On 2nd March, Richard married his piano teacher Penny at Holy Trinity Church Hurstpierpoint. Afterwards, they hosted a champagne reception for 300 guests at Danny, followed by dinner, speeches and dancing. Penny performed one of her compositions with the Brighton Film Quartet during the service and sang ‘Nobody does it Better’ to lure Richard onto the dance floor. Richard delivered a poem recalling how much piano practice it had taken to woo Penny. The happy couple honeymooned in Sicily and are now nesting at Danny.
