In a series of throwback photos from their 1996 wedding, Hugh raved about his wife on Instagram.

"Being married to you, Deb is as natural as breathing," he began. "From nearly the moment we met ... I knew our destiny was to be together. In our 25 years, our love has only grown deeper. The fun, excitement, and adventure more exhilarating; the learning even greater. I’m forever grateful to share our love, our life - and our family together. We’ve only just begun. Deb, I love you with all my heart!"

Hugh has been known for praising his wife and even posted another throwback photo from their wedding day to celebrate Valentine's Day.

"Deb. You are, and always will be, the great love of my life," he captioned the Instagram post. "I love you to the moon and back."

It's clear that Hugh is still in love with his wife even 25 years later (if that's not soulmate goals, then I don't know what is). 

The couple first met one another on the set of Deborra-Lee's Australian TV series Correlli. After becoming official, the two officially tied the knot in April of 1996 at a church outside Melbourne. 

Back when they were preparing to celebrate their 24th wedding anniversary, Hugh revealed to PEOPLE that their secret is to "make time for each other."

Even a year ago, the love for his wife was distinct, and he added that over time he's still amazed over her.

"We're always learning, and humans change, so you have to, even though we've been together 25 years, you gotta reset all the time," he told the outlet. "I'm always reeling in how funny she is and how amazing she is, and how smart she is. The longer it goes on, the better it gets."
