Married At First Sight Australia star Dino Hira has secretly tied the knot with girlfriend Laurena Law in a surprise wedding.
The reality star, who appeared in the explosive sixth season of MAFS, confirmed the happy news on Instagram, sharing snaps from their big day.
He could be seen wearing traditional gold and red outfit for their Hindu ceremony, while the bride, 45, matched in a stunning bejewelled red lehenga.
‘Not Modelling, Not Bollywood, Not MAFS… This is… FOR REAL,’ the 37-year-old captioned the post – giving us a glimpse of the official photoshoot from Who Magazine.
‘Meeting at an “Astrology Class” this time the experts and match makers were the Universe & 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.’

‘Thank you for the incredible chat and for us to share our Love Story @melissajfield @whomagazine. Thank you to @maxmarkson for the set up,’ he continued. ‘Thank you to all family and friends that give us your well wishes and blessings.
‘Thank you to the universe for making this happen. Love will ALWAYS WIN!’
Co-star Jules Robinson was among those showering the couple with love on their big day, sliding into the comments to pen: ‘Ah wow. Congratulations Dino. This is amazing.
‘Wishing you a marriage of love laughter and happiness xxx.’

Dino and Laurena met at an astrology class last June, with the mindfulness coach getting down on one knee in January of this year – in front of her family, friends and her dogs.
Speaking about his relationship with the anti-ageing doctor, he told Who: ‘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.’
Dino came to fame on Married At First Sight Australia series six, which aired in 2019, where experts matched him up with Melissa Lucarelli – with the pair first setting eyes on each other on their wedding day.
However their relationship didn’t quite go the distance and they split midway through the experiment.
While the former ‘couple’ are no longer close, he doesn’t regret appearing on the show and has made some lasting connections with his co-stars, including Jules, Cam Merchant, Heidi Latcham and Mike Gunner.
‘I’m just so grateful for the opportunity it gave me,’ he added. ‘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.’
