Alex is a really lucky man. Not only did he grew up in the mews right next to Hyde Park, with stables full of horses next door and only a few steps away from Marble Arch, oh no! He also found this wonderful Scottish girl called Siobhan and very cleverly asked her to marry him. Which she said yes to.
I met them on a wonderful day in January in London and we hung out in the mews a bit, strolled through the park and went to buy lots and lots of delicious things at their favourite Italian deli. Except that it was freezing, overcast and properly windy that day. So the stroll may have been quite short and the deli more than welcoming when we took shelter inside with our wind burned cheeks and red rimmed eyes. What I have learned from this day is that of you like to eat well (and I do), are not adverse to Italian treats (and I am not) and find yourself in London with nothing better to do (and who doesn’t!) you want to hot foot it down to Luigi’s on Fulham Road. There is also a butcher nearby that sells maple syrup bacon which has the same effect as crack on anyone who tries it so I can’t disclose it’s exact location or the maple syrup bacon will be sold out all the time. But do have a look for it, it’s well worth it.
For now I’m looking forward to seeing Siobhan and Alex in Edinburgh in a few weeks; haggis, thistles and kilts and all! It makes me especially happy since they decided to include some film photography in their wedding day, I’m sure it will make the haggis look especially vibrant.
