Associate Professor has the First Intimate Wedding at the Devonshire Dome  

The team at the Devonshire Dome were delighted to host their first Covid-19 regulation wedding earlier this month as they celebrated alongside the new Mr and Mrs.


Franc Jegede, Associate Professor at the University of Derby, married Sylwia Plutowska in front of their 30 guests under the spectacular Dome on Saturday 19th September. 


The bride and groom, along with their close friends and family, celebrated together with all Covid regulations in place to ensure the safety and enjoyment of all.


Christine Sweetmore, Business Development Manager, said: “I found it really emotional as I got to know the couple really well and felt for them not having the wedding they had planned – but it was still so beautiful to see them smiling and saying their vows.


“It was certainly strange, and we were all quite nervous of the new restrictions, however the measures were all in place to ensure that it was a safe and celebratory event. The Government registrar said the Dome had met the requirements in the best way locally she had experienced.”


Franc described the day as “glorious and most enjoyable” and thanked the Devonshire Dome staff for organising “such a beautiful day for us”.
