World's first testtube baby is a bride

BRISTOL, England, Sept. 6 (UPI) -- The world's first test-tube baby has become a bride in Bristol, England.

Louise Brown, 26, married Wesley Mullinder, 33, Saturday, the Sun reported Monday.

Brown and her beloved were surrounded by 15 security guards to shield them from view due to a magazine deal, the British tabloid said.

However, the Sun managed to report she wore an ivory gown as the couple exchanged vows at St. Mary Redcliffe Church.

Brown made worldwide news when she was born on July 25, 1978, through in-vitro fertilization. More than a million babies have come into the world by the same means since then.

Brown was quoted in the Sun as describing her wedding as "perfect."

"Now we are trying for a baby," she said. "It would be a dream come true."
