David, director of a ladies clothing company, is the son of Nadia Cohen, of Prestwich, and the late Jack Cohen, while biochemical scientist Elana is the daughter of Galina Romanovsky, of Manchester.

Elana's brother Gregory made the trip to Manchester from Minsk for the celebrations, along with guests from Canada and America.

Best men were Daniel Radivan and David Barnett. Bridesmaids were Sophia Radivan, Annabelle Barnett and Mia Goodall. Pageboys were Spencer Barnett and Manny Radivan.

After a honeymoon in Kenya the couple will settle in Bury.
