A romantic couple from Wrangle cycled all the way up to Scotland for their wedding day.

Marcus Kenning and Maria Whitaker pedalled 272.6 miles to Gretna Green to say ‘I do’. Marcus said: “We did it in just over three days, burning 18,000 calories and climbing a total of 12,500 feet.”

The couple saw to it that their bikes played a part in their big day, and guests later enjoyed a wedding cake with two mini bicycles on top.

The couple, both in their 40s, regularly go on long cycle rides and Marcus joked he would have got married in Lycra if he had the choice.
