The first couple to be married in the Benefactors Room at Norwich Castle

On Friday 1st April, Josephine Bigwood and Stephen Manson became the first couple to be married at Norwich Castle.

They were surrounded by 40 of their friends and family to celebrate their big day.

Saying their vows in one of the grandest buildings in the city, they said that the experience was “overwhelming”.

Mr Manson, 58, said: “You can’t get a bigger icon than Norwich Castle. Mrs Manson, 58, added: “Its a bit overwhelming, especially as we are having a low key wedding.”

The happy couple were then showered with confetti outside the Castle.

This is the first of many joyous moments to take place at the city’s new wedding venue, which has replaced Churchman House.
