NUPTIALS OF NOTE

Julie Martin and Charley Matheson tied the knot recently after a long courtship. The bride’s mother, Diane Martin, and her sisters Mia Glickman and Suzanne Cooke, were in attendance as well as the bridegroom’s brothers and sister, friends, and other family members at an elegant reception at the couple’s home, “RoseBank.” The newlyweds, who share a love of horses, have been documenting their fox hunting forays, with Julie carrying a video camera on horseback –quite a feat while galloping over hill and dale.

Richmond native Janie Covington and Andrew Motion, a local gentleman/ estate agent with Sheridan-MacMahon Ltd., have announced their engagement and will soon join the Mathesons as prominent Hunt Country newlyweds.
