No wedding but still ‘a day to remember’ for GMP officers
Greater Manchester Police (GMP) officers Sergeant Marie McNulty and Police Constable Jay McGreavy should have been ‘tying the knot’ on Thursday (April 16), but instead they spent the day working to help keep the local communities safe.
However, their colleagues at GMP could not let the occasion pass without a ‘hint’ of wedding bells to make sure it was still “a day to remember”.
Sgt McNulty, from the Bury police team, was welcomed into the office at the start of her shift with a rendition of “here comes the bride”, and both officers proudly wore their corsages for their shifts.
Colleagues had also organised flowers and champagne to help brighten the day for the couple.
In addition, Inspector Rob Findlow, who is an ordained Anglican Priest, blessed the couple’s rings in a small private ceremony.
Sgt McNulty said: “I would like to thank my team for all that they did for us, we are so grateful and had a lovely day. The little touches were really appreciated, and team really did make it a day to remember, in our own way.
“We have rescheduled our day for April next year, so we have started our countdown again and are looking forward to the double celebrations when the time is right.
“For now, we are grateful for the celebrations we have had, and are glad we can play our part in helping support our local communities during these uncertain times.”
