Student Natasha Griffiths and apprentice electrician Tom Richardson were married at St Mary’s Church in Battle last month (July 26th).
The bride walked down the aisle to Eva Cassidy’s Songbird sung by her sister Hayley-Jay Graves. Her mother Kirsty and cousin Rebecca Miller were also bridesmaids and her Man of Honour was Samuel Monks.
Natasha, 21, was driven to the church by a representative of Kent, Surrey & Sussex Air Ambulance, the charity that saved her life following a road accident four years ago.
She wore an ivory-coloured dress with short train, tiara and veil, and held a teardrop-shaped bouquet of mauve lilies as she was given away by her grandmother Carol Graves.
Tom, 21, is the son of Kevin and Tessa Richardson, from Bexhill, and his best man was friend Brad Standen.
The couple met at Claverham Community College where they were pupils and exited the church to Ellie Goulding’s How Long Will I Love You, before releasing 21 butterflies.
The ushers were the groom’s school friends Ben Thorne and Matthew Budd, and the bride’s younger brother Riley. Her other brothers Henry and Joey were page boys.
A reception was held at nearby Stumbletts Barn and featured a bouncy castle, coconut shy, wellie wanging and hog roast.
Tom and Natasha enjoyed a two-week honeymoon in the Dominican Republic and will make their home in Battle.
