Alliance's Sorcha will vote for her life-long coalition
The Alliance Party candidate Sorcha Eastwood received a shock when she was told that there would be a snap general election on the same day as her marriage to Dale Shirlow.
The couple have been planning their wedding since last August, but like true troupers, they will rise to the occasion on June 8. Sorcha has promised that there will be a short stop at a polling booth, which is only a two-minute trip from St Patrick's Church, Lisburn, where the couple will be married.
It's not difficult to guess how she will vote, and it is certain that whatever happens, her first preference will be her new husband Dale.
