Dave and Vicki Marry

After years of planning Dave Hobday and Vicki Brereton married today at Rowton Castle, Shropshire. The much loved couple tied the knot, and then walked back down the aisle to the sound of Disney.


As well as the large number of guests invited to attend the ceremony scores of well wishers descended on Rowton hoping to catch a glimpse of the happy couple. Against all odds the forecasted rain held off until all guests were inside for the wedding breakfast. Asked whether God himself had leant a hand in the change of weather, David Hobday replied "Yes, yes I did".
