CONFETTI was flying at Kennaway House last weekend as the magnificent building played host to its first ever wedding.

Paul and Tracy Churchill exchanged their vows in front of 50 close family and friends during the intimate ceremony inside the newly-restored Grade II building on Saturday.

Paul and Tracy's wedding celebration continued in the grounds of the house with a pimms reception on the newly laid lawn.

This was followed by a cream tea with a vintage feel to it as Tracy had collected rustic china to use during the celebration.

The evening do was also held in a function room at Kennaway House with 50 additional guests attending.

Paul and Tracy, of Woolbrook, are now honeymooning in the Scilly Isles.

Once home to Sidmouth's first MP for East Devon, Sir John Kennaway, the house fell into disrepair but in 2001 efforts to raise funds for its restoration were launched.
