LAurA ANd SereLLe Marrying my best friend Laura and Serelle soon knew that their relationship was destined to turn long term, as Laura tells us. Pics by David Christie at Crystal Memories Photography ‘ G etting married was the best day of my life and if I could do it all over again I would. I could not recommend getting married more – it was the most fun, emotional day.’ We met when we were 15 and 16 years old through a mutual friend who went to school with me and who lived in Serelle’s village. I was dating a boy at the time, who happened to go to her school – I suppose I didn’t really understand my feelings for girls. The first communication with Serelle was through MSN instant messenger – that’s how long ago it was! We met in person about a week later and then became girl - friends. Three months later she dumped me by text message! Serelle heard from a mutual friend that I was with the guy from her school, who she thought was a complete wally. So she decided that she would ‘steal’ me away and date me, which she did! After a few weeks she could tell that I was looking for a ‘proper’ relationship and she wasn’t. That’s why she ended it. A couple of relationships and years later, we reconnected after meeting at Girls and Boys nightclub in Canterbury. Serelle was in a relationship at the time – which would end several months later. We started hanging out again, as friends this time, but we both knew there was still a connection there. I was convinced that I wasn’t going to date her again after the previous experience, but after much persistence on her part we ended up together again! pink weddings magazine » 59
