The couple were married at Great Portland Street Synagogue, London, by Rabbi David Lister.

Best men were the groom's brother ALEX and friend JULIAN LARAH. Bridesmaids were NICOLA SPITAL, LAUREN RUSSELL and AMELIE MADEN while pageboys were NOAH MADEN and BOBBY VAIZMAN. Guests travelled from Israel and America.

Also present were grandparents FAYE COHEN, MARLENE and GEOFFREY RUSSELL and LYN MIRELMAN.

After a short holiday in Marrakesh, the couple, who have settled in Friern Barnet, London, hope to honeymoon in India later this year.
