Valentine’s Day sees 800 couples marry each year
There may have been a large number of wedding insurance policies submitted for yesterday’s date (February 14th) after research showed around 800 Brits choose to marry on Valentine’s Day each year.
Figures from the General Register Office reveal that the romantic date is a popular choice among brides and grooms-to-be.
A number of celebrities have opted for Valentine ceremonies in the past including Oasis front man Liam Gallagher.
He secretly wed former All Saints singer Nicole Appleton three years ago at a London registry office.
Meanwhile, Elton John also tied the knot on February 14th, marrying Renate Blauel in 1984.
However, like fellow Valentine newlywed Kerry Katona, his romantic wedding failed to last and he separated from Ms Blauel four years later.
Katona exchanged vows with second husband Mark Croft before divorcing in 2009.
In Cleveland, a mass wedding was held yesterday for dozens of couples who wished to cement their relationship.
