Wedding bells in Asda's aisles
Love in the aisles: Asda-style
A bride and groom have completed their wedding ceremony by walking down the aisle of their local supermarket.
The couple held the ceremony at the supermarket in Sutton in Ashfield - because a proposal posted on the store's noticeboard led to their engagement.
Shoppers watched as they publicly acknowledged their commitment to each other beneath a makeshift iron gazebo in the childrenswear department.
Afterwards, the newly-weds admitted they had been a "bit nervous", but said their happy day had been "absolutely fantastic".
The store and local businesses provided a dress, suit, photographer, flowers, balloons, cars, a red carpet and a wedding cake for the event.
He said: "Everything has gone to plan. I am really happy for them.
"It was their day and the store got involved because we are part of the local community. They are a lovely couple and they wanted something special."
The blessing was followed by a buffet reception above the store for the couple and their guests.
