Any bride on her way to the church in summer sunshine is guaranteed to turn heads.

But Louise Cook, 30, prompted more than a few glances on her big day, as a fleet of bikers on Harley-Davidsons escorted her to the church.

The unusual wedding entourage helped make it a dream day for the biker couple Louise and Arron Dewar, 41, who live in Toft Monks, near Beccles.

The couple met when Miss Cook, who works at Norwich Harley-Davidson, undertook her motorcycle training at his centre.

The idea came about when Miss Cook, who is secretary of Norwich Harley-Davidson chapter, Iceni, which organises ride-outs for bikers, told members about her engagement.

She said the bikers were keen to make the couple's day extra special, adding: 'As soon as I said I was getting married everyone said, we'll escort you.'

Although initially she did not take to the idea, she came round to it after speaking to her fianc�.

'We thought about it and thought, actually, that's pretty cool,' she said. 'That's how we met so bikes are a big theme in our life.'

The spectacular journey saw Miss Cook travel in her fiance's classic Rover with her father John, from her parents' home in Summerfield Gardens in Lowestoft and along the A146 to the church in Toft Monks, flanked by Harley-Davidsons. Two women bikers spirited Mr Dewar and his best man to the church.

Post-wedding celebrations also took on a twist on the traditional, where guests were treated to a fish-and-chip meal and Parravani's ice-cream at the reception at Raveningham Barn, in Toft Monks.
