How we met

Louisianna pub in Winchester

The staircase at Louisianna's just after they removed the Palms

It was a Friday night in March 1994.  Shella was with her best mates, Sharon and Claire, under the palm tree in Louisiana pub, the place to be in Winchester at the time!  Matt was there with Ashley and Matt Brown (his ushers).  Shella had fancied Matt for a while, particularly when he wore his Manic Street Preachers T-shirt with ‘Baby I’m Bored’ written on the back!!!  Shella eventually got her sister Kelly to introduce them to each other that night.  They went on their first date to Ocean Village that Sunday afternoon, and so the Storey begins…………….!!!!!
