A newlywed bride has told of her devastation after her wedding photos and videos were stolen in Dublin.

Hannah Serra (35), who lives in London, said her film-maker husband Abraham Serra (32) was visiting Ireland last week to shoot a commercial here.

He visited Weston Airport on Saturday to do a test that allows him to fly camera drones in Ireland.

He left equipment in a van in the car park and was shocked when he returned to find it had been stolen.

Up to £30,000 (€40,500) worth of gear was taken, including hard drives, cameras and lenses. Most of the equipment is Abraham's, but a number of items belonging to two other crew members, including iPhones, tablets and laptops, were also taken.

However, it is the theft of a MacBook Pro laptop which has left Hannah disraught, because it contains the only copy of her "irreplaceable" wedding photos and videos.

The couple had their dream wedding in Kent on July 25.

"We had 150 people there. Family members travelled from all over the world," Hannah told the Herald.

All their photos were on the laptop hard drive.

Hannah said they have reported the matter to the gardai and were now appealing to the Irish public for help.

"Material items come and go, but I am desperate to get at least a few photos back from our big day," she said.

The couple are offering a reward of £2,500 (€3,374) from their savings for information leading to the recovery of the stolen items.
