While millions of people watched a certain royal event on TV, a somewhat smaller but no less special wedding was taking place that same day in Alvechurch.

Sue Phillips and Roger Wardle, both members of Alvechurch Community Choir and St Laurence Church, tied the knot at the church in glorious sunshine – with plenty of music from their friends in the choir.

Sue and Roger were led down the aisle by their 17 grandchildren, and the guests included Bishop Alejandro Mesco and his wife Doris, all the way from Peru, where St Laurence is twinned with a church in Arequipa.

Sue has visited Peru and is a member of the church’s Peru Missionary Committee.

The bishop gave a blessing to the happy couple, before the ceremony was brought to a close with the choir singing Bring Me Sunshine.
