Married life begins in tandem for Havering newly-weds
The wedding looks stylish, and who knows, he may have been able to afford a carriage, but what’s in no doubt is the pair look sweet upon the seats of a bicycle made for two!
Romford newly-weds David Brett and Louise Brennan, both 24, began their married life as they mean to go on – in tandem – earlier this month.
The cycling-mad couple stopped traffic as they made their way on the two-seater cycle from Romford Baptist Church, in Main Road, Romford, to the reception venue, in Willow Room, Willow Street, Romford.
The wedding party followed them on foot.
David’s mum, Jackie Brett, 48, said: “When I first saw the tandem bike I was shocked but it’s them all over - they like to be different.

They even had their bikes with them when David proposed to Louise, from Balgores Lane, Gidea Park, in a Chelmsford park.
Louise’s mum Bridget Brennan, 54, from Maldon, Essex, said: “They are an unusual couple and we knew there would be some unusual elements to the wedding.
“Louise is a sustainability officer in housing - she is into energy conservation so cycling to the reception made perfect sense!”
The Brentwood teacher added: “The guests were delighted and rushed out to cover them in confetti!”
David, originally from Tweed Avenue, in Rise Park, but now studying for a PhD in accelerated physics at Manchester University, is part of a cycling club in the city.
Jacqui, a higher learning teacher, said: “David has been cycling since he pupil at St Edward’s School and he now takes it very seriously. He’d think nothing of cycling 60-70 miles.”
She added: “I think David and Louise plan to go on a few cycling holidays in the future.”
The couple, who had a Mad Hatter-themed tea party in the church after the wedding, are currently enjoying their honeymoon in Tenerife.
