Ann Joseph resorted to stalking to find the husband of her dreams – and Sean Mayo was more than pleased she did.
The couple met at a party in December 2012 and hit if off right away – they just forgot one very important detail – exchanging contact details. “I remembered him mentioning in passing that he worked as a paramedic in the Dandenong area,” explains Melbourne’s Ann, 33 of Sean, 28. “I could not get our meeting out of my head, so I asked my friend’s sister who worked as a nurse in the ED in Dandenong to try and track him down.”
Almost two weeks later, when the friend couldn’t find a paramedic named Sean, Ann was about to give up – only to receive an unexpected Christmas surprise! “She’d managed to track him down, take a photo of him and ask him for his details,” recalls Ann. “I sent him an email to say hi and he invited me on a date.”
The couple married at their fun Melbourne wedding on January 16, 2016 with 180 loved ones. A ceremony at St Luke’s Anglican Church in South Melbourne was followed by a reception at Glen Eira Town Hall in Caulfield. “The after party went on until 5am at a nightclub in the city,” laughs Ann.

Not all your wedding photos have to be posed and romantic – have a little fun.
The couple celebrated an after-party at a club on their wedding night, then invited people back to their home for it to continue beyond 5am!
As well as a chef to cater for their town hall wedding, Ann and Sean asked Liquid Infusion to take care of the cocktails.
