The annual event takes place around Valentine’s Day, and the church was filled with flowers and pink bows to mark the occasion.

The service was led by Revd. Ron Watkinson, and he encouraged couples to renew wedding vows, which in many cases were made years ago.

One of the couples taking part was Sonya and Alan Thornton, who have been married for seven years - and the event was special for them as Sonya’s wedding dress was on display in the church. Sue and Ron Bush were also at the service after 35 years of marriage, while Peter and Fran King marked 55 years since they tied the knot.
