JUDITH Kaplan and Daniel Farshi were married at Sha'are Hayim Synagogue, Didsbury, almost five years after meeting as students at Leeds University.

Architect Daniel is the son of Ros and Igal Farshi, of Cheadle, while primary school teacher Judith is the daughter of Sandra Skedgell, of Glasgow, and Charles Kaplan, of Glasgow.

Best man was Andrew Black. Bridesmaids were Ruth Harding-Dempster Kaplan, Victoria Harding-Dempster Kaplan, Sarah Winetrobe, Michelle Winetrobe, Rebecca Mitten and Hazel Sheppard.

Joining in the celebrations was the groom's grandparents Betty and Jack Lent, as well as guests from Israel, Finland and Thailand.

After a honeymoon in Marrakesh, Morocco, the couple will settle in north London.

Jennifer is hit for six by her wizard of Oz

AS England and Australia face each other to win cricket's Ashes, it's quite apt that Jennifer Harris has been bowled over by Aussie Stephen Wicks.

Jennifer, of Crumpsall, and Stephen met in Israel four years ago, but only started dating just under three years ago.

And they were married by Rabbi Avraham Herman at Higher Prestwich Hebrew Congregation.

Jennifer, a teacher, is the daughter of Norma and Howard Harris, of Crumpsall, while accountant Stephen is the son of Elizabeth and Leon Wicks, of Sydney.

Best man was the groom's brother Adam Wicks. Bridesmaid was the bride's niece Emily Attias and pageboy was nephew Joseph Attias.

Joining in the celebrations were guests from Sydney and America.

After a honeymoon in Sicily and Malta, the couple have settled in north London.

TECHNOLOGY was at the fore as Rachel Gordon and Jacob Colton married at the Old Swan Hotel, Harrogate.

Graphic designer Rachel is the daughter of David and Gina Gordon, of Leeds, while Jacob, who works for a web hosting company, is the son of Kay Colton and the late Nicholas Colton.

Best man was Daniel Colton, bridesmaids were Michelle Benson and Lark Bieber, pageboys were Rafi Gordon, Noah, Zack, Ethan and Max Colton, and flower girls were Charlie and Kezia Colton.

Ushers were Simon and Adam Colton, Joel and Alon Gordon, and Lee Espinoza.

Rachel's grandmother, Reeva Gordon, of Leeds, joined family from Sunderland, London and Israel at the simcha.

The newlyweds met on an educational programme in Jerusalem six years ago when Rachel was with Maccabi and Jacob was travelling with RSY.

Following a honeymoon on a South African safari and Mauritius, the couple have settled in Richmond.
