It is with thanks to T John Reynolds (Le. 1955-59) that we recently received a lovely picture of what could be the first wedding of an Old Brightonian to have taken place in the school chapel.

John's sister, Elizabeth, married Old Brightonian Guy Spooner (Ch. 1942-44) in the College chapel on the 5th of November 1955, with best man Eric Womersley (Ch. 1943-47) by his side at a ceremony carried out by Canon Bill Peters. The photograph shows Guy and Elizabeth, along with her bridesmaid Margaret Kirby, and Eric.

Guy sadly died in November 2019, and we are very grateful to John for sending us this lovely picture and the memories of that special day in 1955. 

If you have any memories or images that you would like to share with us, please do get in touch with the College and our Archivist, James Harrison.
