Couple on to a winner with rugby-themed wedding

Paul and Amy Pickering kicked off married life in style with a rugby-themed wedding complete with a Leicester Tigers ball for a guest book.

The happy couple picked rugby grounds for their table names, including Welford Road and Twickenham for the top table, and had a cake topper that showed a bride tackling her groom.
They even provided Everards Tiger, the Official Beer of the Leicester Tigers, for their guests to enjoy while best man Darren Yates organised a rugby tour for the stag party.
“I have been a rugby player all my life and I’m a lifelong Tigers fan,” said Paul, from Horncastle in Lincolnshire. "Amy liked rugby when we met but afterwards it just spiralled and she is a massive fan.
“We wanted our wedding day to be about us, which is why we went for the rugby theme.
“Everyone loved it. We had a Northampton fan among our guests, who we put on the Welford Road table, much to his dismay!
“He said he didn’t mind because he has had many a good time when he’s visited Welford Road, which speaks volumes for the sport.”
Welford Road is licensed to host civil weddings and partnerships. It is also a popular venue for wedding celebrations and Tigers regularly welcome hen and stag parties to matchdays at Welford Road.
