Paul was Aleks’ assistant photographer for the working day and he was also so pretty and quick to commit the working day with.”

The song that we selected for our very first dance is created by just one of our shared favourite musicians which we have found engage in are living several moments. “Still Together” by Mac DeMarco is one thing we generally envisioned us dancing to on our particular working day and we often imagined this tune currently being performed by a are living band for us only. Our band Groove Junction did the music justice.”
