Couple return to wedding venue for 60th anniversary
A COUPLE celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary at the village hall where they were married.
Jules and Thelma Tignet met at Reading University, where they were both lab assistants, in 1950 and married four years later in Nettlebed.
To mark their anniversary, the couple’s three daughters organised a party at the village hall for more than 80 friends and family.
There was replica of the couple’s original wedding cake and Mr Tignet showed a film called “60 Glorious Years” celebrating their time together.
The party also marked his 90th birthday the following day. Mrs Tignet, 79, said: “Our actual anniversary isn’t until later in the year but we decided to hold it today because of Jules’ birthday and it was easier to get everyone together.
