Daniel, a student at the Midrash Shmuel Yeshiva in Jerusalem, is the son of Rita and Alan Ackerman, of Prestwich, while podiatry student Natasha is the daughter of Avril and Alan Links, of Broughton Park.

Bridesmaids were the bride's niece Batya Malka Links and Chaya Leeman. Pageboys were the bride's nephews Zvi Links, Dov Links, Akiva Links, Matti Links, Yehuda Leib Links, Avraham Links, Yitzchok Links and Yehoshua Links, as well as Yosef Leeman and Dovid Leeman.
