Lewes Town Hall had never seen anything quite like it when Charlie Cooper and Fergus Marco decided to tie the knot.

The venue travelled back in time to the medieval era for their wedding.

Not only were the happy couple resplendent in medieval garb, but also most of the 80 guests at the ceremony.

More was to come at the evening reception when the Town Hall was decorated with banners and flags as 200 sat down to an old-fashioned banquet.

Bride Charlie, in a flowing cream dress and carrying a bouquet of gerberas, was led to the service by her sons Toby and Jacob, dressed as knights, and attended by medieval maidens and flower girls Jane Ely, Louise John, Phoebe John and Rhea Ely.

Her father Alex Murray came as a crusader knight and ushers were Daniel Murray and Harry Merret, dressed as Robin Hood and ‘The Executioner’ respectively.

The groom’s stepfather Terry VanBierendonk was King Arthur, complete with heavyweight chain mail armour and a cloak.

The couple live in Bridge Farm Road, Uckfield. Charlie is a dispenser at Buxted Medical Centre while Fergus works at Sussex County Gardens, Mark Cross. Her proud mother, Trish Murray, said: “It was an amazing wedding and our daughter and her new husband loved their day.”
