An East Ham couple made it a Valentine’s Day to remember.

Anselm and Anna Ezimoha were the first of eight couples to wed at the Newham Register Office.

The pair, who met through friends more than a year ago, later celebrated with family at a reception in the evening.

Anselm, 26, who works in security, said choosing to marry on Valentine’s Day made the occasion even more special.

He said: “It is a romantic day, a special day. My wife is very special to me.”

Anna, 23, a care worker, said she had a lot in common with her new husband.

She said: “Im a very open person and he is always telling me to calm down.

“We will go on our honeymoon later this year, in the summer.

“We want to visit Poland where I come from and Nigeria which is his homeland.”

She added: “We want to start a family very soon.”
