They arranged weddings online, and relatives and friends were able to join them via video link.
Katherine Wood, 24, and Alex Moore, 26, managed to get married just five hours before quarantine was declared in the UK. The young people were supposed to take vows of allegiance at a picturesque farm in Bolton on Saturday, March 28, but a few weeks before the celebration, guests began to refuse the invitation due to fear of the coronavirus. The couple from Manchester decided not to delay until the appointed date, and on Monday asked the owners of the farm if they could get married right now.
The lovers played a mini-wedding, which was attended only by them and two witnesses. The newly-made husband and wife were not upset, on the contrary, they enjoyed the time that belonged only to them. The newlyweds walked down the aisle to the song from the cartoon "Toy Story" You've Got a Friend in Me against a beautiful landscape, and then drank champagne in the company of local lamas. Katherine and Alex are planning to celebrate the wedding properly on the first anniversary of their married life.
