The Cast

The Bride


Career girl Sarah is the ultimate multi-tasking working mum juggling a busy job and children whilst at the same time being a school governor and Sunday school leader. When she does manage to grab a few minutes of spare time her favourite activities are gardening, knitting, baking (Mary Berry’s traybakes are simply the best!) and relaxing with a lovely cup of Earl Grey. Every now and again you can also find her trying out a new local restaurant and catching up on all the latest news with the girls.

The Groom


Suave and debonair; Jonny is a man for all seasons. Highly intelligent with impeccable taste and appreciative of fine craft. A lover of exquisite beers from around the world. He's a keen cycling fan who can talk all day long about the classics and grand tours. A coffee aficionado and wannabe barista (just don't get him started on burnt milk in shop bought latte). This music maestro is always searching for new bands to listen too, preferably on vinyl. Oh, and he's a really nice (and modest) fella to boot.

Bridesmaid No 1


Wonderful big sister Vivien is really looking forward to being mummy’s chief bridesmaid. Inclined to the creative side of life, schoolgirl Vivien enjoys Art & Craft and Papermoose textiles club as well as French and chess. Her creative talents extend to the modern as well as traditional media and she has been known to put together some pretty mean Powerpoint presentations. Her favourite time of the week though is Saturday morning swimming with mummy, jumping in the deep end together.

Bridesmaid No 2


Livewire Daphne is the sporty member of the family and is often to be found speeding around Kingston on her scooter with mummy or daddy anxiously in pursuit. She is the ultimate girly girl, refusing to wear anything but dresses or skirts, preferably in pink and purple. Daphne’s favourite activity is playing with her friend Greta.

The Best Man


Jonny and Mark have been great friends since nursery school. Their shared interests of cycling, beer and music have kept these homeboys tight. They have spent many an evening contemplating life on a park bench with the aid of strong cider or the occasional mix of white wine and Scottish whisky. Mark is a connoisseur of fine music and can often be found spinning his vast collection of vinyl discs on indie-pop Friday at Dowman acres. With a hankering for the gee-gees and a fully paid subscription to The Chap magazine, he truly is a gentleman and a scholar.

Getting There


Kingston is very busy with shoppers on Saturday mornings and you should allow plenty of time to get to the church especially if you are approaching from the West along the A308.

There are a limited amount of metered parking spaces in the roads around the church. These are regularly patrolled by overzealous traffic wardens who love to issue parking tickets. We will have a limited number of parking permits on the day but your best bet is to park inside Richmond Park and walk to the church from there. It's only a 5 minute walk away and the parking is free. Be aware that the park gates will be locked from dusk if you are staying for the evening party. You would therefore need to move your car after 6:30pm (when the parking wardens knock off for the day) to a nearby road. Car sharing would be a good idea if possible.


The nearest railway station is Norbiton and is located in zone 5 (for those of you with Oyster cards). The church is only a 10 minute walk away. This is a pretty good option if it works for you.

Staying Over

The best bet here is to search for suitable options on,,,, or You can take a look at for reviews of where to stay.

The groom's party will be staying at the Richmond Hill Hotel on Friday 23rd August and will be joined by the bride on Saturday 24th August.

Wedding Gifts

Don't feel that you need to get us anything. We don't really need lots of stuff because we're not setting up a new home or anything like that. If you turn up and have a good time and take away some memories then that's enough for us.


If you would still like to get us a gift and would like to contribute to something that we'd make great use of then a small monetary gift would be much appreciated. It would help us to purchase the following:

The Fat Duck
We'd like to pay a visit to Heston Blumenthal's restaurant (The Fat Duck) in Bray during the week after the wedding. If you would like to contribute to a gift voucher that would be great.
Coffee Machine
At least one of us is a coffee fiend and we're saving up for a fantastic espresso machine (with PID), an electronic grinder, and a knock box and tamper. If you'd like to help us enjoy superb coffee every day then you can contribute to the caffeine addiction fund.
Personal Gift
If you'd like to make your own mark on something personal then knock yourself out and surprise us!


If all of that sounds frivolous then a contribution to one of the following charities would be a lovely gesture:

Leukaemia and
Sarah’s mum Rose died of leukaemia in 1998 and Sarah has been a keen supporter of Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research ever since, including running, jogging and eventually just walking in 7 Race for Life’s (it’s an age thing).
Tearfund is a Christian charity working through local church partners and disaster response teams in more than 50 countries around the world. They work particularly in Africa, Asia and South America – and also across Eastern Europe and The UK.
The NSPCC’s vision is to end cruelty to children in the UK. They campaign to change the law, provide ChildLine and the NSPCC helpline service, offer advice for adults and much more.

The easiest way to donate is on-line via the charity’s website and even better if you are able to GiftAid the donation as the charity will receive more without it costing a penny extra.


We would appreciate if you could confirm your attendance as soon as you can and if possible by the end of May. We do plan to have some activities running during the afternoon for younger children and there will be a children’s lunchtime meal as an alternative to the wedding buffet.
