December 9th marks the anniversary of actress Lucy Davis, a star of the original British version of The Office, and her husband, actor Owain Yeoman, who can currently be seen on the small screen as Wayne Rigsby on the CBS series The Mentalist. Here’s a look back at the day in 2006 when they said “I do”:
Although ordinarily reserved for royal events, St. Paul’s Cathedral in London– which once echoed with the wedding vows of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer– welcomed a crown princess of comedy when actress Lucy Davis walked down the aisle, escorted by her father, comedic actor Jasper Carrott.
Among the guests who stood in honor of the bride as she made her way toward the altar were her Office mates Martin Freeman, Mackenzie Crook, Joel Beckett, and actress Jenna Fischer, who took on the mantle Pam Beesly in the American version of The Office— a character inspired by Davis’s portrayal of receptionist Dawn in the classic Britcom.
The ceremony was the fruition of a romance which had led to a June 2006 engagement.
