Video: Paralympian dances for first time at wedding

Warning: Video contains some flash photography.

Paralympic athlete Nathan Stephens danced for the first time in his life with his bride Charlene at their wedding reception on Saturday.

The couple had spent eight months secretly practising the three-minute routine, which reduced family and friends to tears as they watched.

The 25-year-old later admitted: "I was more nervous walking onto the dance floor than when I competed in the London Olympics."
