It was celebrations all round for four teachers at one West school who all got married on the same day.

English teacher Charlotte O'Neill married PE teacher Martin McDermott and music teacher Becky Jones married Philip Greenow – while science teacher Katie Lee who also tied the knot with Darlington Azubuike.

Both Martin and Katie are past pupils at St Peter's High School in Gloucester, while the current school choir sang at Becky's wedding. More than 20 staff attended Martin's wedding.

The new Mrs Greenow said: "I think it's great that we were all married on the same day. Phil came to speak at my church on a Sunday morning back in November 2011. I was playing the piano during the service. My mum made sure we were introduced afterwards by almost dragging Phil towards me and asking, have you met my single daughter?"

The wedding service was held at Southgate Evangelical Church on April 12.

It seems it was love at first sight for Martin when he clapped eyes on Charlotte during a teacher-training day at the school in Stroud Road.

Charlotte said: "Martin has always said he noticed me the moment I had to awkwardly introduced myself to the whole school on my first day during inset day.

"Our wedding day was everything I had imagined and more. The congregation enjoyed the part when Martin answered for both of us with 'We Do' to which the priest responded, 'you can't answer for her, she's not your wife yet."
