Adam Hornby and Joanne Davies decided they couldn’t deny their wedding guests the opportunity to witness England reach the semi-finals of the World Cup for the first time since 1990 – even on their wedding day.

Football fever secured a place at their wedding reception as the couple put a screen up displaying the England v Sweden match on Saturday. The happy couple tied the knot in Pickering and held their reception in High Hawsker, just outside of Whitby.

Adam said: “As soon as we got permission from the Mrs we went for it.

“She said she would rather have everyone watching together than with their heads in their phones.”
