Julia & Deven {Married}

This isn’t your usual guy meets girl, girl meets guy type of scenario.. This story involves different countries, continents, long distance, commitment and the most joy possible along the way…

Somewhere along my path of life, I met the ever smiling Deven, one of my younger brothers friends from his school days… We were enjoying some beers at one of Brisbane’s best when he told me that he has met a girl, in Melbourne, and that he had followed her to the sunny Brisbane… She’s over from France, and her name is Julia..
What ensued was a mish-mash of living in Australia, France and New Zealand, both at the same time, and quite often at different times. All that this did was strengthen them as a couple and cemented the fact that they were chosen partners for each other, and maaaybe give Deven a bit of an idea of the French Language, just a little maybe!! ;-)
… As maaaany many couples out there today will know and be grateful for, Social networks and the joy that is Skype in such situations, becomes an absolute God send!

They were engaged at Lake Tekapo a year ago while road tripping the South Island of New Zealand. A year later, along with 4 flights, and another 2 continents, and with the two of them together again, Julia and Deven were married on the 27th of July 2015. These two are definitely looking forward to more of what life will bring them, while being in the same place, at the same time…
