A Quiet Divorce Announcement

The couple’s separation, which happened quietly earlier this year, marks the end of a significant chapter in their lives.
From Glastonbury to Marriage
James Sutton and his now-ex-wife, Rachael Collin, first crossed paths at the Glastonbury Festival eight years ago.
Their connection deepened over time, leading to a wedding three years later.
Their journey from festival grounds to the wedding aisle was filled with love and memorable moments.
A Sad but Amicable Farewell
In an interview with the Mirror, James Sutton opened up about the end of his marriage, describing it as both sad and amicable.
He emphasized the positive aspects of their relationship, stating, “Rachael and I had a wonderful relationship and marriage. It was very sad but amicable, and we remain friends.”
Lockdown Struggles Take a Toll
Like many couples during the lockdown period, James and Rachael faced challenges in their relationship. Sources reveal that the strain caused by the pandemic played a role in their decision to part ways.
James, a public figure, and Rachael, who prefers a more private life, found themselves on different paths.
The Beginning at Glastonbury
Their love story began at Glastonbury when James, ever the gentleman, assisted Rachael in setting up her camping area.
A simple act of kindness sparked a connection that would lead them to years of happiness, but ultimately a different destination.
From Postgraduate to Love Transcending Borders
Rachael, at the time a postgraduate student, made a significant move to be with James in Liverpool.
Their love was strong enough to withstand the challenges of distance and adjustments.
They even returned to Glastonbury, where it all began, to exchange their wedding vows.
A Previous Engagement
Before Rachael, James Sutton was engaged to model Kit Williams.
Their engagement lasted for two years before the relationship came to an end in 2017, marking another chapter in James’s romantic history.
