The second biggest wedding of the year took place in glorious sunshine on Saturday when former Guardian reporter Karl Holbrook married his sweetheart Nikki Townsend.

The happy couple married at Stirk House Hotel, near Clitheroe, in front of family and friends.

Karl’s proud mum Janet Fishwick and grandmother Brenda Fishwick still live in Chorley.

The 30-year-old worked at the Guardian for four years before moving to our sister paper the Lancashire Evening Post in 2010.
