A terminally ill man has fulfilled his wish of marrying his partner.
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.
