Thanet has had its first mayor and mayoress wedding.
Mayor of Broadstairs and St Peter’s, Paul Moore, and mayoress Wendy, nee Steele, tied the knot at a ceremony at St Lawrence College in Ramsgate yesterday (October 13).
The pair have been partners for 12 years today (October 14).
The venue was chosen as it is the former school of firefighter trainer Paul. Paul’s son, who is serving at Sandringham with the Army, was the best man.
Paul also served in the forces, joining the Queen’s Regiment Territorial Army after leaving school and later serving as a platoon commander in B Company the 3rd Battalion Queens Regt in Cyprus and the Falklands.
He left the Army in 1991 and in 1993 joined the Kent Fire and Rescue Service.
Bride Wendy, a former Holy Cross student, arrived with her father in a double-decker red bus which took the guests to North Foreland golf course after the service .
