A wedding surprise went wrong when a barn owl brought in to deliver the rings to the couple fell asleep.
The bride had arrange for the surprise for her husband-to-be who is a falconry fan and the bird was meant to fly over the congregation and land on a trainer near the couple.
After repeated failed attempts to coax Darcey the owl down Rev Chris Bryan decided to continue the ceremony using a back up set of rings.
He said: "This chap popped up at the front of the church next to us with a gauntlet on, as another chap appeared at the back of the church with a box.
"The owl appeared, and took a bit of coaxing to take to flight. It paused for a little bit, eventually saw the gauntlet, and then took off. But instead of landing on the arm of the man by us and delivering the rings it went up over our heads and landed up in the roof space."
Darcey remained in the rafters of the 900 year-old Holy Cross Church in Sherston, Wiltshire for an hour until the guests had left before a ladder was fetched to get her down.

An exhibition of her collection is due to open in the town this evening.
