Hovercraft takes centre stage at Burnham-On-Sea couple's wedding

One of Burnham-On-Sea's rescue hovercrafts was at the centre of a wedding ceremony on Saturday (September 12th) when a long-serving crewmember tied the knot.

Chris Gammon has been part of BARB's volunteer crew for over five years and was keen for fellow crewmembers to join his special day when he married his partner Emmalene at St Andrew's Church on Burnham seafront.

Chris and his best man arrived at the church on The Light Of Elizabeth hovercraft and, when the service ended, crewmembers formed an archway of hovercraft blades outside for the newlyweds to walk under.

Chris and Emmalene were then taken to their reception on the hovercraft.

Chris said: "BARB has been an important part of my life for several years, so both Emmalene and I were very keen for the hovercraft to be part of our celebrations."

"We were delighted to have The Light Of Elizabeth there to make the day even more memorable."
