Beccy and Richard Hawley tied the knot in front of 125 friends and family at Ottery St Mary Parish Church on May 19.

The couple, from Honiton, had set their big day seven months before the royal couple’s announcement.

Beccy said: “It was really amazing. It was everything we wanted. We had our friends and family and it was so relaxed, we couldn’t think of anything different we would do.”

At the reception, the couple were able to enjoy royal champagne, sent to them by the Duchess of Cornwall as a congratulations. As a toast to the royal couple, they asked Richard’s cousin Harry and Beccy’s goddaughter Megan to stand up.
