Sheep farmers Anne and Kevin Robinson became the first couple to get married at the Great Yorkshire Show.

Anne, who met her husband previously at the show, said the rain didn't put them off.

"We're farmers so the rain didn't matter at all to us," she said.

"We're used to it. Anyway it's not about the weather, or the wedding really. It's about the marriage. We've had a lovely day."
