Today’s alternative first dance love song is chosen by Rachel and Gareth whose amazing rustic 3 day outdoor wedding we featured yesterday and today. If you missed it then click here for Part 1 and here for Part 2.

They chose You and Me by Lifehouse and here’s why….

“It just one of our favourite songs, and we figured we could perhaps pull off a dance for it. We spent MONTHS collecting ideas from different dances on YouTube, and then practising our homemade routine in our garden with our dog running around! We must have looked ridiculous if the neighbours saw us! It was great fun to both learn a dance really well – Gareth turned out to be quite the waltzer! We were a little nervous on the day about some of the big lifts in my dress, but Gareth did an amazing job of effortlessly flinging me about the place. We got a huge clap and lots of compliments, hooray!”
