Caistor Parish Church was the setting for the marriage of Catherine Robinson and Simon Kelsey.

Performing the ceremony was the Rt Rev Christopher Lowson, Bishop of Lincoln, as Caistor vicar, the Rev Canon Ian Robinson, had another role on the day - giving the bride away.

The groom is the son of Beryl Kelsey of Hull and the bride, as previously mentioned, the daughter of the Rev Canon Ian and Christine Robinson.

Catherine wore a dress of ivory silk, with crystals and seed pearls, accompanied with a full train and short veil.

The bouquet was of cream roses.

Her attendants - Louise Turner, friend of the bride, Jade Davy and Molly Davy, friends - wore purple knee-length dresses, while the flower girls - Freya Dix and Beatrice Dix - wore calf-length ivory-coloured dresses.

Simon chose Andy Harland as his best man, with Richard Robinson, Graham Kelsey, Tim Kelsey and Andrew Kelsey acting as ushers.

A reception followed at Caistor Town Hall and the couple honeymooned in Bulgaria.

The couple met while Catherine was studying for the Halliwick Swimming Qualification to teach swimming to people with disabilities.

Catherine now works at Cambridge Park Academy in Grimsby and Simon is a landscape gardener.

They are currently renovating a house in Hull, which recently featured on the BBC television programme Restoration Home.
