Those accents get us every time!
Leah Harrison, 33, met her English beau Rossi Kewley, 29, while he was travelling Australia. “I was instantly attracted to his accent and his lovely nature,” describes Leah. “We quickly realised we would hate to ever be apart and hated saying goodbye when his visa ran out three months later.”
Rossi returned home to England but put all his drive into working to return to Australia. He made it back eight months later where the couple then worked through the visa process so Rossi could work and eventually become Leah’s husband.
The pair wed at their Hunter Valley wedding on September 26, 2014. Eighty guests attended with some making the journey from England for the big day. Leah surprised Rossi with two London taxis as wedding cars and his favourite song, the Liverpool theme song, playing as she walked down the aisle.
“I wish I could relive the whole day over again as it was the most perfect day,” smiles Leah. “The fact that he moved to another county and left behind his best friends and family to be with me is something I will cherish forever.”
“We had my little brother who is four as our ring bearer and he did such an amazing job,” says Leah.
The couple celebrated their reception at Peppers Creek Barrel Room.
“We danced our first dance to ‘At Last’ by Etta James,” says Leah.
