Goooood morning! I hope you all had a blissful nights sleep? When Laura Calderwood sent me this shoot, I first thought “he has awesome hair”, I then thought, “I am sure I recognise him?”. I do, from here!! Gareth and Alice now tour together and you can find more details here. I don’t suppose any one knows where Alice’s dress is from? All round beautifulness.
