Julie, 42 and Myron, 53
They walked down the aisle to Above & Beyond, were blessed on Anjuna Beach, then honeymooned at A&B’s Sunburn Festival
Julie and Myron are a true clubland romance. Their eyes met across a crowded dance floor at Passion in Coalville in 2003 and they haven’t looked back since. Both huge fans of trance dons Above & Beyond, the couple travelled all over the UK to see them in action, but never got to meet their heroes. Then, one day on the other side of the world, all that changed.
In December 2007, Julie and Myron decided to tie the knot. “We wanted to get married in Goa, but we found out we couldn’t do the legal side there,” explains Julie. “So we decided to fly there for a blessing afterwards.” At the UK service - held in an Indian restaurant in Leicester - the pair walked back down the aisle to their favorite Above & Beyond track, ‘Good For Me’ before setting off for Goa, Their destination: Anjuna Beach, name-sake of A&B’s label, Anjunabeats.
"As it happened, Above & Beyond were playing at Sunburn festival, which was near where we were. We met two English girls there who had won a competition to meet them." Before they knew it, Julie and Myron were whisked backstage to meet Paavoi Siljamäki and Jono Grant. "It was a perfect day, " says Julie.
