Newlyweds Jonny and Emily Smith had a rather lovely surprise on their wedding day.

As part of Armed Forces Day in Scarborough, the last flying Vulcan bomber flew past and inadvertently photobombed their wedding.

Mrs Smith said:

"I'm pleased to say the plane flew over as my bridesmaids walked down the aisle. It disappeared and then came back as I stepped on to the altar, so I did get some of the attention."
After the decision to ground the aircraft at the end of 2015 a Salute to the V-Force tour was planned.
 
The iconic aircraft flew over as much of Britain as it could manage over Armed Forces Day weekend.
