Chapter 14: “A wedding”

On the 17th June, friends and family got the news that Nige would be marrying Mandy Hillier, one of his closest friends who had been with him from the start of his cancer journey.

Reverend Tom Benson conducted the service beautifully. And the weather was perfect.

Nigel had saved up his energy for the day. His health was deteriorating quite rapidly, but he was still bringing family and friends together and creating wonderful memories.

17 June 2018

You are warmly invited to celebrate the wedding of Mandy and Nigel

Tom Benson, St.Petroc’s sage and gentle vicar, will lead an Anglican liturgy to bless and celebrate  our commitment to each other in our beautiful medieval village church. It will be a very personal, informal ceremony and light on tradition.

We hope you will be able to join us on Sunday 1st July 2018, 3.30pm, at St.Petroc’s Church, South Brent to share in this celebration, and then afterwards at The Oak, Station Road, South Brent, for an informal buffet meal, and a few glasses of fizzy.

We know this is incredibly short notice but would be really grateful if you could reply by Thursday 21st  June,  whether you are able  to come, so we can finalise the arrangements.

You can reply  by email to Mandy or Nigel. 

We really hope you can join us and please come in something colourful, fun and fabulous!

With love

Mandy and Nigel
