A happy couple travelled from the church to their wedding reception on the number 99 bus.
Keira Henley and Matt Salt were married on Saturday at Beulah Baptist Church in Bexhill before heading off to their reception at Langney Sports Club in Eastbourne. Instead of taking a horse-drawn stagecoach they opted for the double deck variety.
“We just wanted to do things our way” said Keira. “Matt and I thought why not take the bus and travel as ordinary passengers.”
The couple, who live in West Parade, Bexhill, have been together for twelve years and have a four year old son, Dexter.
The newlyweds often take the 99 bus with Dexter who’s a big fan of the route. They sometimes catch the bus to the Blue Reef Aquarium in Hastings – one of Dexter’s favourite places to visit.
The mother of the bride, Rosemary Henley, who initially contacted Stagecoach said “The whole wedding was a bit unusual. Keira and Matt wanted to do things differently, not as convention dictates.”
Local Stagecoach operations manager, Richard Tandy made the bus fit for the occasion decorating it with white ribbon and posh bows.
