Rachael & Aaron
Rachael and Aaron met through friends when they were 14 years old, who else remembers chatting to their crush on MSN Messenger? Rachael and Aaron certainly do!
After almost 13 years together Aaron proposed to Rachael while on a private boat cruise in Capri, Italy and they were married on their 14th anniversary, they’ve already spent half their lives together.
It was important to Rachael and Aaron to choose a venue where they could hold their ceremony and reception in the same location and also be the only wedding on site. They fell in love with the beautiful character of Gunners Barracks and Rachael said that as soon as she saw the courtyard she could imagine herself walking down the aisle
Rachael and Aaron’s wedding was full of some very sentimental moments for the couple. Rachael lost her Grandmother just a few months before the wedding day and we placed a single rose on the chair that she would have sat in for the ceremony in her memory.
Rachael walked down the aisle alongside her grandfather (who she describes as a second dad) while he was pushed down the aisle in his wheelchair by her father. Rachael was extremely emotional at that time, she “had to fight back the tears walking down the aisle with them”
“I feel incredibly blessed to be his wife”
