Babette & Gordon first met when she was 15 years old on a family holiday in Torquay and had a holiday romance that lasted over the course of a year by keeping in contact by letter (OMG, just HOW CUTE!)
They lost touch after that first year and went their separate ways living their lives to the fullest... but Gordon never forgot Babette! In 2009 their paths crossed again with Gordon getting back in contact with Babette over Facebook and that was how their story together began again 25 years later.
I don't know about you... but sometimes it really is just meant to be!
Babette & Gordon decided to elope to Gretna Green on the final day of July with 6 of their closest friends... and then let the cat out the bag the following day to all their family! Everyone was obviously so happy for the two of them providing an amazing start to their two week honeymoon walking around the Lake District together. (They're very keen walkers and oh my gosh!! Their bags that they carried were so heavy! I'm so impressed that they managed nearly two weeks straight with them!)
These two are honestly one of the cutest couples and so warm and welcoming. I wish both Babette and Gordon an amazing life together, and know they'll create many more amazing stories together!! I was honoured to be able to capture their intimate secret wedding!
