Couple with last names 'White,' 'Christmas' marry just in time for the holidays

Wedding photographer on how coronavirus has impacted her 11-year-old business:

Alabama wedding photographer, Alisha Crossley, struggles to remain positive as her 11-year-old business is put increasingly at risk the longer her state’s shutdown continues.

Move over Mr. and Mrs. Claus, there’s a new holiday couple in town.

Kieran White and Tilly Christmas have come together in a union that should be celebrated by decking the halls with boughs of holly — or some jingle bells, at the very least.

The British couple, who decided to hyphenate their last names and become Mr. and Mrs. White-Christmas, were first engaged in 2018 during (what else) the Christmas season, South West News Service (SWNS) reports.

The couple originally planned to marry in July but had to postpone plans due to the coronavirus. On Nov. 13, however, they were finally able to wed in England in a COVID-safe ceremony with 13 guests in attendance.

The 20-year-old high school sweethearts said they didn’t put much thought into their sing-songy surnames until a friend tagged them in a photo with the hashtag “#WhiteChristmas.”

Tilly told SWNS she loved growing up with the last name Christmas but feels her husband will need some time to adjust.

"I wanted to keep the surname Christmas for a few reasons — I've always loved having it as a last name throughout my life and I really love Christmastime as well,” Tilly told SWNS. "It just so happens that the man I've married has the perfect surname to go with it!"

Kieran seems to be a fan of the unique surname as well, but Tilly concedes that he may not realize how complicated having the last name can be.

"I've grown up with the last name Christmas so I'm used to it but I think it'll take a while for Kieran to adjust,” she told the news agency. "I've booked tables at restaurants during the Christmas period before, and then found out the reservation wasn't made as they thought it was a joke!”

The couple met in high school and got engaged in 2018 during the holiday season.
