Daniel snapped up a wife...

TAKING photos of a singles event for the Jewish Telegraph helped Daniel Monk find a bride.

Donna Delmonte, one of the founders of the singles group, was celebrating her 45th birthday the day Daniel went along to take the pictures.

After 16 years together, they were finally married at Glasgow Reform Synagogue on Sunday.

Just a few weeks ago, in the depths of wintry weather, it had not boded so well for the bride-to-be who had persevered through serious illness and last-minute worries about whether the event would even take place.

She needn't have worried, as the couple enjoyed a sunny, happy wedding weekend.

Rabbi Nancy Morris officiated and the Kefli Ladies' Choir performed at their first chuppah.

Roanna and James Russell married at The Grand Central Hotel, Glasgow.

The ceremony was conducted by Rabbi Steven Katz, of Hendon Reform Synagogue.

The couple met while working in New York several years ago. Best man was Adam Russell and among the ushers was the bride's brother Adam Links.

Bridesmaids were Simone Benjamin, Georgia Alexander, Lauren Barnes and Sarah Woldman.

Flower girls were Yael Bolchover and Sophie Links. Guests travelled from America, Austria, Dublin and all parts of the UK to join the celebrations.

Roanna is the daughter of Martin and Sharon Links.

The couple have settled in London.
