Love Is Blind newlywed sweethearts Lauren Speed and Cameron Hamilton shared their thoughts on how they were represented and what they learnt on the hit dating show. 

For Lauren, the most important lessons she learnt were that "vulnerability is strength and that love is not aesthetic. She believes it's "so much deeper than that." 

"It's about your heart," says Lauren. Hubby Cameron adds, "People shouldn't be afraid to be who they are and they shouldn't feel pressured to perform."

"People relate to you the most when you're just yourself," he says. 

Lauren also shares some words of optimism for romantic hopefuls out there.

"There is somebody out there who will love you for you - exactly the way you are. You don't have to change yourself to make somebody like you," she says.
