SWANTON/OXFORD, England — Dr. Abigail Kate Boucher and Mr. Benjamin Thomas Corbey were married on June 1, 2015. Abigail is the daughter of Mr. James Boucher and Mrs. Sheila Burnor (both formerly of Swanton). Benjamin is the son of Dr. Martyn Corbey and Mrs. Kim Corbey of Oxford, England.

The bride’s two best friends, Dr. Justine Trombley (formerly of Swanton) and Megan Denardo, served as maid and matron of honor. Other bridesmaids included the groom’s sister, Tahnee de Tena, and the bride’s friend, Caroline Bright (formerly of Franklin). The groom’s best friend Dillon Vaughn, served as best man. Other groomsmen included the groom’s brother, Jeremy Corbey, the groom’s brother-in-law, Gabriel de Tena, and the groom’s friend, Naeem Datardina.

The intimate evening ceremony included only 30 guests and took place in Edinburgh, Scotland, in medieval vaults under the city. The wedding was a 1920s-themed event, with a live jazz band, art deco decorations, and old Hollywood glamour. The bridesmaids each wore an individually-designed black flapper dress, while the groom and groomsmen wore white tie and tails. For the ceremony, the bride wore a vintage 1929 white evening gown, but donned a 1926 reproduction beaded white flapper dress for the reception.

The couple went on a tour of Italy for their honeymoon.

They currently reside in Glasgow, Scotland, where Mr. Corbey is completing his PhD and where Dr. Boucher-Corbey currently teaches and researches for the University.
