Michael celebrating in Spain for winning the LGCT Grand Prix of Madrid
It’s going to be a busy summer for British number two, Michael Whitaker. Not only does he have the European Championships in Herning, Denmark next month, to prepare for, he is also counting down the days until he weds long-term partner Melissa Braybrooke.
Michael, 53, proposed to Melissa last Christmas and the pair are set to tie the knot in a registry office, followed by a marquee reception at their Nottinghamshire home in August.
The couple have three children together — Jack, Molly and Katie — and Jack will be acting as best man on the big day while the two girls are bridesmaids. This will be Michael’s second marriage. “I’m not nervous now, but I will be on the day!” said Michael.
