How did you meet?
Laura was new to England and living in Surrey (from Canada), Marcus had just moved into London with his first job position after his masters. Neither of us knew anyone or had any friends. I guess we were both using dating apps as a way to find someone to spend time with. We only matched because Laura had taken a train into London alone to spend a day sightseeing. Marcus was at his job in central London. Otherwise, with the distance parameters, we never would have matched. We spoke about a month, and then met in Hyde Park on Christmas day. It was our first Christmas’ away from our families. We had Christmas dinner together at a pub, and have been together ever since. ((Laura’s mom doesn’t know we met on an app though, so we’re saying we just met randomly in London on Christmas day 😉 ))
The venue(s) or location, why this place above anywhere else?
We wanted somewhere outdoors, woodsy, natural, with beautiful landscapes. We didn’t want to choose a side of Canada or Sweden, and we wanted it to be as quick as possible. Scotland always kind of called to us, and we’ve only visited once but both felt at home there. We’re excited to see the highlands and make our wedding another adventure to add to our story.
