As American expats living in the UK, one of the questions we hear most often from friends and family back home is, "Can you bring me back a British guy? I love their accents."

But since living in the UK, it has become apparent that there isn't just one British accent. Much like the US - it will very much vary depending on where you are. In this #AskExpatWives video, Jude and I discuss how we've adjusted to all of the different variants.

On Sunday August 7th, 2016 - Chris and I celebrated our wedding at The Alverton, Truro. Though we had already married in Bellingham on New Year's Eve, this was our chance to celebrate with friends, family and each other.

The whole day was captured on film by Ray McShane. From preparing for the big moment, to dancing late into the night - we're so happy to have this memento from a wonderful day.

You can watch the the full wedding video on our YouTube channel:

The first in our #AskBritishHusbands video. In this edition, Chris and Ashley answer the question: have you ever received negative feedback about your American wives?

While most people are generally supportive of our relationships, both Chris and Ashley have experienced negative comments about their decisions too. This is something that is, unfortunately, all too common when it comes to international relationships and marriages. The situations and contexts in which these comments arise is also often surprising.
