They searched, they found love. ClickThrough Marketing employees Chris Knight, senior account director, and Jene Pedder, account director, have tied the knot following a three-year office romance.

We’re proud of our linkbuilding strategies here at ClickThrough. Now Chris and Jene have forged our strongest link yet with the first ever ClickThrough wedding!

The historic occasion was held in the beautiful St Nicholas Church in Codsall, Wolverhampton – close to where Jene grew up. Family and friends – along with several ClickThrough employees – crammed into the church to celebrate the big day.

Jene looked dazzling in her elegant dress, complete with jewelled tiara and furry shawl, whilst her Knight in shining armour left his sword and shield at home, opting instead for a handsome, understated suit.

After an emotional exchange of vows, the couple and their guests went to Somerford Hall in nearby Brewood for their reception.

The occasion was marked by a heartfelt speech from Jene’s dad, some hilarious stories from Chris’ best man, and the revelation – during a speech from Chris’ dad – that our senior account director used to be obsessed with fairies, and claims to have found one at the bottom of his garden as a child!

Our happy ClickThrough couple chose Oh Yeah by Roxy Music to accompany them as they treaded the boards for their first dance. Afterwards, Chris surprised Jene with his own inimitable rendition of Bill Withers’ Aint No Sunshine, accompanied by a band.

Afterwards, the guests hit the dancefloor to boogie to some cracking tunes, and didn’t stop until the early hours.

It was a beautiful day, and there were more than a few teary eyes amongst the ClickThrough staff as we celebrated this special union between two firm friends.

Jene and Chris met at our offices here in Lichfield. According to Jene, the pair “didn’t talk for two months,” until – in a scene that reads like a modern-day romance play – a mutual client brought them together on a sunny balcony in Lichfield.

Chris popped the question during a romantic weekend break in London, ostensibly to see his favourite band play a gig. However, he had other plans – laying on a romantic meal, a luxury hotel stay and a day of sightseeing around the capital.

We wish Jene and Chris the best of luck in their future together.
