Longtime Ashcroft visitor weds in Village

Christina Seher was married at St. Alban’s before she and her husband returned to France

On July 14, 2018, Christina Belinda Seher was married to Jean-Gerard Borel at St. Alban’s Anglican Church in Ashcroft.

Christina is the daughter of Roger and Sandra Seher of Savona, and the granddaughter of Fred and Virginia Seher, who were longtime Ashcroft residents before a recent move took them to Kamloops.

Although Christina grew up in Brentwood Bay, where she was very active in 4-H and sports, she spends a good deal of her vacation time in Ashcroft, which is why she and Jean-Gerard decided to get married here.

Christina moved to France in 2013 to complete her university degree and get her Master’s, and now teaches English there. For the last three summers she has also operated a horse-and-carriage business, transporting visitors around the historic city of Avignon in southeastern France.

She met Jean-Gerard, who works as a bylaw officer for the city of Avignon, in 2009 when he was a gendarme (in France the gendarmerie is a military component with jurisdiction in civil law enforcement).

After the service, approximately 300 family and friends gathered at Roger and Sandra’s home in Savona for an afternoon of swimming, kayaking, and canoeing followed by a barbecue dinner.

Guests came from all over B.C., Montreal, Idaho, and California. After dinner and visiting there was dancing under the lights in a large tent. Tents, campers, and motorhomes were pressed into service for accommodations, and some guests stayed in local venues.

The married couple returned to their home just outside Avignon after visiting and touring around B.C. with Jean-Gerard’s two daughters, Elisa and Tess.
