LOCAL newly weds Lora and Tom George had a white wedding to remember, when even their cake had to be brought by tractor from Newent to Ledbury, because of heavy snow.
Despite the white out, Lora and Tom were determined that their wedding last Saturday should go ahead as planned, and what followed was a heart warming epic of community good will, with moments of near disaster along the way.
On Friday, Lora, aged 29, crashed her car on the Tenbury Road, while returning from a dress fitting;
but she managed to tease the damaged vehicle back to Bromyard, where it was abandoned.
Meanwhile, the wedding cake was making its slow but steady procession by tractor from the premises of Newent cake maker, Carly Jones to Ledbury, down the scenic snow filled lanes.
This blizzard run was accomplished by Tom’s big hearted boss, local tree surgeon Adrian Hope. At Ledbury, another of Tom’s friends, Ben Linton and Tom were waiting with a 4 x 4, to get the cake back to Preston Wynne.
On the big day itself, Tom and his friends spent hours clearing the snow from the roads abound the couple’s house,
with the help of Harry Chase of the Chase Distillery and Ben Linton.
