Actress and author Judy Cornwell and her husband John Parry enjoyed a super celebration for their Golden Wedding at the Grand Hotel in Brighton.
Judy has appeared in many stage productions, films and TV shows. She is perhaps best known as Daisy in the BBC comedy Keeping up Appearances. John is a former BBC Arts Correspondent. The couple live in Brighton.
John said: We had a wonderful time. We chose it because it overlooks the Palace Pier where we met. I was training at the Argus and Judy was in a play at the pier theatre. I wrote a kind review of her and followed it up a couple of days later with a knock on her dressing room door and six months later we married.
Judy said: I proposed to John, I said it was a leap year and Im allowed to propose to a man. You're supposed to do it before 29 February but I conveniently forgot that part and said it lasted all year!
Among their guests were their son Edward, a Los Angeles film distributor; Jo Tewson and David Griffin, who appear in Keeping up Appearances and novelist James Herbert OBE.
