“I had my eye on him from afar, after seeing him play guitar in the garden of the hostel we were both staying at in Sydney,” remembers Rebecca. “I was on a gap year with my best friends and we agreed to meet by the Opera House for our first date.

We decorated the brim of a hat with some pretty flowers and put it on her gravestone on the day of the wedding. She would have appreciated that,” smiles Rebecca   Becky and Dan-212
