A couple have thanked Warwickshire Registration Service and Ashton Lodge Country House in Stretton Under Fosse, Rugby, for their “kindness, support and patience” after they tied the knot in one of the first ceremonies in Warwickshire following the easing of lockdown restrictions.
The wedding ceremony of Megan Lupton and David Landwehr, who live on the edge of Leicester, took place on Monday 6th July, just two days after weddings could officially restart following updated Government COVID-19 guidelines.
Originally the couple had planned to marry on 28th March, but they had to postpone their ceremony when lockdown restrictions were imposed. Megan and David contacted the registrars from Rugby Registration Office and staff at Ashton Lodge Country House after their ceremony to thank them for their support over the last few months in making their wedding day a reality.
Speaking about the occasion, Megan said: “Honestly the wedding was the most beautiful day. Strange and sanitary, but as perfect as we could have wanted it to be. Having stripped away the extras, the room full of guests, photographers and wedding planners, it simply became a celebration of two people's love for one another.”
It was a far more intimate wedding than the couple had originally planned, with just a small number of guests able to attend due to the current restrictions ~ but Megan and David will celebrate again in March next year with the family and friends who couldn't attend their wedding service.
Superintendent Registrar for Warwickshire Registration Services, Di Lampard, said: “We were delighted to enable Megan and David to say ‘I do’ at one of the first weddings in Warwickshire after lockdown ~ and to help ensure that it was a day they will always remember for all the right reasons.”
