Wedding fAyr!

After all the catch ups,it was time to get down to business…Do you remember back in Palalom Beach in Goa around January 2014? No? Well it was here that John proposed to a very surprised Karen and 16 months later it was time to plan the wedding and in typical JK style we had 2 days to […]
