A couple who married on the same day at the Duke and Duchess of Sussex said they would not have changed a thing about their special day.
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.
Richard said: “It was really emotional. She looked absolutely stunning and beautiful. There is nothing that I would have changed about the day or Rebecca.”
The couple will have their honeymoon to Las Vegas, Bora Bora and Santa Monica.
