Luke Jacobz relocated from Los Angeles to Sydney to continue his role as Angelo Rosetta on Home and Away.
On Wednesday, the day he was supposed to get married to Raychel Stuart, he paid a tribute to his American fiancée as heartbroken Luke could not get married due to Covid-19 restrictions.
Luke, 39, penned an emotional tribute to his wife – on Instagram to mark the occasion, confirming he hadn’t seen the ‘love of his life’ in ‘294 Days’.

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. 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 her 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… Raychel is the most amazing, kind, funny, thoughtful, caring, selfless, generous, understanding Woman I have ever met in my Life. We have been through some incredible difficult times.. 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… 11.11.2020 #oneday #futurewife #wedding #marriage #love #remembranceday #family #mybilly
‘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,’ he wrote, alongside a photo montage of the pair.
After listing activities he hadn’t been able to do with Raychel this year, he added: ‘Raychel is the most amazing, kind, funny, thoughtful, caring, selfless, generous, understanding Woman I have ever met in my Life.’
He went on to say how much he loves his other half, before adding: ‘I know we haven’t had our amazing wedding just yet. But to me, from today, you are my wife.’
Former X Factor host had previously revealed that the couple had plans to relocate Down Under later this year. However their plans have been postponed.
His plans were to fly over to her in each production break he got and bring her stuff back and forth little by little.
Luke returned to Home and Away in August, almost a decade after leaving the show in June 2011.
