A Halloween masked ball for Jenny and Peter

hellomagazine.com Last 31 October Jenny Church and Peter Fletcher Shaw were married in a civil ceremony at Priston Mill near Bath.

The wedding followed a Venetian masked ball theme, which was inspired by the time Jenny spent living in Venice.

All the guests made masks and Jenny, a primary school teacher, gave out awards for the best ones.

During the ceremony friends recited poems, including one originally read by Carrie in Sex and the City. Afterwards, the newlyweds exited to the accompaniment of a brass quartet.

"We had the best day ever and at least my husband has no excuse to ever forget our anniversary," said Jenny, whose friend surprised her with carved pumpkins to light the way to their Halloween day wedding ceremony.
