To symbolise their lasting commitment, the happy couple’s wrists were bound together with a length of rope made of golden twine, and created especially in Bridport Museum by the groom’s mother Linda.
Linda, who has been a Museum volunteer for 4 years, regularly demonstrates rope-making on its Victorian rope-jack made by H.N. Harris of Bridport.
“I thought it would be a fabulous way of bringing even more depth and meaning to their vows”, said Linda, “It also reflected their love of the town’s traditions and history. We created a very fine and delicate twist which they will treasure as a family heirloom.”
Linda thoroughly recommends joining the Museum as a volunteer. “It’s a great way of meeting people”, she said, “and I really enjoy helping visitors appreciate Bridport’s heritage.”
Volunteers come from all walks of life, and plenty of training and support are on offer along with regular get-togethers. If you might be interested in joining the group, you can find out more here.
