Soraya and Alex’s wedding day took place on a gloriously sunny day in the centre of Bristol, on the Glassboat, WelshBack.
Their story began in Edinburgh 5 years ago. They met for the first time in a pub after being introduced by their dear friends. After months of a young innocent love, circumstances drove Alex and Soraya apart but the strong connection that exists between them stood the test of time and distance and they eventually found their way back to each other. A true love story!
Soraya and her family are from Morocco, and asked whether I would speak some french in their service. Of course, I took on the challenge! Just a few of the lovely French comments I made:
Le Coeur a ses raisons que la raison ne connait point.
Aimer, ce n’est pas se regarder l’un l’autre, c’est regarder ensemble dans la même direction.
And finally to end, ‘Vous pouvez embarasser la mariee!’
