Family and friends blew bubbles into the air to create a special memory of the wedding of Bexhill couple Laura Button and Adam Cooke on Thursday April 2.

They gathered outside to do this during the celebrations immediately after the ceremony which took place at Bannantyne Spa Hotel in the afternoon followed by a reception which lasted through the evening.

Apart from the bubbles a much appreciated feature of the event was a spectacular array of pick-and-mix sweets piled on a table which delighted guests of all ages.

Bridegroom Adam was born and bred in Bexhill and is a former pupil of King Offa primary school and Bexhill High.

He is the son of Malcolm and the late Linda Cooke.

Adam studied at Sussex University. He is an engineer by trade and used to work for companies such as Rolls Royce.

He currently works as a DT and physics teacher at Tonbridge School in Kent.

Laura was born in Eastbourne and was a pupil of Ratton School. She started her career as a journalist at the Eastbourne Herald and then as district reporter for the Seaford Gazette, before reporting for the Battle Observer for nine years, where she recently won an award for a dedicated campaign to keep Battle fire station from being downgraded.

She started work on the Bexhill Observer in October. Laura is the daughter of Graham and Lesley Button.

The couple were thrilled to celebrate their big day with a beautiful cake made by the groom’s sister Mel King.

Duties as best man fell to Russ Clark, and Laura’s bridesmaids were Zoe Button and Alice King, with flower girl Ellen King.

The couple will make their home in Bexhill.
