It will be another 88 years until this happens again ..................

Couples take last unusual wedding date of the century

Register offices across the country have reported an increase in wedding bookings as couples choose to get married on the last day of the century when the date, month and year match.

Fifty-one ceremonies will take place in the district of Gretna in southern Scotland, which is well known for Gretna Green - a 25-fold increase on the same day last year.

It will be just over 88 years before 01/01/2101 comes around.

In Gloucestershire, west England, there will be 12 ceremonies. The number of weddings on an average Wednesday is one.

'Won't forget date'

In Barnet, north London, 14 have been booked, about three times more than usual.

One couple said they particularly wanted the date because the number 12 has had significance their whole relationship.

Joeh Chan, 24, and Ginny Chan, 20, from Colindale, Barnet, will be exchanging vows at 12:00 GMT.

Gretna Wedding Rushes

  • 09/09/09 47 ceremonies
  • 10/10/10 46
  • 11/11/11 53
  • 12/12/12 51

Joeh said: "We met on the 12th of the 12th four years ago at a friend's party."

He proposed on Ginny's birthday, the 12th of October.

He added that he had planned to propose on 12/12 last year but Ginny was sick. He waited almost a year for the right date again.

"I waited until her birthday because I wanted an occasion that felt special.

"Twelve has been really lucky for me."

Ginny said: "He has no excuse now for forgetting the date."

'Year to remember'

Barbara Aves, 65, and David Donno, 67, will be one of six couples marrying in Havering, north-east London.

They have also chosen to wed at 12:00 GMT.

Barbara and David married partners a week apart in 1969 and were later widowed. They met seven years ago.

Barbara, a retired civil servant, from East Ham, east London, said they chose the date because 2012 had been such a memorable year with both the Queen's Diamond Jubilee and the London Olympics.

The couple became engaged in September.

Barbara Aves said 2012 had been a great year because of the Olympics
"Twenty-twelve's been a really good year," she said.

Marcus du Sautoy, Professor of Mathematics at Oxford University and President of the Mathematical Association said he thought the rush to marry on 12/12/12 shows what a "mathematical mind" people have.

"They are drawn to these dates because they see a pattern," he said.

"Although it looks trivial people being drawn to this date, actually it's a very powerful way of looking at the world.

"I think it's less trivial than it looks."

Commenting on the unusual nature of dates at the start of the century, he added: "We are all incredibly lucky to be living in this 12-year period because it's pretty fallow after that."

Councils noted that on 9/9/09 when the date proved similarly popular, it was of particular interest to couples in the emergency services.

It would be interesting to know how many romantic devils chose 6/6/6 to tie the knot.

Retired DCI Gonçalo Amaral: "The English can always present the conclusions to which they themselves arrived in 2007. Because they know, they have the evidence of what happened - they don't need to investigate anything. All this is now a mere 'show off'."

Retired murder DCI Colin Sutton: "I would also like to make the point that Operation Grange was so restricted from the start as to be destined to fail."

Assistant Commissioner Mark Rowley made public on national TV that Operation Grange is a complete fraud.

Ex-DCI Andy Redwood had a "revelation moment" on BBC's Crimewatch on 14th October 2013 when he announced that Operation Grange had eliminated the Tanner sighting - which opened up the 'window of opportunity', in accordance with their remit, to allow the fake abduction to happen.

Despite "irrelevant behaviour" from blood and cadaver dogs in the McCann's apartment, on Kate McCann's clothes, and in the car they hired three weeks after Maddie disappeared, Ex-Chief Inspector, Ian Horrocks, said: "The thought that Kate and Gerry McCann had anything to do with the death of their daughter is frankly preposterous."

Gerry McCann called for example to be made of 'trolls'. SKY News reporter Martin Brunt doorstepped Brenda Leyland on 2 October 2014. She was then found dead in a Leicester hotel room. Brenda paid the price. She paid with her life.

Ex-Deputy Chief Constable, Jim Gamble QPM, congratulated SKY reporter, Martin Brunt, on twitter for doorstepping Brenda Leyland on behalf of Gerry McCann.
