They chose to marry there because it was the only place the bride, who was ill when they first met, could venture out on first dates.

Former undertaker and mother-of-four, Miss Wooller said: "I'm feeling nervous but very excited."

Part of the supermarket cafe will be sectioned off for the event and Morrisons has provided flowers and food.

As well as the usual family and friends, shoppers will be invited to get involved by lining the aisles to greet the couple.
