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.

A six-week consultation has been launched over plans for an extra 2,350 homes at Cambourne in Cambridgeshire.

The proposals, put forward by McA Developments, also include two primary schools and a secondary school, sports pitches and play areas, shops and a community space, offices and other "light industrial employment areas".

The site falls mainly within the parish of Caxton and would see the new town extended from the tree belt to the west of Lower Cambourne to the A1198, and from the A428 in the north to the Caxton Bypass in the south.

The consultation runs until Friday February 20 and public events are due to be held at Caxton Village Hall and The Hub in Cambourne at the end of January.
