Based at the Brooklands Museum in Weybridge, Surrey, the county council has licensed the passenger jet for marriages and civil partnership ceremonies.

There will be room for a wedding party of 32 on board the plane, but those who like their airline grub will be disappointed to hear that this won’t be included.

Surrey county councillor, Denise Saliagopoulos, said: “We were more than happy to provide a civil wedding license that will mean this much-loved icon of the air can continue to be a place for happy memories long into its retirement.”
