Town hall to be new wedding venue
Couples looking to tie the knot in Sheffield will no longer be able to exchange vows at one of the city's most famous buildings.

Sheffield's register office opened in 1973, and an estimated 30,000 couples have said 'I do' in the building.

The office, which was designed to look like a wedding cake, hosted its last ceremony on Saturday.

It is now due to be demolished and couples will have the opportunity to marry at the Town Hall instead.
