Married At First Sight Australia star Dino Hira has tied the knot to his girlfriend Laurena Law in a surprise wedding ceremony following their whirlwind romance.
The Aussie star appeared on the explosive sixth season of the reality show three years ago alongside the likes of Jessika Power, Cyrell Paule and Mike Gunner, which had us all HOOKED when it aired in the UK earlier this year.
MAFS’ relationship experts matched Dino with Melissa Lucarelli, with the pair first meeting on their wedding day, but their relationship just wasn’t meant to be and they split midway through the experiment.
It seems to have worked out well for Dino though as he’s now married to Laurena, who he called his “soul lover”.
He announced he and Laurena had tied the knot on Instagram as he shared a stunning photoshoot snap from their Hindu wedding ceremony which showed them sporting matching traditional red and gold outfits.

Alongside the photo, Dino wrote, “Not modelling, not Bollywood, not MAFS… 🤣 This is… FOR REAL ❤🙏🏽❤. Meeting at an ‘astrology class’ this time the experts and match makers were the universe and stars 🌟.
“I am MARRIED not to a soul mate but my soul lover @doc_laurena (HARIKA). May 14th will always be special in my heart.”

Look! More news!
After meeting at an astrology class last June, Dino popped the question to Laurena in front of her family, friends and dogs in January. He told Who magazine, “When you know, you know, right? I just felt instantly that Laurena was the woman I was supposed to be with. I describe our connection as soul lovers rather than just as soulmates.”
Despite his failed relationship with Melissa, the mindfulness coach added that he has no regrets about appearing on MAFS. He explained, “I’m just so grateful for the opportunity it gave me. I’d probably still be working in the mines if I hadn’t done the show because it’s just opened me up to really thinking about what I want out of life.
“We’re in an incredible time in our life. I’m so incredibly grateful that I went from Married At First Sight to love at first sight. My wife is my one true love and we couldn’t be happier. I feel like an incredibly lucky man.”
