While some brides dream of limousines or carriages on their wedding day, one Marlborough bride was looking for something a bit different.

On August 28, Marlborough residents Caroline Treacher and Ben Harrop were married in St Mary’s Church in Kingsbury Street.

Caroline’s father Malcolm, who had served in the RAF as an airframe technician at RAF Lyneham, sadly passed away six years ago.

He had owned a number of old Land Rovers, so as a way to remember her father on her wedding day, Caroline had decided that she wanted to be driven to the church in an old Rover with her six-year old son, Eden, and her mother Liz.

Liz Treacher, from Pewsey, made an appeal through Pewsey Vale U3A to ask if anyone knew of an old Land Rover which might take Caroline to and from the church.

Thankfully Steve Potter came forward to help. Caroline, Liz and Eden were transported in the Land Rover from the Castle and Ball Hotel on the High St to St Mary’s Church in Kingsbury St.

After the wedding, Caroline, her husband Ben and son Eden travelled in Land Rover luxury from The Green behind the church to the reception in Marlborough Golf Club.

As a tribute to Malcolm, the ex-military Land Rover wore RAF roundels on the front and back.
