Keith Voyse, 58, and Suzanne Carpenter, 53, married at Great Yarmouth register office.

They arrived in a fully equipped and decorated ambulance driven by friends Susan Mitchison and Andrew Callard.

Mr Voyse, who will live with his wife in Acle, was diagnosed with terminal cancer in February 2016, and has just three months to live.

It had always been a lifelong plan for the couple to get married since getting together 16 years ago.

They plan to visit family in Sheffield next weekend and to see a Sheffield United game. They will then start planning their bucket list.

The wedding was only discussed a week ago, and they booked the wedding just three days before tying the knot.

As they are both Pagan, they will have a handfasting as an official ceremony.

Last weekend, around 120 motorcycle riders from across the eastern region organised a convoy of bikes for Mr Voyse.

He rode pillion in the convoy, which went from Acle to Attleborough.
