Family join diamond wedding celebrations
A NAILSEA couple were surrounded by their family to mark their diamond wedding anniversary.
Jean and Gordon Fenn were married 60 years ago and celebrated the occasion by enjoying a meal at the Moorend Spout pub with 26 of their family members on August 18.
The occasion was the first time in many years the couple’s four children, Mandy, Nick, Simon and Richard, had been together.
Simon travelled from Canada to be part of the celebrations and Jean and Gordon’s nephew, Stephen, also travelled from Hong Kong.
The Southfield Road couple married at St Leonard’s Church in Redfield, Bristol, on August 18, 1951, and honeymooned in St Ives, a place they revisited last week with Simon.
