Havering couples tie the knot on the same day as Wills and Kate
�While the rest of the country will be glued firmly to their TV screens today for the biggest Royal �wedding in 30 years, three Havering couples will only have one big day on their minds – their own!
Jane Richards and David Brannan, from Essex, Sue Adams and James Phillips from Junction Road, Romford, and Pam Young and Chris Davies from �Lancaster Drive, Elm Park, will all be tying the knot on the same day as Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Jane said: “It’s nice that it’s on the same day because it makes it a bit more �special.”
Jane, 30, and David, 32 have been together for six years and will be getting married at St Michael’s Church in Main Road, Gidea Park, with a reception for 120 guests at Boreham House in Chelmsford.
Jane said: “I am interested to see Kate’s dress but even more interested to see what her bridesmaids are wearing.

Sue and James will be �tying the knot at St Edward’s Church in Market Place, Romford, with 50 guests.
The couple, who have been together for five years, booked the venue just five months ago, before any �mention of a Royal wedding.
Sue said: “Having it on the same day is a bonus, the bank holiday gives the weekend a nicer feel and means everyone will be buzzing for our big day.”
Pam, 46, and Chris, 53, will marry with Pam’s three daughters and Chris’ daughter as bridesmaid, his son as best man and his two grandsons as page boys at Ye Olde Plough House in Bulphan.
They were an item in the 1980s but went their separate ways before a chance meeting at a friend’s party in May and a whirlwind romance.
The pair who run a card and balloon shop in Station Parade, Elm Park have decorated their shop in flags.
Pam said: “A lot of people have heard that we are �sharing our wedding with the Royals and they are just �really happy for us.”
