Jean and Gerald’s Day


Jean and Gerald’s family wanted to celebrate their 50th Wedding Anniversary with a special day.

However they wanted it to be a surprise and therefore wanted to keep their input to a minimum.

Leave It To Me stepped in.


Judith began by gathering information from the family.

Jean and Gerald had got married at a Church in Braintree.  Judith contacted the present Vicar and asked whether he would be willing to do a surprise “Renewing of the Vows”.   He happily agreed.

Judith organised and sent out invitations for a small number of family and friends to be at the Church on Jean and Gerald’s arrival with details of the day.

Flowers were chosen and ordered, some to decorate the church and a posy for Jean to hold and a button hole for Gerald.

Jean and Gerald were told by their Son and Daughter that they were being taken for a posh meal for the Anniversary and to dress accordingly.

On the day the children collected Jean and Gerald and took them to the Church.  Imagine their joy and surprise to be greeted at the Church by all their family and friends.

After the Church blessing the party headed off to a local Pub where Judith had booked a private room.

A meal had been arranged and of course a cake.

The day passed without a hitch and Jean and Gerald could not have been happier.
