Jeremy and Adrie met 25 years ago in Amsterdam and are getting married in June 2019. They divide their time between Pouzols-Minervois, London and Somerset in England.
"Jeremy worked at the Amsterdam Stock Exchange at the time," Adrie explains. "When he was transferred to London, so we both moved there. Now he is retired and I continue to advise government and financial sector clients in the UK on how to create more engaging websites."
They spend their spare time travelling the world and keeping whippets at their home in rural Somerset. Their passion is to make Le Fort the perfect home to share with friends and other guests.
