After the couple fell in love, their relationship was tested with a long-distance period of a year and a half. But the time and distance did not get between them. In fact, it made them stronger and brought them closer together. Close enough for them to decide to seal the deal with a lovely wedding, where Polly wore a simple white dress and a light pink head scarf.
