A COUPLE who are keen motorcyclists got married in style in Trowbridge and spent their honeymoon marshalling at this year’s Isle of Man Time Trial races.

Penny White, of Trowbridge, married Steve Lambert, from Frome, at County Hall in Trowbridge on Saturday, May 25.

A nurse who has worked in the Trowbridge GP surgery for over 21 years, Penny also spent three years in the minor injuries unit at Trowbridge Community Hospital.

She arrived for the wedding ceremony on a Honda motor trike driven by her friend Lez Foote accompanied by large motorcycle escort of friends from all over the country.

The best man was Steve’s son Gordon and his daughter Jessica was in charge of the ring and the music. Penny was walked down the aisle by her son Anthony.

After the wedding, a 12-strong group of friends from the Royal British Legion’s Riders Branch raised motorcycle helmets as a guard of honour.

Penny said: “It was an amazing day and the weather was fantastic. We caused quite a scene as we went down the Frome Road in Trowbridge and on into Frome.

“We held our reception for around 100 people at the Kilmington Home Guard Club near Stourhead.”

Penny met her new husband through an internet dating website about seven years ago. It is the second marriage for both.

She has only been riding motorcycles for four years and owns a Suzuki GSX1400, while Steve has ridden motorcycles for most of his life and owns a BMW GTL1600.

They are both keen motorcyclists and are spending their 11-day honeymoon marshalling at the famous Isle of Man TT Races.

Penny added: “Although some of the races have been washed out, the camaraderie among the biking community here is fantastic.”
