Damone Barnes and Sally Eastmond, from Dorking in Surrey, told ITV Border what it was like to take part in a huge event on their wedding day no one was meant to know about.

Crowds and pipers were up early this morning and were out on the streets of Langholm to welcome the baton relay to Dumfries and Galloway.
The baton started at Langholm Monument and was carried by Common Riding Cornet 2014, Dale Irving supported by his right hand man Alasdair Cavers and left hand man, Andrew Elliot.
