About two years before our engagement, Jassher and I were walking through the Hastings Rose Gardens and I thought he was acting a little nervous, as if there was something on the tip of his tongue.

Graham and I met 11 years ago, when a band he manages was playing in my hometown, but it wasn’t until a few years later, when a friend re- introduced us that we got together and fell in love. Moral of the story: you may meet your soulmate and not even know it until years later!
Will and I first met through a friend at a gallery opening about five years ago in London. We got along really well but I was on a date with someone else! Three months later, I ran into a group of friends at a pub who were celebrating Will’s birthday.
We met by chance in 2013. I was living in New York and had been sent to Hong Kong on a two-week business trip. I met Carteneil, who lived in Hong Kong, only three days after I arrived and knew immediately that I needed to extend my trip.

Tell us about your background and who is behind ‘Watch My Wedding’?
My background is in graphic design and marketing, so they are the skills that I now bring to the business. My husband and business partner is what you’d call ‘the brains of the business’. He came up with the idea originally, and has created bespoke software and hardware to offer a unique service for couples who want to live-stream their wedding. His background is in software engineering and has been coding since he was 9 years old.
