It’s not often that a sitting councillor gets married – maybe once a decade at Rochford District Council. So when it happens , it normally gets minuted.

So 20 years ago today,  council minute 103/94 stated that  “The Chairman [Terry Fawell] referred to the forthcoming wedding of Councillor C.I. Black and presented to him on behalf of those present a card and a framed picture of Rayleigh with their best wishes for the future”

Well those best wishes for the future seemed to have helped us , and we are still grateful for them. 20 years on Elena and myself are still together, not bad considering we got wed 10 weeks after our first date…




  1. Many congratulations on your Wedding Anniversary Chris. As someone who also married within a few weeks of the first date (35 years ago) I heartily recommend whirlwind romances. Here’s to the next 20 years for you and Elena and may they be as happy as the first 20.
