SPOILER ALERT! Stone the flaming crows! Iconic Home And Away character Alf Stewart plays celebrant at Summer Bay Wedding

There's another wedding in Summer Bay, and with characters Evie and Matt set to walk down the aisle, who else other than Home And Away's most beloved character Alf Stewart could take the role as celebrant?

Actor Alec Snow who plays the role of Matt described the experience to The Daily Telegraph as 'weird' locking lips with actress Phillipa Northeast who plays Evie, with the veteran actor in the background.   

One character who has remained in Summer Bay since the start is iconic Alf, played by Australian actor Ray Meagher.

Since appearing in the Channel Seven show's debut episode back in 1988, Alf's loveable nature has managed to stand the test of time, as have his memorable catchphrases 'strewth' and 'stone the flaming crows', along with his warm on-screen presence.

Sporting a generous mop of brown hair back in the early days, before transitioning to a blond look and then his naturally greyed, thinned out hair, Alf's locks may have changed but his stern stares and mannerisms haven't altered one bit. 

The active Summer Bay resident, with a keen interest in fishing and the community, has fronted the bait shop for many years as well as giving a hand in the local diner.

In the pilot episode he was the owner of the Summer Bay caravan park, before selling the business to Tom and Pippa Fletcher.

Mourning the death of his wife Martha, he then forged an onscreen relationship with Ailsa Hogan played by Judy Nunn.

 No doubt over two decades in the Bay have resulted in varied experiences for Alf.

From seeing his love Ailsa pass away in 2001, to later discovering he had a brain tumour, heartbreak has been unavoidable at some stages of his life.

Fans will note the strong bond Alf shared with Sally Fletcher over the years, played by Kate Ritchie who was on the show from 1988 to 2008. 

In 2008 Alf was left devastated when Sally decided to leave Summer Bay, but the pair were briefly reunited five years later when Sally returned with her daughter for a short time. 

As the longest-standing original cast member on the show, Ray admitted last year that he is still just as much in love with the show as he was when he started.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph in September last year he said: 'I'm still upright, I've still got a pulse, I still enjoy it more than 90 per cent of the time I am there and the new kids coming through keep it fresh'.
