CARDBOARD WEDDING: Jill Jefferies and James Dobinson get married in the Transitional (cardboard) Cathedral in Latimer Sq.

The Transitional Cathedral in Latimer Square has been christened with its first wedding.

The Transitional Cathedral in Latimer Square, erected after the Christ Church Cathedral in Cathedral Square was badly damaged in the 2011 earthquake, hosted the wedding of Jill Jefferies and James Dobinson.

The pair were the lucky first to be married in the cardboard structure since its opening in August.

The wedding was attended by approximately 100 well-wishers, family and friends.

The Anglican cathedral was designed by Japanese "disaster architect" Shigeru Ban in conjunction with local architects Warren and Mahoney.
