The wedding of Rebecca and David took place at the Parish Church of St Gwynan, Dwygyfylchi, on Saturday, August 24, 2019.
The village of Dwygyfylchi, bathed suitably in sunshine, is named after two circular forts. Namely, Penmaenbach and Penmaenmawr joined by Dwygyfylchi.
The similarity of a wedding immediately also comes to mind. Two families merging together to become one. Happiness very much in the air.
Choir Entertains at Wedding of Rebecca and David
The assembled congregation appreciated the pre-service entertainment provided by the Denbigh and District Male Voice Choir.
Each song warmly and generously applauded. Moreover, conductor Arwyn Roberts and accompanist Nia Jones responding in kind on behalf of the choir.
The choir ended up singing for half an hour to await the arrival of the bride.
Her house adjoins the churchyard but The Reverend Canon Berw Hughes, in his inimitable style, said that the traffic was heavy that morning. Much hilarity in the church.
The Arrival of the Bride
Rebecca made her arrival, with her delightful entourage, to Wagner’s Wedding March on the church organ.
Following a warm bilingual welcome from the Rev. Berw Hughes the congregation and choir sang the eternal favourite ‘Calon Lan’ (Pure Heart) with joy.
Rebecca’s daughter, Brooke, read 1 Corinthians 13, with poise, good diction, and without falter. It brought a lump to many a throat.
The marriage vows and rings exchanged with grace and humour. The marriage blessed by The Rev Berw Hughes.
The congregational Hymn ‘Guide me, O thou Great Redeemer’ once again raised the roof of the delightful church of St Gwynan.
Signing of Register at wedding of Rebecca and David
During the signing of the register the choir sang the requested ‘Welsh Trilogy’, Ar Hyd y Nos, Dafydd y Garreg Wen and the rousing finale of Sospan Fach.
The happy couple then left the church to the choir’s popular rendition of ‘The Rose’. Baritone Peter Davies always delivering the solo with assurance.
The happiness also overflowed outside the church. Endless photographs taken of the smiling bride and groom.
Finally, the choir, grateful for the invitation, wish you both every happiness for the future.
