A village flower festival this weekend will be an especially happy time for the local rector.
For the Rev Fergus Capie and his wife got married at Lammas church last weekend.
Now they in the thick of another village celebration, which sees St Andrew's church bedecked with floral arrangements on a Let's Give Thanks theme.
Mr Capie said the theme 'isn't difficult to do in a place like Lammas where everybody co-operates so well for a wonderful occasion like this.'
Villagers have been moving furniture from the village hall to the church for the event which runs Saturday and Sunday from 11am to 5pm.

On Saturday evening, villagers are holding a ticket-only Tapas bar with classical guitar in the churchyard.
On Sunday evening at 6.30pm there is a Songs of Praise service, which has been made more 'interactive and democratic', to encourage allcomers including those who would not normally attend a church service.
Visitors to the flower festival are being invited to vote for their favourite hymns and the top half-dozen will be sung at the service.
