A BICYCLE made for two has made for stylish wedding transport for a York couple.

Scott and Emma Caul, both 25, decided against a car to take them from the church to reception - opting instead for a rickshaw and a fleet of bikes.

The Heworth couple married at St Michael le Belfrey and then they made their way along the river to the Pavilion in Fulford by rickshaw.

They were surrounded by friends and family on Dutch bikes, another rickshaw and tandem bikes.

Well wishers cheered them on as they cycled through the city on Saturday.

Scott said: "We had a bottle of Champagne in the back. People loved it and were beeping their horns and saying congratulations. It was lovely.

"It was really nice to cycle there rather than sitting in traffic."

Scott and Emma were on a rickshaw pedalled by best man Jonny Emmott, ushers Joe Hall and Richard Vaughan were on tandems, while bridesmaids Rosie Smithells, Laura Caul and Joanna Smithells were on the other rickshaw pedalled by usher Ricardo Delgado.

Even the vicar Reverend Ben Doolan and the father of the bride Jim Caul got on bikes with everyone stopping at Rowntree Park to swap cycles.

Scott, a physiotherapist, and Emma, a teacher at Hemplands Primary School, met in 2009 while at university in York.

They decided on bikes as wedding transport as Scott is into cycling and has taken part in a number of charity bike rides.

Scott said about the wedding: "It was the best day of our life, it was amazing."
