Two sixth-form pupils, John Adams, 17, and Su­san Pen­nor, 16, who eloped from their homes in Cheshire three weeks ago, were mar­ried at Dum­fries Regis­trar’s Of­fice. Wit­nesses to the wed­ding were the cou­ple’s par­ents. The bride and groom had been court­ing for more than a year. “We had de­cided a week ear­lier to get mar­ried,” said John, “but we did not think our par­ents would agree.” Su­san said: “I went home early from school, feign­ing ill­ness, met John, then we were off.”
