Larry & Amy

The Girl next door

Larry and Amy met when Amy was only 3 days old. Amy’s parents took her next door to their neighbours and friends, the Shuttleworths, to introduce her. As they say, the rest is history.

These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever.

These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future.

These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other.

These are the hands that will hold you when fear or grief fills your mind.

These are the hands that will countless times wipe the tears from your eyes; tears of sorrow, and tears of joy.

These are the hands that will tenderly hold your children.

These are the hands that will help you to hold your family as one.

These are the hands that will give you strength when you need it.

And lastly, these are the hands that even when wrinkled and aged, will still be reaching for yours, still giving you the same unspoken tenderness with just a touch.

Amy & Larry

The Girl next door

Love (Larry) will find you, no matter where you are.

Larry and Amy met when Amy was only 3 days old. Amy’s parents took her next door to their neighbors and friends, the Shuttleworths, to introduce her.

The Shuttleworths emigrated to Canada in 1992 but kept in touch with the Gathercole family. In 2014, Amy visited the family in Canada and was asked by Susan and her husband, Greg, to be the godmother of their son, while Larry was named as godfather. Amy enjoyed her stay with the family. During the course of 2015, Amy returned to Canada and au paired for the Harper family, caring for her godson.  Larry started inviting himself around to ‘visit his godson’. After a few visits, Larry asked Amy out on a date. The following Monday, Larry then left for Peru where he worked for four months, but not before asking Amy to be his girlfriend.

Amy had to return to South Africa in October of the same year. However, their long-distance relationship continued for a further eleven months. In September 2016, Amy was accepted to study her Master of Social Work degree in Canada and returned to her beloved once again. Larry proposed on April 1st, 2017 near a beautiful lake in an Ontario provincial park.
