Biker bride’s sidecar wedding entrance

A biker bride revved up the guests' excitement by arriving for her wedding in a motorcycle sidecar, escorted by a noisy procession of Harley Davidsons.

Gemma Gayfer-Hall and her new husband Neil tied the knot at All Saints Church in Mattishall, near Dereham.

The happy couple's family and friends were enthralled as the 24-year-old bride made her entrance, accompanied by about 20 members of the Norwich-based Iceni chapter of the Harley Owners' Group.

The procession was led by Gemma's father Andy Gayfer, who shares his daughter's passion for bikes.

'Me and my dad have always been into bikes and I've had a Harley for about a year, so we asked the Iceni group to come and do it,' she said.

'The whole day was just amazing, I asked everyone to wait outside for us to arrive and it was so loud. It was pretty cool. I smiled all the way.

Although the spectacular arrival on June 18 missed the day's heavy downpours, the new bride said she would not have let the prospect of water damage to her wedding finery ruin her big moment.
