IT may not be Westminster Abbey, but Luke Robinson and Vicky Mee’s royal wedding day marriage will have a certain regal feel.

The couple will wed at 11.30am tomorrow – only 30 minutes after Prince William and Kate Middleton, the participants will be dressed in royal blue and the newlyweds will make their home at Windsor Terrace, in West Cornforth, County Durham.

Luke, 24, from Tursdale, and Vicki, 21, from Brandon, met through friends in 2006.

Their wedding day has been three years in the planning and the date was set last May – well before the world knew what other significance Friday, April 29, 2011, would assume.

“The first thing that crossed my mind was prices will go up,” said Luke, a window cleaner. “No, it’s canny. It gives us something extra to remember the day by.”

The couple will wed at Durham City registry office, will have lunch with relatives at Whitworth Hall Hotel, near Spennymoor, enjoy a ceilidh in Mainsforth village hall, before honeymooning in Rome.
