Idyllic afternoon: tea party perfection in the West Country
Antique pinks and floral china lent a quirky feel to Alex and Guys party
Alex and Guy - In the beginning
The timing wasn’t quite right for romance when Alex and Guy were first introduced, aged 10, at primary school. “He was pleased as punch to have me sit next to him in class,” Alex jokes now, “but my thinking was more, ‘Yuck, I have to sit with a smelly boy’.” It was a staggering 18 years after they first met that Alex saw Guy busting his moves out on the dancefloor in a club: “He thinks it was those moves that drew me towards him, but I’m convinced it was alcohol-related!” she jokes. This time, love was definitely on the cards, and Guy proposed less than two years later.
