Pics: Coronation Street weddings through the years

As Carla and Nick prepare for their big day, here’s a stroll down the aisle of some of Coronation Street’s weddings through the years.

There have been 110 weddings in Coronation Street’s 55-year history - although some have barely lasted past the vows.

The first Street wedding was that of Jack and Annie Walker’s daughter Joan to Gordon Davies on 8th March 1961.

The most recent was Sally Webster and Tim Metcalfe’s nuptials on 5th October 2015.


 


On 4th August 1962, Ken Barlow, now the show’s longest-running original character, married for the first time, having sold his scooter to fund the wedding. Valerie Tatlock became Ken's bride number one when she walked up the aisle at St Mary’s.
 

Ken married a further three times, to Janet Reid in 1972 and Deirdre Langton in 1981...

and again in 2005.
 

Gail Rodwell and Steve McDonald are the most-married characters, each having walked down the aisle six times.

Six couples have married each other twice: Brian and Gail Tilsley, Jim and Liz McDonald, Kevin and Sally Webster, Steve and Karen McDonald, Ken and Deirdre Barlow, and Nick and Leanne Tilsley.




The most enduring marriage on the Street was that of Jack and Vera Duckworth, who celebrated their golden wedding anniversary weeks before Vera’s death in January 2008.

The shortest marriage was that of Steve McDonald and Tracy Barlow, whose union fell apart during their wedding reception in 2012.



Carla Connor has been married three times before, to Paul Connor, Tony Gordon and Peter Barlow, while Nick Tilsley has had two previous weddings, both to Leanne (nee Battersby), in 1998 and 2013. 

Have a look at all of Carla's weddings here, in pictures!

110 weddings in 55-years... so which year had the most weddings? We can't possibly have had a wedding each year?

I met Chris Quentin (Brian) at Stringfellows in London a few years back (he's worked there for years as Promotions Manager). Such a nice chap and always ready for a yarn about Corrie.

You had three weddings within weeks in 1992.

The only years that haven't had a wedding are:

1960, 1964, 1966, 1969, 1971, 1976, 1984, 1989, 2006.
