When Emily Baldwin arrived at church for her grand wedding entrance, the doors wouldn’t open and she found herself locked outside!

But all ended well when the entrance finally opened for Emily to walk down the aisle to her husband-to-be Josh Hocking.
The couple tied the knot at St Helen’s Church in Waddington followed by a reception at Eaves Hall, Clitheroe.
Emily, 22, said: “We met the vicar outside and when it was time he went in through another door to open the main entrance for me.
“The next thing we could see the handles rattling from the inside but they physically couldn’t open it!
“I could hear the music playing - we chose Flying Without Wings - and the whole song had finished by the time the doors finally opened!
“My heart was racing, I was nervous and there was a wasp buzzing round my bouquet - but the whole thing did help me to calm me down.
“When the doors opened and I walked in everyone literally just cheered - actually made the day"
