Our Story

A love lost and found story, 18 years in the making. The serendipitous fairy tale that came true via New Zealand, Saudi Arabia, Canada, Aberystwyth, and London

Francesca and James first set eyes on each other during their time at Oswestry School. This young love kindled brightly, but their time together was cut short when their school ended and life was to take them their separate ways. Thanks to a whole lot of luck they were destined to cross paths once again…

18 years later, the pair’s busy lives spent around the globe through adventures and challenges high and wide were to fortuitously cross once more. It was with one simple Facebook post that the spark was reignited…

A trip to Canada, Holland, Aberdovey, Scotland, and a COVID lockdown cemented their love. A love 18 years in the making…

…will now shine brightly for the whole world to see.
