An imaginative couple whose wedding rings were stolen days before they were due to be married, tied the knot with Haribo sweets instead.
David Norris, 43, and his new wife Natalie Norris-Lee, 39, banished the heartache of being burgled by placing a ring-shaped chewy sweet on one another's fingers during their wedding on Sunday.
Mr Norris said the couple then gobbled the jellies before they melted - to cheers from the congregation gathered at St Laurence's Church in Meriden, Warwickshire.
After months carefully planning the ceremony, the then groom and bride-to-be had laid out their wedding bands and other gifts in the kitchen at their Northampton home on the Friday night, ready to travel the next day.
But when they awoke on Saturday morning, they found thieves had stolen everything, including irreplaceable jewellery belonging to Mr Norris's late mother, and the rings.
The couple then went to a local jewellers where Mr Norris bought a replacement wedding band.
However, Mrs Norris-Lee then struck upon the idea to use the jelly sweets instead.
The couple, of Milton Street, in Kingsley are now jetting off on honeymoon in Thailand.
Northamptonshire Police said: "A couple from Northampton who were due to get married had their wedding rings stolen by burglars.
"Their house in Milton Street North, Kingsley was broken into sometime between 11pm on Friday, June 20 and 1am the following morning."
Anyone with information about the burglary is urged to call officers on 101 or contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111.
