CHEERS from crowds of children and their parents greeted newlyweds Matthew White and Natalie Heron, as they returned to the Collis School in Teddington for their wedding reception.

Matthew, of Ashleigh Road, Exmouth, son of Jan and Martin, and Natalie, of London, were married on Saturday, March 28, at Hounslow Evangelical Church, in London.

The school, where they both work, had been transformed into an indoor marquee, complete with photo gallery and water features.

The bride wore an ivory dress, embroidered with seed pearls, and was attended by five bridesmaids, including the groom's niece 10-year-old Chris Fage, who had travelled from Uganda.

The bride was given away by her father, the Reverend Andrew Heron - who then officiated at her wedding ceremony.

After a 'Thai feast' at the reception for 160 people Mr and Mrs White left for the honeymoon in The Maldives, before returning to their new home at Hampton, in London.
