They explain to Lyn, who is already verging on frantic, that

not until after tomorrow’s big wedding.
day of the wedding dawns at the Kennedy house. Libby is in

completely natural, it’s just nerves. Libby says that she
has never felt like this before in her life.
the hospital, Steph explains to Woody what went on yesterday
evening. Woody feels guilty for putting her through that ordeal
and apologises. Steph then has to rush off to get ready for
the wedding and Woody insists that Lyn takes a photo of her
in her bridesmaid outfit, so that he can see what she looks
like in a dress!
at Number 28, Lyn is helping Libby with her beauty regime
as various females return from inspecting the church. They
promise Libby that it looks beautiful. After arguing on the
phone in the background, Karl furiously breaks the news that
Grandpa Tom will not be attending as Castro the horse is sick.
Libby is quite hurt by this news, even though Karl assures
her it’s nothing personal. Steph arrives with the flowers
and Aunt Minnie gathers everyone together for a photo… just
as Dougal, at Number 22, irritates everyone with the camera
flash. The men of the Kirk family don their kilts, under the
instruction of Uncle Fergus, just as Dougal takes another
the church, Dione insists on photographing the Scully family,
much to Joe’s displeasure. Drew arrives, along with various

hurry into the church.
at the pub, Lou is preparing to leave for the wedding. However,
his computer has crashed and he needs to take it out to the

arrives at the hospital to find out what’s happened to Lou,
to whom he was meant to give a lift to the wedding. Sheena
explains that Lou is with the specialists, who need to perform
some tests and scans, in order to rule out the possibility
of a tumour.
and Drew take their vows, amidst loving shots of various couples.
They then happily leave the church, to the tune of pipesmen,
as man and wife. At a venue in the city, Libby and Drew arrive
for their wedding reception.
the meal, Karl gives his speech, speaking of how proud he
is of his daughter and how she always vowed not to marry until
she was at least 35 years old. Drew then upholds another Kirk
tradition as he, with help from Harold and Fergus, sings Wild
Mountain Thyme to his new bride. As the tune continues,
Libby and Drew say their thank yous and set off on their honeymoon,
but not before Steph, who has remained subdued throughout
the whole affair, catches the bouquet.
The episode before this, 3707,
credited a character called Wade Grubb, played by Tim Sullivan,
who never actually appeared. At the beginning of the episode,
Steph speaks of a man threatening her, a scene that viewers
never saw. It is not known why this scene was never shown,
nor why the character’s name remained on the credits. Libby
and Drew’s wedding took place in the same church that was
used for the 1987 wedding of Scott and Charlene, the Holy
Trinity Anglican Church of Doncaster. The plot involving Lou’s
back injury was specifically written to explain the limp and
walking stick used by Tom Oliver, who required major back
surgery in real-life.
