ROMANCE will definitely be on the cards for newlyweds Stuart McNae and Ann Lockwood.

They jet off to the sunshine of Gran Canaria for two weeks after their wedding tomorrow - but will be sharing their bliss with one or two others.

Twenty-four others in fact, as their honeymoon flight becomes a huge family holiday.

Sons, daughters, girlfriends and grandchildren are all planning to share the couple's big day and big romantic break.

But the couple, of Fernside Avenue, Almondbury, are more than delighted.

They had planned to marry on the holiday isle, but having made the booking, found they could not fit in with residence licensing restrictions.

"Most of our family were planning to come out for our wedding, so when we had to switch the cere- mony to Huddersfield Register Office we all decided to enjoy a holiday together," said Ann.

"I have three sons, William, Dean and Neil, and a daughter, Jenny. They are coming with us, along with their respective partners.

"Stuart's daughter, Lisa, is also coming, as are several friends and our witnesses for the day, Julie and Kevin Aston.

"I know it's supposed to be just the two of us - but I know we'll have a great time."

The couple work for the bus company First, Ann as a driver and Stuart as a supervisor.

They have been together several years and got engaged on Gran Canaria three years ago.

"It was in the resort of Puerto Rico that Stuart proposed, so we had to have our honeymoon there, even if we could not arrange the wedding itself," added Ann.
