Jan and David sent 40 invitations out for their wedding day, but you wouldn’t believe how many people turned up…
Jan and David sent 40 invitations to their wedding ceremony at Bethesda Baptist Church. However, a surprise was in stall. On March 25th 2017, not only did 40 guests show up…but an extra 160 smiling faces arrived to share in the celebration of their love!
Jan and David have a strong loving connection with the church. By the unexpected turn out, it was clear to see how important Jan and David are in the church community.
Having 160 extra friends turn up was not the only wonderful enlightenment of their day. Believe or not, Jan, sadly, suffers from Motor Neuron Disease. Yet Jan and David have such a warm positive glow, and a thankfulness for life, that we would never suspect a thing. They had thought that Jan may need to be in a wheelchair for the wedding, but something sprinkled an extra bit of joy on these two and Jan had no need for a wheelchair all day long!
The couple joined in unison at their local church and headed to The Key cafe for Tea and Cake! Of course they had only expected 40 guests, and therefore had only chosen a small intimate cafe. The herds of guests formed a long winding queue outside, to each in turn get their cake! It really was quite a sight.
To conclude their day we were all joined at the Ipswich and Suffolk Club, a fantastically traditional building with a delicious menu!
Congratulations Jan and David, we wish you every best wish for the future!
