The Council Chamber in Chancery Lane has had its share of drama over the years, but it hasn’t been known for romance.

That is, until Wendy Hewstone, representing the Legal Aid Practioners Group, met Denis Cameron, representing Central Lancashire and Northern Greater Manchester, when they were placed next to each other in the back row of a Council meeting.

Love blossomed, and the pair were married last week near their home in the New Forest.

Hewstone, managing partner at Southampton firm Access Law, and sole practitioner, lecturer and expert witness Cameron even had a wedding cake representing the Council bench. Very best wishes from Obiter and all at the Gazette.
