Daily Echo: Abbey to host ceremony for long-term marriages Abbey to host ceremony for long-term marriages

LONG-term marriages across Hampshire will be celebrated at a special service.

Couples who have been married between 60 and 75 years will gather at Romsey Abbey to give thanks for their marriages and also for the Queen’s 65th wedding anniversary in November and the Diamond Jubilee year.

The Queen has also sent a message to be read out at the service, which will include a renewal of vows for the couples.

This unique celebration, on November 24 at 2pm, will be led by the Vicar of Romsey, the Rev Tim Sledge, assisted by the Pastor of St Sebastians Community Church, the Rev Paul Burrows-Gibson.

This was an outstanding celebration with over 350 people attending. Many thanks to over 100 couples who renewed their vows at the service. Special thanks also to Catherine at www.wishcakes.co.uk for the donation of the celebration cake and also to the couples thanks messages we have received since. We hope to do something again next year for those married between 25-50 years
