Civil marriage celebrant Fiona Solomon from Co Down has carried out what is believed to be the first wedding - or "commitment ceremony" - conducted by Zoom in Northern Ireland. However, while Fiona was at home in Ballygowan, the happy couple were in London with their 12 virtual guests.

The newlyweds had been forced to postpone their real-world wedding, but as they already had their rings engraved with Saturday's date they decided to mark the day with the virtual ceremony.

All of which goes to show that even in the time of coronavirus, true love really does conquer all, this time with the magic of technology.
