Pauline and Graham Perkins, from Bromyard, celebrated their wedding with a reception for 80 guests at The Foley Arms Hotel – 44 years ago.
Married at Suckley village church, in February 1967, they both knew Malvern well and were keen to hold their wedding party at the hotel in the town.
Pauline said: “I remember the décor at the hotel very well. It was very smart, quite the place; however, we haven’t been back for many, many years.
“When we heard that it had become a Wetherspoon pub, we wanted to see it again. Graham and I are both keen Wetherspoon customers, often enjoying a bite to eat and a drink after walking in the hills."
Wetherspoon spent £2.2 million transforming The Foley Arms Hotel into a new pub and hotel with 23 en suite bedrooms. It retained the name and many of the original hotel features, including three working fireplaces and the crest above the entrance. The 1810 building, a fine example of a Georgian coaching inn, has been a feature of the Victorian spa town for 200 years.
