Couple marry at supermarket

A couple have married in a grocery store.

The newlyweds Charles Larry and Mary Tinson walked down the aisle of Harvey's supermarket in Albany, Georgia, on Thursday (24.11.16) to exchange their marital vows.

Although the choice of location may be strange to some, it made sense to the couple because it was the site where they first met.

The pair had originally known each other from earlier years, however they hadn't seen each other for around 20 years, until meeting again in the supermarket four years ago.

According to WALB-TV, Mary said: ''I heard someone say 'Hey girl,' and I turned around and said 'Oh, my God, Larry?''

''You can often tell when a man has a crush on you.''

The couple carried cans of cranberry sauce as they walked down the aisle, which Charles purchased in the store when the pair reunited.

The wedding had 70 witnesses and the supermarket staff helped with live music and a cake topped with cranberries.

Speaking about the ceremony, Ken Wicker, Harvey's Vice President of Operations said: ''We are extremely excited to be part of this special day.

''To our knowledge this is the first time we've ever had a real wedding in one of our supermarkets.''
