The owners of a local engineering firm who waited 25 years before tying the knot were given a steamy send-off at the White Horse Lodge Hotel last weekend, with a little help from their friends.
Wendy and Cyril Bainbridge said it was apt being given a send-off by the 14mph top-speed “Yorkshire Belle” steam traction engine, having taken their own relationship slowly and steadily.
The couple, from Cold Kirby, whose business, Bainbridge Engineering, makes handling equipment for the farming community, said they were delighted when customers, Alan and Peter Turner from Thomanby, turned up with their recently restored 1916 traction engine.
Wendy and Cyril held their wedding reception at the White Horse Lodge Hotel on Sutton Road, Thirsk. The hotel is well placed to cater for local events and benefits from ample car parking and splendid views. The couple were married earlier in the day at Laskill Country House at Hawnby, near Helmsley.
