LOVE birds Suzanne Batorfi and Ian Dickson have become the first couple ever to tie the knot in Cusworth Hall.

They celebrated in style as they exchanged their vows at 18th Century Georgian mansion, which is run by Doncaster Council as a museum.

The ceremony was carried out in Mr Wrightson’s Library, an intimate space filled with period features.

The couple then celebrated and posed for pictures around the hall, in Lady Isabella’s Rose Garden and the beautiful landscaped grounds.

Ian and Suzanne, from Tickhill, worked together at Network Rail but really hit it off at friend’s party and have been together for the past three years.

Suzanne said: “We chose Cusworth Hall because it’s a beautiful venue with stunning views.

“We’ll have some spectacular photos to remember our special day by. We visit regularly and when it was announced last year that they had a wedding licence, it seemed perfect for us.”

Grade One-listed Cusworth Hall grade was built between 1740 and 1744 for land owner William Wrightson. The last owner died in 1952 and the house eventually opened as a museum in 1967.
