A Christmas Day proposal led this happy couple to the altar.

After 12 years together, Barry Ring asked Anneke Swift to marry him last year.

The couple were married at the Church of St Nicholas, at Boarhunt, and celebrated with a reception at Rookesbury Park School in nearby Wickham.

Anneke and Barry’s sons, Jimmy, four, and 18-month-old Lenny, were page boys.

The bridesmaids were Anneke’s sisters, Georgia and Sjoke, while Barry’s brother, Michael, was best man.

A horse-drawn carriage took Anneke to the church and the newlyweds then used it to travel to their reception in style.

They spent their honeymoon in Sorrento, Italy.
