New innings at Lord's

Akhila Ranganna

We've heard of underwater weddings and getting married in a hot-air balloon. But if you are a cricket lover and are planning to get married, here's something that could be right up your alley. Lord's - the home of cricket - is now licensed for civil marriage and civil partnership ceremonies. And if you do choose to say your holy vows there, some of the perks include - champagne on arrival, a three-course wedding breakfast and a personalised scoreboard message. And to top it all off, the three wedding packages on offer even include two tickets for the couple to a day of a Test match. And while you are there, you could even upgrade to include a tour of Lord's as well. Starting a new innings takes on a very different meaning.
