Vicar leads wedding service disco

By Huffington Post | June 24th 2013

Not content with your traditional day of love and vows, this just-married couple recruited their vicar to lead a disco-dancing flashmob.

Gary and Tracy Richardson, Vicar Kate Bottley and 28 family and friends were in on the performance but within seconds of starting the entire congregation were on their feet.

The wedding took place at St Mary's and St Martin's Church in Blyth on June 15th after eight weeks of dance rehearsals.

Underneath the video on YouTube they wrote:

Whilst planning our wedding we knew we wanted something a bit different. Upholding tradition but with a modern twist. So when our incredibly accommodating and inspiring Vicar, Reverend Kate Bottley of St Mary and St Martin's, Blyth, suggested a 'flash mob', we were sold!

Armed with our choreographer - Dawn Cherry and Musical Director - Nigel Solway (both of whom are part of 'Blucrew', a fundraising group for Bluebell Wood Children's Hospice, Nr Sheffield) and along with 28 of our family and friends, we set about rehearsals to create something unique and that would bring our service to life.

So for those of you who took part, thank you for your time and commitment, you made our wish come true and have created a lasting memory. For those of you who were there, thank you again for being with us and joining in and to everyone else, remember - you will always achieve your dreams with the love and support of those around you, a fantastic vicar, church and congregation and a bit of faith!
