Alexandra and Darryl met as children and years later celebrated with a wedding at Barns and Yard

Alexandra and Darryl met when they were children. “I was friends with his sister,” says Alexandra. “We then met later at a mutual friend’s engagement party. We share a love of Formula 1 and have lots of mutual interests.”

Darryl popped the question on Christmas Day. “He wrote it on a card and woke me up early as he was so impatient,” shares the bride. “He thoughtfully sought the permission of my dad before proposing, and it was wonderful being able to share the day with family. It was definitely a surprise, and I didn’t even believe him when I read it!”
