Hurricane Bertha gate-crashes wedding

A wedding video has gone viral across the Internet - after the special day was gate-crashed by the remnants of what had been Hurricane Bertha.

A bride whose big day was gate-crashed by the remnants of Hurricane Bertha says it was "brilliant", despite the flooded venue.

Richard Owen and Katy Lomas, from South Yorkshire, were exchanging vows at Wentworth Castle in Barnsley when a huge downpour suddenly started.

But they decided to embrace the wet weather and pose for pictures in the floodwater.

Bride Katy told BBC Radio 5 live's Victoria Derbyshire: "We were happy we could have a reception at all... It wasn't ruined at all, it was changed."

Photographer Jon Dennis, whose photos have since gone viral on the internet, added, "I knew something unique was happening... it did break one of my cameras in the process but it's been worth it."
