South London couple, Paul Elliott and Laura Harvey exchange vows 13 miles into the 2015 London Marathon
The 2015 London Marathon, which this year saw over 38, 000 runners compete and 750, 0000 spectators colourfully adorn the streets (some with “helpful” advice placards), is an annual 26.2 mile (42.2km) run in name of charity. A vast array of competitors gather on the picturesque streets of London to help raise awareness and money for charities that mean something special to them.
And this year Formula 1 star Jensen Button, Model Christie Turlington Burns, Bank of England governor Mark Carney, joined a whole host of other celebrity guests and normies to try and break 2014’s record of £53.2m raised.

The couple said they wanted to do something different when they got married, and having completed the marathon they intended to change into their Sunday Best and head straight to their evening do- where they would have hopefully arrived first to see how they were feeling after a drink.
