Just Married: Kent Jackson weds Sharon Perks

Kent Jackson, son of Jerry and Wanda Jackson, exchanged wedding vows with Sharon Perks of London on Aug 14, at Charingworth Manor, Chipping Campden, Gloucestershire, England.

The ceremony was held in the 14th century manor house, overlooking the surrounding countryside of the scenic Cotswold district. The bride wore a full-length ivory silk dress and the groom was dressed in a morning suit.

Maid of honor was Lucy Ingamells of Southampton, and flower girl Maya Carney of London. Best man was Kent's brother-in-law, Charles Nicholls of Forestville, Calif. with Cole and Chase Nicholls, his nephews, as page boys. Oliver Heim and Edward Guerra, both of London, were groomsmen.

Kent graduated from Ilwaco High School in 1986 and received his Bachelor of Architecture at the University of Oregon in 1993. He has been an associate, leading the architectural design department at Skidmore, Owings & Merrill's London office since 1999.

Sharon is the daughter of Michael and Margaret Perks of Warwick, England. She is originally from Stratford-upon-Avon and currently works for management consultants, Mercer Delta.

The wedding ceremony was followed by a champagne reception in the formal gardens accompanied by a string quartet. Dinner was served in an outdoor marquee with jazz accompaniment. A spectacular fireworks show concluded the evening.

The couple honeymooned in Italy and now live in Wimbledon, England where they are renovating their Victorian cottage.
