A Watlington couple spent a “crazy” 24 hours rearranging their planned wedding to beat the second national lockdown.

Jordan and Laura Leadbitter were set to marry at King’s Lynn Town Hall today but their hopes were dashed after Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced last Saturday new measures would come into force that day.

“We thought, what does that mean for us? We had to go back to the registrar and town hall on Monday,” said Mrs Leadbitter, a pharmacy technician.

“They said we might be able to get married a day earlier on the fourth. It was 24 hours before the wedding it was confirmed we could do it. It then went absolutely crazy.”

Mr Leadbitter said: “It was magical, the Stone Hall was beautiful, with so much history there, it was amazing. The sun shone through the window.”
