Bride got married on her lunch break at the UK’s first ever drive-through wedding then went back to work

A couple whose wedding plans were thwarted by Covid-19 said ‘I do’ in their lunch break at the UK’s first ever drive through wedding.

Lucie Hacq and Charles Langevin met on a skiing trip in France in February 2014 and planned to tie the knot at a stunning red brick castle near his family home in Normandy, France on September 12.
