This year’s 1940s weekend has special meaning for one Sheringham couple, as it marks exactly a year since they got married in a wartime-style ceremony at St Peter’s Church in the town.
Nearly 400 people packed the pews for the wedding, with Mrs Harbord’s sons Elijah, 11, and six-year-old Vincent giving her away and her daughter Sylvie, 13, and Tom’s sister Ruby, 14, taking on the role of bridesmaids.
They will be joining 50-plus couples at a vow renewal ceremony being hosted by the church on Saturday.
“We have wonderful memories of the wedding,” Mrs Harbord said. “We had friends come from all over the world and to have the ceremony as part of the forties weekend meant everybody celebrated with us, which was just lovely.”
Anyone wanting to renew their vows should be at St Peter’s Church, Church Street, at 2pm on Saturday. Forties dress is optional, refreshments will be available and there will be a chance to have a photo taken looking through a 1940s wedding cut-out.
