Kerry-May Silman, 25, and Matthew David Edward Lord, 27, were married on Friday April 16 at the Parish Church of St. Peter and St. Paul in Kings Sutton, Banbury.

The wedding service was followed by a small, intimate reception with 15 people, including the wedding couple outside in the Butchers Arms pub garden in Kings Sutton.

Kerry-May Lord said: “The day was perfect even when the best man (Ashley Webber) forgot the rings and had to run back to the pub!

“I surprised Matt with a Two Hearts Wedding Car Hire car. We were very spoiled when he was driven around in the owner’s Chevrolet Camaro.

“Wayne Sellwood and Karen Hales of the Butchers Arms made our micro-wedding reception so good. They arranged the Hook Norton Brewery Shire horses to be when we arrived. That was amazing because I loved them as a kid remember. We must have photos of horses and the tradition of giving the horse a pint of hooky beer! “

A lifelong resident of King’s Sutton, Kerry-May is the daughter of Ronald and Angela Silman of Kings Sutton. Matthew Lord, originally from Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire but now from King’s Sutton, is the son of Jo and Michael Lord.

Madam Lord added, “We were the first wedding in the church since the lockdown. We were also one of the last couples to sign the wedding registry the traditional way before it all went electronic.

“We were supposed to get married at a local hotel, but due to the changed restrictions, we postponed the wedding just in time for our bans to be read.

“Father Matthew Robinson went out of his way to make us comfortable and everything went smoothly. I felt away. It should be like my late grandmother had a very close connection with the Church.”

The couple tried to keep all wedding suppliers as local as possible. They used Looby Loo’s Cakes from Banbury, photographer Sam Bennett from Banbury (www.sambennettphotography.co.uk), videographer Shannon Payne from Banbury, Two Hearts Wedding Cars from Brackley and makeup by Laura Horton at The Beauty Shed in Banbury .
