THE guest list was worthy of the pages of Crockford when Chris and Teresa Hughes, who met at York Minster, were married there last Friday.
Duncan Lomax, Ravage ProductionsNuptials: the family and friends of Teresa and Chris Hughes, outside York Minster, last FridayThey were married by the Dean of Ely, the Very Revd Mark Bonney, who is Mrs Hughes’s godfather. Mrs Hughes works in the Visitors Department at the Minster, and Mr Hughes is a Verger. The Archbishop of York, Dr Sentamu, gave a blessing, and the Bishop of Beverley, the Rt Revd Glyn Webster, preached.
Mr Hughes said: “We were awed to start our married life together in the place we call home, York Minster.”
Mrs Hughes said: “We feel so overwhelmed with love, kindness, and support.”
Although the couple met in 2013, their families have known each other for more than 35 years. Mr Hughes’s parents are the Archdeacon of Bedford, the Ven. Paul Hughes, and the Revd Liz Hughes, the senior chaplain at Luton Airport. Both trained for ordination at Cuddesdon, where they first met Teresa Hughes’s parents: Canon Chris Collingwood, Chancellor at York Minster, and his wife, Sue, a complementary therapist.
