Karen Jagger posted on Stuart’s mother Helen Moorat’s Facebook page: ‘I am devastated. I have worked with Stu and Dave for six years and your son was always the one to make me laugh and think my day was not that bad.
‘He will be missed so very much by us all. My comfort is that Georgie made him so happy you could see the happiness everyday as they grew to love each other.’
Grief-stricken relatives and friends left flowers at the scene this morning.
A police spokesman said: ‘Enquiries are ongoing and we would again ask that anyone who saw the couple at a wedding reception on Friday evening, and in particular anyone who saw them leave, contact Sergeant Tom Marshall on 725111.’
