Having renewed their vows at St Thomas’ Church in Bedhampton, Teresa Anslow, 51, and her husband Bill, 58, saw their day take an unfortunate turn.

Mr and Mrs Anslow, who have been married for 23 years, were being driven in a vintage car when the hydraulics failed.

With seemingly no way of getting to the reception on Hayling Island, a man living on the street came across and told them to hop into his Bentley instead, ensuring that they arrived on time for the afternoon’s celebrations.
