But one Lyng couple, who married on Saturday December 16, bravely took to the ice after saying 'I do' to recreate their first date.

Tim and Lucy Kemp skated on Norwich Ice Rink on Castle Mall Gardens in their wedding finery following their ceremony at Norwich Castle - the city's register office.

The couple, who have a three-year-old daughter together called Lara, had their first date 11 years ago on the ice rink outside the Forum in Norwich.

They got engaged six years ago.

Mrs Kemp, 36, nee Forster, said: 'We wanted to rekindle that moment at our wedding. It was a bit daunting because it has been a while since we have been on the ice. At least we didn't fall over.

'It has been a brilliant day. It is going to be so memorable.'
