In the digital age, love stories can begin in the most unexpected places. For Chris and Rory, that beginning was on the sprawling virtual landscape of Instagram. Amidst the plethora of images, videos, and stories that fill our daily feeds, it's rare to find a connection that truly lasts. Yet, for Chris and Rory, a simple shared appreciation for a mutual connection's post was the spark that set their love story in motion.
Like any modern fairy tale, theirs wasn't without its hiccups. Their first planned rendezvous was thwarted by a rather over-indulgent evening on Rory's part. However, fate has its way, and on the 13th of October, 2017, they found themselves sitting across from one another, exploring the stories and passions behind those online profiles.
Fast forward six years, on that very same date, the pair exchanged not just rings, but an age-old Pagan promise. In a heartfelt “hand fasting” ceremony, Chris and Rory tied the knot, both symbolically and literally, uniting their lives and souls. Surrounded by 150 of their dearest friends and family, including Rory’s parents who flew in from sunny Florida, they celebrated their love at the picturesque Northbrook Park in Farnham.
Now, every love story has its details, the little intricacies that make it unique. For Chris and Rory, that detail was their suits. Despite living in London, their whirlwind work schedules took them around the globe, leaving little time to find that perfect outfit for their big day. But where there's a will, there's a way. Through a volley of messages, photos, and linked inspirations, the dream suits began to take shape.
Their Autumn-themed wedding found reflection in their choice of attire. Chris donned a dapper suit tailored from the luxurious fabrics of Harrison’s, while Rory sported a piece from the esteemed Holland and Sherry collection. But in a heartwarming nod to unity and partnership, Rory's waistcoat was crafted from the same cloth as Chris’s suit. A simple yet profound gesture, echoing their shared journey and intertwined fates.
This is the tale of Chris and Rory; a testament to the idea that love can blossom in the most unexpected places. From a shared like on a social media platform to a shared life, their story is a modern romance for the ages.
