And so it begins...
For Everything a Reason has become our way of thinking for all of life’s events that led to us meeting and starting our relationship. It didn’t take long for us to realise that we are soul mates, destined to be, and the phrase holds truer today than it ever has before.
Almost as soon as we met, we found ourselves virtually inseperable and every weekend was spent in Clapton or London Bridge (mostly Clapton). We began making plans for our future, arranging holidays and spending as much time together as we could. We flew to Lake Como together over the bank holiday, and whilst watching the rain fall over the Queen’s Jubilee from the sunny comfort of our hotel room we knew that we had a winning formula.
After returning from Italy, it soon became clear the next natural step was to move in together. Seb decided to move out of the Batchelor Pad he owned with his brother, leaving Justin to rule the roost, and moved into deepest Hackney with El. From that moment on we knew we wanted to build our life together and it didnt take long for Seb to seal the deal with a phone call to Stuart Scheef begging, I mean, asking for El’s hand in marriage. After plucking up the courage to make the call, Seb spent 5 minutes trying to spit it out and ask permission. After managing to do so, the ever empathetic Stuart said “I’m sorry Seb, it’s a terrible line, can you say that again?”.
After Stuart’s “joke” wore off, both sets of parents couldn’t have been happier and even asked what took us so long to as they thought we were perfect together.
There have been many people who have been part of our journey and many of those people will be reading this. We are thankful to all of you and cannot wait to celebrate with you on the Big Day.
From the day we met, to moving in together, getting engaged and planning our big day, For Everything a Reason has defined us and will continue to do so.
