The wedding of Stuart and Claire Craven will go ahead today despite a lightning strike destroying most of the clothes for the ceremony. The strike happened on Tuesday at the Heanor home of Stuart's mother.

It caused a fire, destroying suits for the groom, father of the groom, two best men, bridesmaids' dresses and the mother-of-the-groom's dress.

The family are thrilled to have got replacements for the ceremony.
