Their love was written in The Star... now a Sheffield couple have tied the knot almost two decades after getting engaged.

Childhood sweethearts Craig Veitch and Sarah Walker finally made it down the aisle after Craig re-proposed last month via an ad in The Star’s family announcements section.

Seventeen years after they first agreed to wed groom Craig, 40, decided they’d waited long enough and dreamed up the romantic gesture.

He got his reply when Sarah, 38, also used The Star to respond, with an ad reading ‘Craig, after 24 years – yes.’

The couple married at The Garrison Hotel in Hillsborough, in front of their two children Henry, 12, and Daisy, one.

Craig said: “Sarah looked absolutely beautiful - she was definitely worth the wait!”
