‘He’s totally stolen my thunder!’ : The couples getting hitched on the Coronation

As Manchester celebrates the crowning of King Charles III, some Mancunians are joyous for a very different occasion.

Chris and Leah got wed in Manchester city centre, accompanied by family, friends and their dog Pip.

Speaking to Mancunian Matters, Chris said: “We are really blessed to have this day as our own and we’re blessed it’s the Coronation day too.

“We are very lucky.”

Another bride, Natalie from Bolton, was also tying the knot on this historic day.

Chatting to Mancunian Matters outside the registrar office, Natalie said: “We planned our wedding last year, and found out that our wedding was going to be on the same day as the Coronation.

She then joked: “Which, I was furious about! Obviously, because he’s totally stolen my thunder.

“But we’re really excited and happy to be here!”


This bride didn’t realise the #coronation would be stealing her thunder! #royalfamily #coronation
