A couple have tied the knot in the supermarket where they shared their first date.

Bride Rebecca Wooller, 44, married Blake Green, 53, after walking down the Easter egg aisle at Morrisons in Cambourne, Cambridgeshire.

The happy couple, who share an unusual take on romance, dined on chicken curry and chips in the store's cafe during their first night out together.

Their reception guests were treated to the same meal at the same venue.

Ms Wooller met Mr Green via their landlady in September and their first date in the store evolved into a plan to wed at the supermarket.

The couple admitted to being "mad as a box of frogs" for choosing to marry in a supermarket but said it held "sentimental memories".

Before the wedding, Ms Wooller said: "I'm going to be walking down the middle of the store, which is the Easter egg aisle at the moment, to 'Love is an Open Door' from the film Frozen.

"We want other people to have a good day themselves if they're in there shopping and have a laugh with us."

"Morrisons have basically done all the planning for us and we've just invited anyone who wants to, to turn up," Mr Green added.

"This is not that far out of the norm for the rest of the stuff we get up to. We make our own fun."

The reception took place in the restaurant and included 30 portions of chicken curry.

Store manager, Gemma Avery, said: "Everyone is absolutely thrilled for Becca and Blake."

The couple were officially married at a register office before a celebrant presided over their supermarket wedding.
