Laura Woods celebrated her 12th wedding anniversary with her husband Mark Arigho. Laura and Mark met each other on a blind date. 

Laura Woods met Mark Arigho on a blind date in Dublin, the capital of Ireland. They get to know each other via a mutual friend they trusted who set them up on a blind date. That friend who set Laura on the date is now happily married.

She even joked about how much has changed for her recently, but her husband has remained the same.

The presenter shared how her first meeting with her husband went. She explained how scrolling through the phone, she found the first guy as his name is Arigho, and said, 'He's perfect for you.'

Also, Laura expressed that she and her husband had so much in common. The presenter even knew Mark's brother because they grew up in the same neighborhood.

Laura Woods Is Thankful For Her Husband Mark Arigho Who Never Changed

Mark Arigho is well-known as the husband of Laura Woods. Laura is an Irish TV presenter and radio host. 

He works as an architect and has received his diplomas from the Canterbury School of Architecture and University College Dublin.

The husband is the director of ALWA, which stands for Arigho Larmour Wheeler Architects, an award-winning RIAI and RIBA chartered architectural office that provides architectural services in Dublin and Belfast. Since 2016, he has been in the position. 

ALWA was founded by Arigho, Jane Larmour, and Patrick Wheeler.

From July 2004 to January 2016, he worked as a senior architect for 'de Blacam and Meagher Architects.

From January 2002 to September 2002, he worked at Douglas Wallace Architects. He also worked as a designer at Saunders Creative from May 2001 to November 2001 for nine months.

Mark and Laura, after meeting on a blind date in Dublin, couldn't stop each other from meeting again, so they make the deal for a fateful second date.

Although the couple's relationship is going strong, they had to bid farewell to their pet Minnie on the 4th of April, 2022.

The lovebirds who met 14 years ago trusted a mutual friend to set them up on a blind date and are thankful to them as they could meet then.

On the first met of their blind date, they went to Dakota and the Port House tapas bar in Dublin.

Laura expressed her hope that Mark would impress her with his language skills at the restaurant because he is half Spanish, but he didn't say anything.

Nonetheless, the two hit it off, and while their love was "slow-burning" at first, they were engaged two years later. Later, they married in a beautiful ceremony at Slane Castle, surrounded by friends and family.

Laura Woods and her Husband Mark Arigho Are The Parents of Two

Mark Arigho and Laura Woods are the parents of two sons, Ben and Alex. They are proud parents to their kids.

The older one is Ben, who is currently ten years old, and the younger one is Alex, who is currently seven years old. 

Laura considers herself fortunate because her line of work allows her to pursue her career while also spending time with her family.

She even stated in an interview in 2015 that having small children is stressful no matter what job you have and that she was still figuring out how to balance her career and motherhood.

The TV presenter has come a long way in raising her children well, and that is because she is also blessed with a supportive husband.

She was able to spend more time with her children because she was able to work at a job she enjoyed. If she had a 9 to 5 job five days a week, she would not have had that luxury.

Mark is also a hands-on father. He continues to share posts about spending quality time with his two sons and giving all his time to them, which is very important.

Laura admitted to occasionally forgetting one another, but they were working on that.

She described Mark as an amazing person and her marriage to him as wonderful, but she also mentioned the importance of making time for one another.
