Sarah and Dave fell in love during the lockdown in 2020.

As Sarah told Vogue Australia in October 2021, “We’ve been friends since 2014, lived together, traveled together, always excited to see each other, but totally platonic. We’ve just never been single at the same time. I proposed, and we got married in February in my backyard. It’s been a ride," Sarah said.

She added: "There’s so much heartache and sadness in the world, but on a micro personal level, I’ve been very fortunate. There’s a really lovely grace in that without the pandemic, we might not have ended up together so quickly.”
