Stephanie was born and raised in Guelph, Ontario, Canada with her younger brother Dillon, and is the daughter to Lynne and Rob Russo. From an early age it was clear that she would be the dreaded “teacher” of the family. She attended university at Laurier Brantford where she gained her undergraduate and teaching qualifications. After realising that she wanted to see more of the world (much like her Uncle Rick) she hopped on a plane to teach for, what was supposed to be, a year abroad in London. It was here that she made many new friends through baseball and teaching, and of course Ali. So, her year-long trip to London has led her to a wedding in Jamaica. YAY!
Alastair was born in London, England and raised in Cheltenham, with his younger brother Oliver, and is a son to Loan and John Wood. After graduating from Warwick University with a Math degree, he moved into investment banking – just as the credit crisis hit (it wasn’t his fault!). After meeting Steph, he was taught about the great things, and people(!), that Canada has to offer – even learning the rules to baseball! In return, he showed Steph how great Brass Bands are, as well as how brilliant life in England is. So much so, that she wanted to stay! After some trips to Canada, and a surprise romantic proposal, they’re having a beautiful wedding in Jamaica.
