The RAF Chivenor Sea King made a surprise fly by at one North Devon wedding - but its appearance meant more than the crew might realise.Chloe and Gareth Burton were shocked when the bright yellow helicopter emerged from over Braunton Burrows on the day of their wedding at Saunton Sands Hotel on May 30. Chloes mother Rosemary Brown said the crew flew very low and hung from the doors, waving to the delighted wedding party.Family connectionsBut the family also had a special link to Chivenor: it was the reason Rosemarys late parents - Chloes grandparents - first met back in 1940. Rosemary said: My father Ted Clacy was stationed at Chivenor, and my mother Hazel lived in Saunton. In 1940 she was running late for a date at Braunton Parish Hall, and as she rushed there, my father was stood outside The George pub. He asked her if she had been stood up, and when she told him she was late for a date, he said, I would wait forever for you.Croyde engagementThe couple got engaged at Croyde and were married in 1942, when they moved back to Edgware - but they always loved North Devon. Ted passed away in 1989 aged 69, and Hazel died in December last year aged 92.Final piece of storyRosemary, who lives in Hertfordshire, said as soon as she saw the Sea King, she knew it was the final piece in their love story. We always visit North Devon and see the Sea King a lot, but never that low, she added. It just meant so much that they appeared like that; it was very emotional for us all. I just want the crew to know how grateful we are and to say a huge thank you to them.Tell us your storyIn October, the Sea King will cease to operate from North Devon as search and rescue services move to a new base in St Athan, Wales, by Bristow Helicopters Ltd.
