"Love Shone Down" for Mr. and Mrs. Scott

While most of us were relaxing following our Christmas Day celebrations, Miss Joe Parker, a Teaching Assistant at S. Georges School, Derby, and a Parish First Holy Communion Catechist was preparing to marry her childhood sweetheart, Mr. Richard Scott.

After a long courtship of some seventeen years, followed by a very short engagement of just eight months, they married on December the 27th, 2018, at Joe’s parish church of S. Georges and All Soldier Saints, Derby. It was a wonderful celebration with lots of family, friends and many of her fellow teachers and staff from her school attending. The music was wonderful and included the beautiful carol When love shone down, a favourite of the bride. Mrs. Helen Holmes and Mrs. Jenny Lewis, both fellow teachers, led the music and Mass was offered by Canon Alan Burbidge and Fr. Peter Peterken. We wish Joe and Richard a blessed and wonderful married life, from all at both your Parish and School communities.
