NURSE Danielle should have been getting married to fiancé Pete, but instead spent her ‘wedding day’ working at the Isle of Wight's coronavirus test site.

Colleagues at the COVID-19 swab facility in Medina Leisure Centre's car park in Newport wanted to make sure she still got to ‘celebrate’ her day, so they held a mock wedding during a break.

Danielle and Pete, who have been together for 14 years, were planning to say their ‘I dos’ on the Greek island of Andros.

They have postponed their Mediterranean wedding until 2021, due to the lockdown restrictions.

Danielle's health visiting degree has also been put on hold and she has been redeployed to support front line workers from the Isle of Wight NHS Trust.

Danielle said: “We have been planning our wedding ever since Pete proposed to me on my birthday three years ago.

"There are a lot more people who are worse-off and I know I will get my special day next year.

“We also had a Zoom party with our wedding guests, so we all got to have a toast together.”
