BLACKPOOL chairman Karl Oyston took time away from one place of worship at Bloomfield Road to visit another for his wedding on Saturday.

Mr Oyston married partner Vicki Wheeler during a ceremony in stunning surroundings at Christ Church in Over Wyresdale, near Lancaster.

The service was attended by members of the Oyston family – including father Owen and mum Vicki – and guests from the football club.

Manager Ian Holloway was a guest at the event along with assistant manager Steve Thompson.

Club president Valery Belokon also flew in for the ceremony.

My Oyston wore a grey morning suit with a red tie and buttonhole flower while Mrs Oyston chose a traditional white gown and carried a bouquet of red.

Following the ceremony, the wedding party returned to the Bloomfield Road stadium for a reception.

Ahead of the event, Mr Oyston told The Gazette he was neither nervous nor excited, just looking forward to the day.

He added: “I can’t wait and I’m really looking forward to it.

“Hopefully it will be a good day.

“I’m not sure what the weather will be like on the day, but we are looking forward to a good day with our families and close friends.

“After the wedding we are coming back to Blackpool for a function at Bloomfield Road and then going to Chile for a few days.”
