A couple from China have spent part of their honeymoon in Preston.

Legend Liang brought his new bride Carmen to the city where he studied.

The 33-year-old joined the University of Central Lancashire for a year in 2008 for his international journalism degree.

Wearing their full wedding outfits they posed for photos around the university’s Preston campus.

Legend said: “A lot of things have changed in the past 10 years both at UCLan and in the city. The Media Factory was a building site so it’s nice to see that looking so good, Fylde Building has gone and there’s others being built while in the city centre the market has changed so much.

“It’s also nice to see some things are exactly the same. The Flag Market hasn’t changed a bit, I used to like buying a jacket potato from a stall on there and I would sit on one of the benches watching people. I even took Carmen to revisit the potato man and found out the man I used to speak to had retired but his son was now happily running the business.”

Legend said: “She (Carmen) thought London was a huge city, just like we have back home but Preston was really nice because she could see how UK people live and work in a small city with everything they need being close by.”

Course leader of the international journalism programme Matt Horn said: “Legend certainly lives up to his name and has been a great friend of UCLan here in Guangzhou since he returned after graduation. He always showed the natural instincts required of a good journalist and is well respected in the city.”
