THE owner of a set of lost wedding photos featured in the Guardian two weeks ago is set to be reunited with them thanks to the keen eye of a watchful reader.

An album – featuring 12 postcard-sized photographs – was found in North Wales by a friend of Emyr Davies. She found them in a jumble sale but through the Guardian, Emyr wanted to appeal for the owner to come forward so he could return them.

The wedding was between Christine Marriott and Peter Jones and took place at St Wilfrid’s on January 2, 1960.

Guardian reader Denis Cain popped into the office when the photographs were featured in the paper on Wednesday, March 5.

He said he knew the happy couple – and was even an usher on the big day.

Christine Jones, nee Marriott, then phoned the Guardian office to shed light on the why they were found in a jumble sale in Pwllheli.

“My mother lived in Wrexham and went back there after my father died,” said Christine, who now lives in Crewe.

“I thought that I had that wedding album that she had but it must be my daughters that I have still.”

Christine said she was grateful to Emyr and would be in touch to try and get the wedding album back in her possession.

“When my mum died we cleared the house out and I definitely wouldn’t have left it there as I’ve got all sorts belonging to her at home,” Christine added.

“We’d like to get it back but I’d like to thank Emyr and his friend for keeping it.”
