Weddings are always memorable affairs but this Russian couple can truly claim that theirs was unforgettable.
Denis and Nelya said that their dreams came true when a 21-stone BEAR turned up as the guest of honour - and ‘married’ them.
The newlyweds, from Moscow, Russia, wanted brown bear Stepan to witness their nuptials, and they even got him involved in the ceremony itself.

And the resulting photos are something you wouldn’t normally find on a Facebook album of the big day.
Denis said: “We both knew Stepan is a very kind bear but still it is a huge, unpredictable animal so we were a bit scared, but still happy to be able to make our dream come true.
"It was a fantastic experience to have this photoshoot with Stepan.

"It is such a special feeling to hug a real, huge bear, and you cannot compare it to anything else.
"We will absolutely remember this day forever.”
We all will.
