Wedding in St. Mary's

Christopher McCabe of London , and Catherine Hoyle of Castramon House were married in glorious sunshine at St. Mary's church Gatehouse on Saturday 24th August . The best man was Bert Sampson, and the bridesmaids were Emily
Hoyle, Nicola McCabe & Sophie Odenthal . The organist was Susan Smyth, the harpist Nana Welsh, the readers Robin Calshaw & Sophie Odenthal , and the celebrant was Rev. Stephen Hazlett. The service included the eucharist ; the chalice used was that which the groom's mother and father had created for their wedding. The bride was " given away" by her father Neil Hoyle , who despite serious ill health remained proudly at his daughter's side . Sadly Neil died peacefully at home exactly one week later
