Jo and Colin, who own and run The Mile Farm Shop and Smile Cafe, finally got hitched this June – for the third time of asking!
As reported in the Pocklington Post, the couple were forced to cancel their wedding twice last year after Jo’s mother sadly died.
Then less than a month before their rearranged wedding in August 2015, Jo had a serious horse riding accident that left her in a wheelchair for two months and on crutches for a further eight weeks.
But it’s happy ever after, after Jo and Colin got married in Burnby Hall on Saturday 4 June before enjoying a marquee reception at their Farm Shop camping site.
Jo says: “When I could leave the hospital, a week after the accident, we considered if the wedding could go ahead but I couldn’t stand up at all and I didn’t want to get married in the wheelchair. We had no wedding insurance and we dreaded the thought of calling suppliers to cancel.”
“But to our surprise, all the suppliers we had booked for our wedding were very understanding and agreed to wait until we could rearrange the wedding and didn’t ask for any cancellation payments. Thanks to their amazing generosity and kindness we can finally get married this June.”
“We’re so thankful to our suppliers, including Tastes Divine Catering from Holme-on-Spalding Moor, Premier Event Marquees in Goole, Wold Top Brewery in Driffield, DJ Darren Coates from Malton, Burnby Hall, East Riding Council and Pocklington photographer Elaine Gladstone.”
