An Australian couple have been left with a black wedding instead of a white wedding, after a bushfire came extraordinarily close to their wedding venue.
The couple, Carli and Ennis Cehic from Melbourne, planned to marry in front of 170 guests at Galwiji Homestead in Scotsburn, Victoria on Saturday, according the ABC.
"I was on my way and the fire blew through in front of us, I couldn’t get through to the wedding," the bride told the Herald Sun. "They thought I was running late."
In a last minute dash to safety, the groom-to-be was rushed to a nearby pub — where he met up with his future wife.
The wedding was reorganised in moments and the couple said "I do" in front of their guests at the Crown Hotel in Buninyong, Victoria, according to the publication. It was a different ceremony to the homestead wedding they had planned, but after eight years together they weren't letting a fire ruin their plans.
