A Right Royal tea party 30.03.12
Sutton's registry office is planning a special jubilee treat for couples who got married in the borough in 1952 - the year of the Queen's coronation.
The council is inviting couples who are celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary this year to a celebratory champagne tea.
Russettings, which now houses Sutton's Register Office, will host the tea party on Sunday 27 May from 3-5 p.m. Couples entering their seventh decade of marriage are invited to celebrate with others over scones, sandwiches and a glass of champagne.
Couples have until Monday 30 April to come forward and register for their invite.
Cllr Graham Tope, Executive Member for Community Safety, Leisure & Libraries on Sutton Council, said: "With the Queen's jubilee and the Olympic Games, Summer 2012 is a once in a lifetime chance for the community to come together. We're planning lots of fun events to help people celebrate with their friends and neighbours, and the champagne tea will be a lovely afternoon for couples about to reach their diamond jubilee."
The London Borough of Sutton was formed in 1965, so any records held from 1952 will be for church weddings held in the Borough. However if you lived in the Borough but were married in a register office outside the borough, the service would be delighted to welcome you too. You will be required to provide the details of your wedding ceremony when booking.
