After this couple was married in a small ceremony in Scotland, they watched a video of their wedding that had been taken on a phone and instantly wished someone had been there to record the whole event! When they later decided to have a larger celebration and ceremony in Florida, they knew they wanted to capture the magic and found the perfect cinematographer for the job – Anesha. As the bride said, “She was also already visualizing and planning as we spoke. As writers, we knew that she was ‘storyboarding’ the way we would. There was no doubt from that meeting that there could be anyone else for us.” Watch Irene and John’s wedding by Unashamed Imaging, then read about how these two wrote the way to each other’s heart."- LoveStoriesTv Their 'Love Story':

When I first started speaking to John in 2007 I was at a dark place in my life. As I often have at difficult times in my life I retreated into my writing and was working on a novel. My best friend Jacqueline was my ‘proof reader’ and I had begun spending about two nights a week at her house. During a point in time where I was struggling with a section of my novel, Jacqueline noticed that there was a site where budding writers made a form of ‘graphic story’ using The Sims as the artwork. I decided to try a short story using this as a break from my serious writing. John was one of the writers on the site and was working on very funny, rather naughty superhero saga called ‘The Mod Squad’. One night when I was stuck with how to do something in the game to get the characters in position for a ‘photo shoot’, Jac realised John was online and PM’d him to see if he could help. He passed on the info to solve my problem and he and Jacqueline went on chatting. When I had finished what I was working on, I went to observe their typed chat. Jac and I squeezed into her computer corner and I chimed in on the conversation but still in her account, both of us typing in different colours. We alternated who was speaking for nearly two hours and it was obvious he had NO idea he was talking to two people. We were doubled up with laughter at his confusion as to our changes in tone and conversation content. She was flirting outrageously and I was discussing writing plots and ideas for his story. Finally, we took mercy on him and admitted he was talking to two people. John and I started bouncing ideas for our respective stories off of each other and ended up co-writing parts of each other’s work. We spoke every day on the phone and on Skype and eventually decided that we would meet to see if what we felt was a fantasy like our writing or if there really was something there. Well, as we are now married, I believe you know the answer to that! Our romantic relationship online began towards the end of 2012 and we met for the first time in person in October 2013.- Bride (Irene) on LoveStoriesTV
