 IT COULD be happily ever after for Andrew Hill on Married At First Sight.

The Rockhampton native made his biggest commitment yet on the reality dating show tonight, renewing his vows with TV wife Vanessa Belvedere.

After spending a week apart at home, both Andrew and Vanessa had to decide independently if they wanted to renew their vows or split for good.

The softly spoken 30-year-old used the opportunity to put all of his feelings on the line during the ceremony on the Gold Coast, where he now lives.

"When I first laid eyes on you I knew you were something special," he said.

 "You have brought out feelings in me I never knew I had.

"I know I'm not the guy you ordered, but if you take a chance on this cave man you'll get more than you bargained for."

It was then a nervous wait for Andrew as Vanessa, 31, revealed her decision; earlier in the episode he admitted he would be 'heartbroken' if she chose to leave him.

While has been steadfast in his feelings for the talkative and vivacious university student, she has been plagued with doubts about his introverted nature.

"I feel torn between all the amazing qualities Andy has and the fact that Andy's quite introverted and I'm quite extroverted," she told the cameras before the renewal ceremony.

But despite her reservations and admission she's still 'adjusting' to Andrew's communication style, Vanessa also committed to pursuing a long-distance relationship. It was a fairy tale ending for viewers who have endured weeks of dramatic dinner parties and commitment ceremonies.

"I'm excited to see what happens between us," Vanessa said.

Andrew and Vanessa will now continue their relationship away from cameras, with the show's relationship experts set to catch up with them for the final stages of the experiment next week.

The vow renewals continue on Married At First Sight tomorrow at 7.30pm on Channel 9.
