the steps to tell her Jack is on the phone wanting to talk to her, so she kisses him and happily tells him that she'll see him at the alter. Marc looks wistfully on as Steph runs past Flick and Tim returns to the car.
TIM: Honestly Marc, bride and head bridesmaid, I don't know how you choose.
Dee takes pictures of the bridesmaids and Susan comments that they all look so beautiful. Connor tells Michelle that she looks beautiful as she sits down next to him. Just as Lyn has told Dee she can't make any coffee because she doesn't want any accidents, something happens to Flick's dress sending Lyn into panic mode. Susan comes to her rescue by taking Flick off to her house for emergency repairs. Steph comes off the phone from talking to Jack and asks Lyn if they can have a quick chat.
Tim has finally got Marc to the pub and they charge their glasses before Tim asks Marc to set him up with Flick once the wedding is over. Marc casually replies that Flick is out of his league and Tim takes this as a challenge announcing that by the end of the day she will be eating out of his hand!
MARC: I wouldn't bet on it.
TIM: Mate, if anybody is going to succeed there it will be me.
Susan finishes doing the emergency repair to Flick's dress and noticing that she seems a bit on edge, asks if everything is okay with her. Flick replies that she is just getting used to the idea of Steph being married and Susan tells her about when her own sister got married and one of the things was gaining a brother. She then asks Flick if she likes Marc and playing it cool, Flick replies that he is okay. Susan finishes the repair and adds that she will find the man of her dreams soon.
Lyn has found out about Steph not being pregnant and Steph adds that she'd rather couples got to know each other properly before they thought about having kids. Lyn starts to get teary and Steph tells her not to or she will start and Lyn warns her not to or she'll ruin her make up. Lyn does the finishing touches to Steph's headdress trying hard not to get emotional. Steph winds her mum up by saying that she'll be a wedding veteran by the time all her daughters get married.
LYN: I want Felicity to elope and Michelle, she can join a nunnery!
STEPH: Right. Well I think your chances of Flick eloping is about right but feisty little ‘Chelle joining a nunnery I don't know.
Lyn then says it is time and heads through to the livingroom to introduce the bride to everyone gathered.
LYN: Ladies and gentlemen, may I present the bride.
Steph then comes into the livingroom where lots of ‘oh's' and ‘ah's' are heard.
Marc stares into the water and Rosie asks Tim if he is okay. Tim replies that it is just the groom being nervous and Rosie too admits to having nerves before weddings too. Tim offers her his hipflask to help cure those nerves and Rosie initially declines but after Tim takes a swig, she too has some.
The camera then cuts to Marc and he looks nervous…extremely nervous.
Connor gets his chance to put his seating plan training into practice when he seats John & Chloe Lambert and they look at Marc as they make their way to the front row of the seats.
Tim decides to offer Dee some assistance in finding her seat but it isn't exactly welcome and she politely tells him to get lost.
Lyn and Susan arrive and are amazed by how great the venue looks as they too head down to their seats. Once there, they chat with Dee before Susan spots the bridal party approaching. Rosie asks the men to get into their positions at the altar.
TIM: (to Marc) Ready for the big walk?
Marc doesn't reply but instead looks at the bridal party as they make their way to the rear of the guests.
Michelle comments that it looks a long way to the front and Steph reminds her she did it no problem in the rehearsal. Flick asks if they should get going and Steph remarks that she is meant to be the toey one. Libby finishes sorting Steph's dress and headdress and so she tells them to get the show on the road. As the Wedding March begins, Michelle starts making her way to the alter closely followed by Libby and then Flick.
Pausing slightly, Steph tells her still silent dad that she loves him so much and hopes she too can be as good a partner and parent as he is, kissing him on the cheek before they too head down the aisle. Once they reach the alter Joe shakes Marc's hand before sitting down beside Lyn and Marc talks a sly look at Flick.
Rosie asks if anyone objects to the wedding to speak up now and when there isn't and so the ceremony continues with Steph saying her vows first during which Marc and Flick take sly looks at each other.
STEPH: I Stephanie Jo Scully take you Marcus Murray Russell Lambert to be my husband secure in the knowledge that you'll be my best friend, my life partner and my one true love. Before these witnesses I promise to love you without reservation, to encourage you to achieve your goals, to laugh with you, to cry with you, to grow with you in mind and spirit and to be open and honest with you as we build or lives together for as long as we both shall live.
MARC: I Marcus Murray Russell Lambert (big pause) take you Stephanie (another big pause)
Steph nods to Marc to keep going and he takes another look at Flick while Joe gets restless in his seat. Tim gives Marc a nudge too but he continues to look between Steph and Flick before finally saying that he can't do this.
Steph says to him that he can but he again looks at Flick, then back to her.
