To mark the occasion of the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Be Richmond commissioned their own happy couple, in full wedding outfits, to visit Richmond town centre on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th May.
The couple, Libby and Carl, toured the town centre, visiting shops and businesses and greeting shoppers. They also handed out leaflets featuring the ‘Big Wedding Treasure Trail’, a family promotion giving children the chance to claim a free packet of sweets by identifying wedding images on display in the windows of Richmond retailers.
Be Richmond Chairman, Erick Kervaon said:
“We all love a Royal Wedding and this allowed Richmond to share a bit of the excitement in a family-friendly, light-hearted way. The Big Wedding Treasure Trail is also a good way to remind people of the great range of shops, cafés and restaurants available in Richmond and allow children to have a bit of fun at the same time.”
Shoppers and store staff throughout the town were very positive about the event with comments including:
‘What a great idea’ – Parent
‘What a brilliant way to explore Richmond’ – parent
‘You both look amazing’ – Team at Foot Solutions
‘We can’t wait to get started!’ – Parent of three children
‘That’s so fun, thank you so much!’ – Parent
