Sama was travelling through Europe with friends, pretty much ran out of money and got a job in the UK for a short while. By chance she met Kayleigh, a good friend of Mat, who then invited her out for drinks on Bonfire night on the 5th Nov. Mat just happened to be back home on leave from the Air Force that weekend, and they chatted a lot about how it felt to be away from friends and family and one thing led to another and now here they are in Sydney happily married!
They dated in the UK for a while, and after Mat got back from Afghanistan he decided “why not give it a go in Sydney?” and since then he never looked back.
Mat says: Luck or fate? We’re not quite sure, but we’ve loved every minute of it.
