The Wedding
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

July 5, 2012: Following behind the behind the award winning Hatherleigh Silver Band, the newly weds Mr and Mrs Smith, Jeff and Kate, The proud father of the bride Mike Llyod said “As lovers of Hatherleigh from her many visits our daughter held her wedding here- and what a fantastic venue it proved to be. From the beautiful church to the wonderful facilities of the Community Centre, the town really came into its own with what it has to offer.
With some 140 guests spread across pubs, b&bs and hotels in the area, many came to make a week-end of it (including that odd breed who only know Devon as a place you pass through to get to Cornwall).
Countless people commented on just how friendly and warm the people they met were, and what a lovely town we live in.
It was a great opportunity to showcase local produce from Edwards the butchers, Pete's homebake, and a show-stopping cheese 'Wedding Cake', from The Cheese Pantry. Many enjoyed meals and snacks in the pubs, deli, and tea-room, and one family were grateful for the Riverside kennels, and of course live music from local band 'Indecision', and The Avatars from Tavistock.
The success of the wedding day owed much to the contributions of the many friends and neighbours that helped make it a personal rather than 'off the shelf' event - the last minute commadeering of Brian and his Jag, a magnificant church service by Ruth, the bell-ringers, and organist Marjorie Cleverdon, the hair of the bride and bridesmaids by Jo, photo's by our neighbour Debbie, all the staff at the Community Centre, and to the great surprise and joy of the bride, the wonderful Hatherleigh Silver Band to lead the wedding procession as even the rain took a break as people came out to wave us by.
A truely memorable day, and Devon's smallest town at its biggest and best.”
