Hi! We are Lydia and Wehan, high school sweethearts who share their DIY projects, food experiments and gluten free recipes online.
Hi, I’m Lydia!
Even though I’ve been in Australia majority of my life I am English and was born in Birmingham. I don’t have the accent to prove it except when I’m angry – Wehan says that when I shout my brummy accent comes out!
My passion is in digital marketing. I am digital marketing OBSESSED – I’ve had a fascination in digital marketing (particularly social media) for as long as I can remember however this obsession blossomed during my years at university where I studied a bachelor of business with a major in marketing. It was during my degree that I suggested to Wehan that we create an Instagram account to share pictures of our food.
My role in Foodie Couple Adventures is running all of our social media accounts, working on business collaborations and running this blog. Alongside these tasks I am co photographer and videographer – Wehan and I usually take turns depending on who ‘has the vision’ and isn’t hangry that day!
Hey, I’m Wehan!
I have also been in Australia majority of my life however I was born in Pretoria in South Africa. Afrikaans was actually my first language however after spending so much time with Lydia (who only speaks English) my Afrikaans skills are a little rusty!
My role in Foodie Couple Adventures is co photographer, videographer and editor. In addition to this I am the technology man – any new software/equipment I’m in charge of researching and making the decisions on.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long have you been dating?
We are actually high school sweethearts and have been dating 10 years.
How did you two meet?
Though we didn’t talk at the time we actually went to the same primary school. Our lives crossed paths in high school and after 1 year of Wehan chasing Lydia we finally started dating on the 14th of February 2011. We’ve been dating ever since.
Who is Korbin?
Korbin is our beautiful little cat! We brought home Mr Korbin on the 21st of November 2018 from a foster carer at Saving Animals Matters. Korbin was found without a mumma and was hand raised by his foster carer so he’s the sweetest, most affectionate little man who runs over for snuggles and kisses, loves a good belly tickle and chases Lydia’s moms dogs around our house! To be honest, he doesn’t even act like a cat, he’s basically a dog that can climb.
Who is Keeko?
Keeko is our second little kitty! We brought home Keeko on the 12th of May 2019 from City Farmers Clarkson. He was there as part of Cat Haven’s adoption program. Keeko came all the way from Kalgoorlie to find a new home. He is a beautiful little boy. He’s a shy boy but as soon as he’s warmed up to you he’s a real sweetie. He is a very noisy boy who makes the funniest little chirpy noises all the time. Him and Korbin are like two peas in a pod, they snuggle together, sleep together, eat together and play with each other. Fun fact about Keeko: his ‘original’ name was storm, we renamed him to Keeko which means ‘blessed child’.
