Becky Pearey (Official First Aider) and Jamie Hansell (ONA Chairman and founding member) will finally be tying the knot at St Nicholas Church in Gosforth on July 11. However, Becky’s parents are setting off early so they can quarantine for 14 days before her dad walks her down the aisle – at a social distance of course.
Their wedding plans were thrown into turmoil when coronavirus kicked in and lockdown put in place. But now the two lovebirds are going full guns blazing for their big day on July 11 after restrictions were partially lifted.
It was over a year ago when they first booked their wedding day at St Nicholas Church in Gosforth, Newcastle and they were keeping their fingers crossed it would go ahead after the government cancelled all weddings when restrictions were tighter.
As from July 4 weddings can go ahead again but Becky’s parents, Sue and Keith Pearey, who live in Paris, are setting off at the weekend so they can quarantine for 14 days before attending the wedding of their daughter – despite now hearing plans are in the pipeline for those quarantine rules to change.
“We had planned to have the reception and evening do at Doxford Hall but because of coronavirus they aren’t opening until later in the summer, so we are having to postpone that until next year”.
“Instead we hope that we can have a glass of champagne and afternoon tea at the church”.
“I have been so excited for our wedding and I have been emailing Rev Jane Nattrass every week asking questions. She’s just as excited as we are that weddings can now go ahead from July 4”. – Becky.
With the evening event planned for where else but the official Old Novos FC sponsor The Blue Bell Jesmond Vale, it’s fair to say the day will be a celebration shared by family, friends and team mates alike.
Congratulations to the happy couple on what will be an incredible day. We can’t wait to celebrate with you both.
