THE north-south divide was united following the marriage of Leanne Bergen and Josh Kleiman at The Old Swan Hotel in Harrogate.

Leanne, a medical writer for a digital healthcare agency, is the daughter of Sandra and Lloyd Bergen, of Leeds, while Joshua, who works in operations for an oil brokerage, is the son of Susie and Michael Kleiman, of Edgware.

Best men were Alon Gordon and Daniel Moses, bridesmaids were Lisa Boonin, Cassie and Annalisa Bergen, Tamara Shaffner and Hannah Lacy.

Grandmothers Marlene Shaffner, of Leeds, Maureen Horwich, of Whitefield, and Shirley Kleiman, of Hampstead Garden Suburb, joined guests who travelled from Israel and China.

Leanne met Josh when she joined Manchester University J-Soc at a freshers' fair before moving to London after graduating. The couple had a 'mini-moon' to New York and have settled in Mill Hill East, London.
