Southwark registrar June Lewis finished her career on a high on Sunday when she conducted the marriage of two runners during the London Marathon.
Runners Katie and Gordon Fryer with Southwark's superintendent registrar June Lewis.
So when Katie and Gordon Fryer decided to run the first 13 miles in full wedding attire, stop at Tower Bridge to say their vows, then dash off to complete the course, June was the perfect choice for registrar.
June said: “It was a great swansong for me. I have married a couple during the marathon before, but they weren't runners, just spectators. This one was wonderful. It was a very emotional day for everyone, and certainly one ceremony I'll never forget.”
