A NEWLYWED couple were thrilled when they opened the Journal the day before their wedding and saw themselves in Terry Shelbourne’s cartoon.
Angie Jarman-Round, of Newark Lane, Carlton Scroop, said it made her journey to Grantham Register Office in a lorry even more special.
She said: “I thought it was absolutely brilliant. The drawing of the bloke driving the lorry even looks just like my uncle, everybody said so.”
Angie decided to travel to her wedding, which took place last Saturday, in a lorry after her uncle Charlie Brackenbury, who was the driver on the day, suggested it.
Her husband Rob Round thought at first that she was joking but after getting confirmation from Angie’s uncle he told her to do it if that was what she wanted.
Before the bride left Carlton Scroop in the lorry Rob and Charlie decorated it with ribbons and bows so it was fit for the occasion.
Rob said: “I thought it was funny because she had to sit in the lorry while everyone was looking.”
Angie said as she was driven into Grantham and her uncle turned the flashing lights on the lorry she became the centre of attention.
She said: “Everybody was looking and laughing, you could see some people were thinking that they’d seen the story in the Journal.”
Angie and Rob would like to thank the lorry’s owner Roy Hill Haulage for letting her use the lorry and her uncle for the suggestion.
Angie added: “It was a good decision to go to the wedding in a lorry. I would do it again.”
