Big day makes history

Have your say

blushing bride Hayley Lawson has always dreamed of having a big white wedding, but the newlywed from Leeds never expected to go down in the history books.

She has become the first bride to walk down the aisle at the newly-named Leeds Minster.

The 25-year-old and her new husband Oliver Dean, 23, were surprised to find that their choice of church was set to become a Minster. They made their mark in the historic church’s record books yesterday.

The sales consultant, who lives in Morley with her new husband, said: “I’ve always wanted a white wedding as long as it was a church. This is just beyond our expectations.”
