They were supposed to be celebrating the wedding of their dreams but two Geraldton doctors have postponed their matrimonial bliss to fight COVID-19 on the front line.

Emergency doctors Greta Geninson and Max Allin delighted their social media followers after posting a photo dressed in scrubs and holding signs reading “we should be getting married today but instead... we went to work for you so stay at home for us”.

Friends and followers dared the couple to name any future children Corona and Covid and thanked them for their service to the community.

They later hammed it up at the front of Geraldton Regional Hospital after colleagues dressed them as bride and groom in hospital supplies.

“When you can’t get married but you work with some incredible people and they dress you in butchers paper and a garbage bag to make you feel like the most beautiful couple!” they said on their Instagram travel account.

The pair were planning an Easter wedding but lockdown restrictions and border closures forced them to postpone until September.

It will be third time lucky for the couple, who had already cancelled another wedding date due to losing their venue in the NSW bushfires.

The post comes as Telethon and Seven West Media launched the #dancingtogether competition to help bring humour and fun back into the lives of West Australians living in a State under lockdown.

Families and individuals have been encouraged to submit their most creative videos showing them busting a move at home in isolation.
