Liam and Maria look blissfully in love…
But it’s been a stormy journey. Not least when Liam’s mates take the mick on his stag night
And who should come to the rescue, but Carla!
The black widow looks as if she’s got Liam just where she wants him
Saved by the belle… Get your hands off my man!
Pecs appeal… Maria’s mortified, but the rest of the Street look highly entertained
Later, Liam goes to put an end to Carla’s devious plans. But his resistance is futile
Or is it? Liam is so tempted, but he manages to put an end to it…
Maria miscontrues Carla’s goodbye peck as something else altogether
Liam’s kin arrive in their wedding best on the big day
The family portrait in full. Well, it will be when the bride arrives – and Michelle’s genetic son
Thanks mate – I knew I could count on you. Ryan steps up as best man for his uncle
But wait! There’s a hitch. Maria has decided she can’t go through with it
That make-up will have to be touched up if Liam manages to talk her around
If you love me, why have you got these texts from Carla!
Carla looks on, believing her wicked ways have won the day
Liam saves his best for last, but is it enough? Stop clicking now if you don’t want to find out
Maria finally triumphs in the battle of Bridezilla v the Black Widow
Oh no! Not the classic last-minute objection after the traditional last-minute hitch
It’s a false alarm and the deliriously happy couple become Mr and Mrs
Those mile-wide smiles have been well-earned!
Just like Carla’s face of thunder
The phrases ‘smacked backside’ and ‘face like a’ spring to mind
But there ARE well-wishers there. Kirk, Audrey and Fiz toast the happy couple
Ryan warms up the guests with a few mother-in-law classics
Before Liam delivers the emotional punchline
The drama keeps coming! A distraught Alex turns up uninvited
Then Carla corners Maria in the bathroom. ‘This isn’t over!’
Oh, yes it is. Never has a soap opera slap been more deserved than this lefthander
You couldn’t possibly tell from this gorgeous photo that Maria’s just had a bathroom bust-up
The smiles don’t look like they’ll ever fade
Let’s hope the new golden couple are happier in marriage than engagement. But don’t count on it!
