Haleh & Gareth

are getting married 28th july 2018 in oxfordshire

Our story so far

Neither of us were sure if we would be going to the party. Encouraged by friends, we went along. Little did we know that we would meet one-another on the 19th of June 2015. Keen to get to know each other better, we took a picnic basket with plenty of chicken pie and gin and sat under the trees in Hampstead Heath. We hit it off and after spending many days together, it was obvious that we had plenty in common, especially our great love for food, trying new experiences and travel!

We embarked on a journey full of adventures, starting in the Lake District where we went on long hikes and ate lots of sticky toffee pudding! Continuing our exploration, we went on to share other trips to see the Manhattan Skyline, Northern Lights in Iceland and Puffins in Scotland. After so many quests, it only seemed fitting that we got engaged on a bright, sunny day, above the clouds on the beautiful Austrian mountains on the 3rd of March 2017. We hope to see you on our special day this July to be part of our continuing adventure! We want to thank Alexandra Jane Photography for our beautiful engagement photos.
