Couple Tie Knot To Become World's First Mr And Mrs White-Christmas
High school sweethearts Kieran White and Tilly Christmas, from Bridport, Dorset, tied the knot at the Roman Baths in Bath, Somerset, on Tuesday.
They met when they were just 12 but actually didn't realise the significance of their surname pairing for a while. Thankfully though they did eventually clock on and opted to join surnames in the appropriate way.
Bride Tilly - who celebrated her 21st on Bonfire Night - said: "We didn't actually twig what our last names would be when we got together until a friend shared a photo of us from prom with the hashtag #WhiteChristmas.
"I wanted to keep the surname Christmas for a few reasons - I've always loved having it as a last name throughout my life and I really love Christmas time as well.
"It just so happens that the man I've married has the perfect surname to go with it."
Supermarket assistant Kieran, 20, decided to propose to his now-wife in Glasgow in 2018 during a festive holiday, naturally.
Tilly recalled: "We were visiting the Doulton Fountain the day after Boxing Day and Kieran dropped to one knee behind me.

"He started to propose but I was so taken by the beauty of the fountain that I didn't even hear him and started to walk off.
"He called my name as I walked away so I turned around and was completely shocked to see him kneeling down with a ring."
They were originally supposed to get married in July, but that got cancelled because of you-know-what.
But now they are officially Mr and Mrs White-Christmas, following an intimate ceremony with just 13 guests.
Business student Tilly said: "I've grown up with the last name Christmas so I'm used to it but I think it'll take a while for Kieran to adjust.
"I've booked tables at restaurants during the Christmas period before and then found out the reservation wasn't made as they thought it was a joke.
"Our wedding was absolutely beautiful and felt like a real once-in-a-lifetime experience to get married at the Roman Baths."
That's the idea, Tilly.
Here's hoping they name their kid 'I'm Dreaming Of A'.
