Welwyn Garden City’s very own Royal Wedding couple

AS the dust settles from April 29, the day of the biggest wedding for 30 years, a devoted couple have told the Welwyn Hatfield Times about the happiest day of their lives and their amazing honeymoon.

Yes Rob and Joanne Gunther, nee Adams, from WGC (you didn’t think we had an exclusive on Will and Kate did you?) were blown away by their special day at Hertford Castle, which was followed by a reception at the Collingwood Suite at Gosling Sports Park.

Originally from Potters Bar, Rob, speaking to the WHT this week after returning from their honeymoon in Bali, said they were so busy on the day, they didn’t really pay any attention to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tying the knot at Westminster Abbey.

“It was a wonderful day, everything went to plan,” he said.

“I was only really nervous when I was waiting for Jo to come up the aisle, but I think that was more nerves about whether the day would go well after we had spent so long planning it,” added Rob, of Bushey Green.

“To be honest I didn’t watch any of the Royal Wedding, I think Jo might have when she was getting ready but that was about it.

“However, when we were away in Bali everyone kept saying ‘Wills and Kate’ when they found out that we were English and had just celebrated our wedding.”
