A Colchester Town Hall Wedding followed by a reception in a railway museum is what Victoria and Tom told me they had planned for their wedding day. I met them a few weeks beforehand and they told me of their plans, the more they told me the more excited I was, as it sounded very different with lots happening throughout the day.
The day started with their guests being driven from the East Anglia Railway Museum in Chappel by a red London bus to Colchester Town Hall for their wedding ceremony. Tom’s grandparents met when they worked on the number 11 bus route and Victoria and Tom had arranged for their bus to be identical to the bus they had worked on together all those years ago.
Victoria arrived at the town hall in Tom’s dad’s pride and joy, his VW camper van. That turned a few heads when it pulled up outside the town hall.
Following the wedding at Colchester Town Hall, Victoria, Tom and their guests all drove back to Chappel in the number 11 bus. The guests enjoyed drinks at The Swan pub while we went to the Chappel Viaduct, Victoria and Tom wanted to have some photographs taken there. The viaduct was built in 1846, it took 600 local men two years to build, using 7 million bricks and all for the pricely sum of £21,000! It is a truely amazing structure.
We then went back to the Railway Museum where their guests were waiting in the Goods shed to welcome the newlyweds. I’d never been to a wedding before with a railway carriage in the room.
The day was very relaxed, Victoria and Tom celebrated their wedding day in a very unique way and most of all their family and friends had a fantastic time.
