Moffat and Hasler

SARAH MOFFAT arrived at Henley town hall for her wedding on a horse.

SARAH MOFFAT arrived at Henley town hall for her wedding on a horse.

The bride, who has been riding horses since she was 10, rode up Hart Street and into Market Place on Foxy.

She then married Ian Hasler at a civil ceremony, which was conducted by two registrars.

Sarah is the daughter of Steve Moffat, who lives near Birmingham, and the groom is the son of Janet Hasler, from Chelmsford.

The bride wore a fishtail-style satin dress with diamanté crystals.

Her bridesmaids were Georgina and Charlotte Hasler and Jemma Thompson, who wore burgundy dresses and carried pale pink roses. Luke Thompson was the page boy.

Godmother Marian Dunster said: “Sarah is a vet and has owned horses since she was 10.

“She had a very serious hip operation in November because she was having pain but was determined to ride her horse side-saddle to her wedding.”

“Sarah met Ian while on a skiing holiday in France and she taught him to ride a horse.”

The bride left the ceremony on Foxy accompanied by her husband on his horse Peggy.

More than 70 family members and friends attended the reception at Kidmore End Cricket Club.

The couple, who will live in Churchill Crescent, Sonning Common, will spend their honeymoon in November riding in the Kruger, South Africa.
