Quirky Bath: You may now kiss Mrs White-Christmas – how romance, a civic ceremony and an accident of surnames produced a special moment in Aquae Sulis

The happy couple get hitched in Bath

It may be November but there’s a white Christmas in Bath

Bath experienced a white Christmas in November when Mr White married Miss Christmas at the Roman Baths. The Dorset couple had planned to tie the knot in July but were forced to postpone the wedding due to the Covid-19 restrictions.

The couple met while at school and because of their surnames they felt it was too good an opportunity to miss and so combined the names becoming Mr and Mrs White-Christmas.

The BBC reported that business student Mrs White-Christmas said:

Mrs White-Christmas, 20, said: “I wanted to keep the name going. It just so happens the man I am marrying has the perfect surname to go with it.”

Their original plans to get married in July at another venue were postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Business student Mrs White-Christmas said: “It took us time to twig that our surnames came together as White-Christmas.

“We first realised at our secondary school prom when our friend uploaded pictures to social media using #WhiteChristmas.”

The wedding service for the couple, from Bridport, was performed beside the Great Bath, with a reception for 15 guests.

Under England’s new four-week lockdown, weddings are not allowed to take place apart from in exceptional circumstances.

Bath has been placed in Tier 2 under the latest Covid-19 Government restrictions.
