A bride and groom had something blue for their wedding day when they got a police-style escort to the reception.
Leanne Teague and Neil Merry had just said "I do" when they realized the route to the hotel they had booked for the party was blocked by a 1,000-strong street carnival.
Dozens of their 100 guests were snarled up in traffic jams caused by road closures as decorated floats paraded through Worcester city center.
But their day was saved when two bikers dressed in police-style uniforms escorted them through the city to the Whitehouse Hotel.
Mom-of-one Leanne, 38, of Worcester, England said: “It was the best day of our lives and the police escort? Well, it was the icing on the cake.
“We’d had the ceremony which was lovely and posed for pictures but heard news from the guests on their way to the reception that the roads were all blocked because of the carnival.
“The hotel was right in the middle of the city where all the roads were closed so we had a bit of a panic about how were going to get everyone there.
“Luckily, a few calls were made and two bikers appeared and led us through the road closures.
“At one point we got so close to the carnival I thought we’d end up joining it.”
The bikers, who escorted the couple from St Stephen’s Church was arranged by staff at the hotel.
A spokesperson for the Worcester Whitehouse Hotel said: “We were delighted to assist the smooth passage through the carnival for our bride and groom.
“It’s not every day you get a police escort to your wedding.”
Full-time mom Leanne, and husband Neil, 38, a highways worker, plan to go on honeymoon next week.
