A divorced couple have married each other for a second time – on what would have been their silver wedding anniversary.
Childhood sweethearts Davide, 44, and Jen Brimacombe, 43, met as teenagers and quickly fell in love before tying the knot in 1992.
They had three children together but their marriage fell apart after just five years as it was “too much, too young.”
They both remarried and lived separate lives but were reunited in 2009 when they met at their daughter’s parents’ evening at school.
By then they were both single again and when sparks flew they decided to rekindle their relationship.
Five years later – on Christmas Day – Davide popped the question and for the second time Jen said yes.
And on June 24 this year they became husband and wife again – exactly 25 years since they first wed at the same registry office in Plymouth, Devon.
Six weeks later they staged a big church blessing with all of their friends and family.
Jen, a Tesco worker, from Plymouth, said: “There was only six weeks between the dates, but it was really important for us to keep the original date and celebrate properly later.
“It was an amazing wedding, but the registrar told us: ‘I hope I never see you here again.'”
The couple have three children from their first marriage: Matthew, Luke and Coral.
Last year salesman Davide also officially adopted Jen’s youngest daughter, Ellie, from her second marriage.
Jen, who first met Davide when she was 15 and he was 16, said she was thrilled they were once again husband and wife.
She added: “He got down on one knee. It was very sweet. I was over the moon.
“I said yes, without a doubt.”
Although the couple have had their ‘mini-moon’ in Gloucester, where Jen’s family is from, they are now saving up for a proper honeymoon next year.
Jen added: “Davide is my best friend, and he always has been.
“When we got back together, we both said there were so many times over the years we wanted to both pick up the phone and talk to each other.
“We have both changed quite a bit, and when we first met again it was funny because he was all grown up.”
