Watch: “I fell in love with copper… then I fell in love with Ġorġ.”

Did you know that Maltese academic and cartoonist Ġorġ Mallia and Danish metal artist Marie Louise Kold were married?

The two love-birds were recently guests on the RTK 103FM radio programme Kun Afhom Aħjar and they spoke about how they met quite twenty-five years ago, initially as friends… a friendship which many years down the line blossomed into love and eventually marriage.

“For our wedding we didn’t want a big party… we wanted it to be about love.”

Ġorġ and Marie Louise were married 15 months ago in Lund, choosing stunning botanical gardens as their venue; more specifically, they said their vows under a beautiful sycamore tree in the company of just a few select guests and the wedding photographer.

Now they divide their time between Malta and Sweden – which they describe as being the hardest part of their relationship – while they continue to work in their different but similar artistic spheres.
