Two longtime Lae families – the Lakas and the Faunts – came closer together last Saturday when Dobbin Laka tied the knot with sweetheart Evelyn Faunt at the Cassowary Road United Church.
Rainy Lae gave its blessing by not pouring down on this special day for the young couple.
Family, friends and relatives from all over PNG, including Lae MP Bart Philemon, gathered at the church for the wedding and exchange of vows, which was conducted by Rev Raka Aiga.
This was followed by traditional Manus exchange of gifts and a wedding reception at the Lae International Hotel.
Dobbin Laka is the son of well-known former cricketer and Lae businessman Harry Laka and netball personality Jill Laka, while Evelyn Faunt is the daughter of respected teacher David Faunt and whose mother, from Manus, and another highly-regarded teacher, has passed away.
The Faunt family includes Papua New Guinea singing sensation, John Faunt, of the Lae-based Hauboi band.
The couple met while at the University of Technology in Lae
