Coronation Street

Corrie Weddings

As Nick and Carla's wedding approaches, take a look back at some of the weird, wild and wonderful weddings of Weatherfield.

The first Street wedding was that of Jack and Annie Walker’s daughter Joan to Gordon Davies on 8th March 1961.
The most recent - before this week - was Sally Webster and Tim Metcalfe’s nuptials on 5th October 2015.
On 4th August 1962, Ken Barlow, now the show’s longest-running original character, married for the first time, having sold his scooter to fund the wedding. Valerie Tatlock became bride number one when she walked up the aisle at St Mary’s. Ken married a further three times, to Janet Reid in 1972 and Deirdre Langton in 1981 and again in 2005.
Gail Rodwell and Steve McDonald are the most-married characters, each having walked down the aisle six times.
Six couples have married each other twice: Brian and Gail Tilsley (left), Jim and Liz McDonald, Kevin and Sally Webster, Steve and Karen McDonald, Ken and Deirdre Barlow, and Nick and Leanne Tilsley.
The most enduring marriage on the Street was that of Jack and Vera Duckworth, who celebrated their golden wedding anniversary weeks before Vera’s death in January 2008.
The shortest marriage was that of Steve McDonald and Tracy Barlow, whose union fell apart during their wedding reception in 2012.
Carla Connor has been married three times before, to Paul Connor, Tony Gordon and Peter Barlow...
...While Nick Tilsley has had two previous weddings, both to Leanne (nee Battersby), in 1998 and 2013.

There have been 110 weddings in Coronation Street’s 55-year history - although some have barely lasted past the vows!

Hopefully Nick and Carla will have more luck! Join the conversation with #CorrieSecrets
