Coronation Street has seen over 102 eventful weddings in our 53 years, but last night, Monday 8th September, saw the first legal marriage as the newlyweds said their I do’s inside the Rovers Return at Coronation Street The Tour.
Paul Johnston and Andy Daniel from Islington, London became the first couple to marry at the former Coronation Street set after the attraction was granted a wedding licence in June. The ceremony was held inside the Rovers Return with the happy couple exchanging vows behind the bar in front of their loved ones.
I’m really happy that we have been able to give our families and friends such a truly memorable experience. We’ve also made soap history by having a wedding without a punch up!
– Andy Daniel
Following the ceremony the wedding party shared a champagne toast inside the Rovers Return before taking advantage of the truly unique venue to get some memorable wedding photos. Paul and Andy then stepped through the doors of Nick’s Bistro to take their first steps as a married couple onto the cobbles of the nation’s Street.
