A touch of the Middle Ages came to Tonge at the weekend.
It was for the wedding of Andrew Lovell, 49, and Annette Feighery, 46, who decided on a medieval theme for their ceremony and reception.
The bride arrived at St Giles Church on horseback wearing a white dress styled on the middle ages, while the groom’s Tudor-period costume was a nod to Henry VIII.
Saturday’s congregation got in the spirt, with all 60 guests in outfits which were all the rage more than 500 years ago.
In honour of the history-based nuptials, the bells of the medieval church sounded for the first time in nearly 30 years.
A hog roast, tarot readings, fire-eating display and stocks hired from a props company were pencilled in to keep the medieval theme going during the reception.
Web designer Andrew, from Coombe Drive, Murston, added an extra air of eccentricity to an already extraordinary occasion by limping up the aisle wearing one shoe, having broken his leg two months ago.
