”There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications and just go for it” - Judith McNaught.
I think this quote is so true for this little story unfolding here today. The beautiful Ashley crossed paths with Daniel a few years ago in a place where they were both miles away from home, not necessarily seeking the other but inexplicably being drawn to one another. Despite Daniel leaving quite quickly after for halfway across the world, they both realised that chance meeting wasn’t a mere encounter to dismiss, that it was quite possible they had just met each other's soulmate. From that day on, they fought everything to see one another again, and again and again, until they decided the only thing to do was to make their togetherness permanent culminating in this day unfolding right here. I think there was a brief moment midway through the ceremony where both of them looked out happily to their loved ones, standing side by side, little joyful tears brimming beneath the surface, clutching their handwritten vows that they were about to declare to one another: I doubt neither of them could fathom that chance encounter all those years ago would hold such an enormous impact, propelling them all to that exact moment. This gorgeous Autumnal wedding at the exquisite Gunners Barracks was so beautifully moving especially with both Ashley and Daniel's family flying from all around the world to celebrate the love these two have for one another - I really hope you love this collection as much as do.
