Royal wedding date shared by Yeovil couple
Kate Middleton and Prince William
Jack and Katie will be sharing their wedding date with Kate and William

A Yeovil couple are set to get married on the same day as Prince William and Kate Middleton.

Katie Sage and Jack Weir chose 29 April 2011 as their special day back in February 2010 having got engaged a few months earlier in November.

She said: "It was quite exciting really as we were ready to post our wedding invites that weekend."

Katie and Jack's wedding service will take place at 3pm, a few hours later than the royal wedding around 11am.

With the inevitable level of interest in the royal wedding, Katie said guests could watch the ceremony if they wanted.

"Obviously they will have the chance to watch it if that's what they choose."

Like all brides-to-be, Katie has kept all details of her dress under wraps and refused to divulge any details.

However unlike other couples preparing to get married, Katie said her wedding plans wouldn't be influenced by the royal occasion.

"We had ours booked and planned really so we can't really go back on them now so we are going to be doing our own thing."
