Couple Forced To Move Wedding By Barack Obama

Monday 19th May 2014

A couple in Cardiff have been forced to move their wedding because the US President wants to host a banquet at the venue.

Cardiff City Hall

Christie Connolly and Sam Holland had booked Cardiff City Hall for their big day in September.

They were asked to move after Barack Obama and other world leaders decided to hold a dinner there as part of the NATO summit.

Instead the couple will tie the knot in the Lord Mayor's Mansion House in the city.

They have extended their invitation to the President and his wife, saying they can come for some cake.
