Bride's wedding plea

A couple due to have their dream winter wedding tomorrow are appealing for help to make sure their special day goes ahead.
Tracey Vincent and Matthew Bond, who got engaged in July, are due to get married at the church in the remote village of Dode.
But heavy snowfall means roads leading to the village, near Snodland, are almost impassable. The couple, of Fowler Close, Wigmore, have been in contact with farmers near Dode who have been clearing the roads regularly.

Mother-of-one Tracey said: “The church is medieval and really Christmassy. It’s torchlit and decorated with holly and we thought to get married there in December would be lovely.
“A little bit of snow would have been lovely but this is not good.”
“We had a farmer out ploughing the road on Wednesday and he was going to it again today. Hopefully that will make it accessible.”
A number of the couple’s friends have 4x4s and it is estimated around 20 of the 40 guests will be able to get transport to the wedding.
But delivery problems meant by this morning the men’s suits had not arrived, and the couple had no food for their reception because their caterer was unable to get deliveries from suppliers.
Tracey, 33, said: “If anyone can help with transport we’d really appreciate it. If you’ve got a 4x4 or a tractor that can help get us through the roads, that would be brilliant.”
If the couple are unable to make it to Dode to get married they may be able to get married at their reception venue, Little Hermitage in Higham. They will have to apply to Medway Register Office for permission to do so.
