A Wedding of Note in Gloucestershire

Peter Hewitt Nash and Joan Mary Barnfield were married on 14 August 1948 at St. James Church, Stoke Orchard, Gloucestershire.

The wedding was of special interest as it was the first marriage ceremony ever performed in the eight hundred year old church which had not previously been licensed to conduct such rites.

The accompanying photo was from a contemporary news item in a local paper.
