Un­usual wed­ding is an ar­rest­ing one

A COU­PLE from Ash­ford took some­thing old to visit some­thing new and were put in hand­cuffs by the boys in blue on their wed­ding day. Caro­line and Ja­son Rush were mar­ried at Kens­ing­ton and Chelsea Reg­is­ter Of­fice on April 23 and took an old 1958 Routemas­ter bus to the newly re­fur­bished St Pan­cras sta­tion for a cham­pagne re­cep­tion. Par­ty­ing with friends and fam­ily, the cou­ple soon fell in with the po­lice, who were only too happy to pose for their wed­ding snaps – go­ing as far as hand­cuff­ing them both to­gether. Rail Europe worker Caro­line, 37, said: “I thought it was awe­some. St Pan­cras has been ren­o­vated and the ar­chi­tec­ture there is amaz­ing. Ev­ery­one re­ally en­joyed the cham­pagne re­cep­tion. “I guess the pic­tures aren’t quite the con­ven­tional wed­ding pic­tures – I haven’t ac­tu­ally seen them all yet, but we had a great time.” Com­puter pro­gram­mer Ja­son, 34, and Caro­line met in 2004 on a night out and “just clicked”. The cou­ple took the Eurostar to Paris be­fore go­ing on to Venice for their hon­ey­moon. The cou­ple’s pho­tog­ra­pher, Sin­gle­ton-based Rose Clap­ton, said: “It was a dream to use a venue like St Pan­cras as the light is abun­dant and soft, and al­though it’s busy, it was a good at­mos­phere. The po­lice hap­pened to be milling around at the bot­tom of the es­ca­la­tor and I took a bit of a gam­ble by ask­ing if they would pose. “They went one bet­ter and hand­cuffed the bride and groom to­gether, to the amaze­ment of other pas­sen­gers at the sta­tion. They were fan­tas­tic sports, as were the bride and groom.”
