Barbara and Bryan Freemantle

Barbara and Bryan renewed their wedding-vows, after slightly
more than nine years of marriage, on Sunday, October 29th,
2017. The Minister conducted this special service, which
was attended by Barbara and Bryan's family and friends, as
well as by church-members. Bryan suffers from dementia,
so the couple wished to repeat their promises whilst they still
held significance for Bryan. Barbara cemented her vows by
singing "When you walk through a storm", from "Carousel",
to Bryan. The children present were entertained by a story
chosen by Barbara: "The Scarecrows' Wedding". Afterwards,
all the guests were able to congratulate the happy couple,
before adjourning to the church-gardens for photographs.
A celebratory meal was held at Stone's Restaurant. This was
an enjoyable, moving and meaningful occasion, much enjoyed
by those present, but by nobody more so than Barbara and Bryan.
