Congratulations Lucy and Rupert

The wedding of Lucy Heber-Percy to Rupert Kenyon took place at a packed St. Luke’s Church on Saturday (25/09/2010). The Right Reverend Mark Rylands, Bishop of Shrewsbury, conducted the wedding service with the Reverend Charmian Beech leading the prayers.
A radiant bride and groom were joined by family and friends from all over the world to celebrate the occasion together. A reception was held after the service at Hodnet Hall, the day being further blessed by beautiful autumn sunshine.
May Lucy and Rupert have a long and loving life together.
