A bride and groom discovered their wedding venue was next to a wrestling event - so jumped in the ring for a fight. Andrew and Robyn Petersed tied the knot at Oswald House in Kirkcaldy on May 25 - but to their surprise, the Dunnikier Country Park Fayre had begun next door.

The couple from Grangemouth in Scotland spotted the event was hosting a live wrestling show. The couple, who have been together for 15 years, were initially disappointed - worried that they would miss out on stunning outdoor wedding photos.

But the pair quickly decided to make the most of the situation - with bride Robyn immediately asking to take a spin in the ring. "We were both disappointed, because we’d seen a photo of a couple outside Oswald House and it looked absolutely stunning," said Andrew.

"On the morning of the wedding, I saw people setting up all these bouncy castles and inflatables – and I thought, ‘we’re never going to get that photo. Initially, it was disappointing, but I think we’d both decided to make the most of the day. We’d had enough stress with planning the wedding and honeymoon!"

"We could see it all from our bridal suite while we were getting ready, so we were all thinking it was a nightmare," Robyn added. "We had our ceremony, and we were having our drinks, and then Hannah from the wrestling company came over and congratulated us.

"I saw her t-shirt, which had the name of the wrestling company on it, and I immediately asked if I could get in the ring. We were racing down to the wrestling ring and then I realised I had no idea how to get into the ring.

"There were no steps, so I had to navigate this massive dress to try and get into the ring. I finally got into the ring, and none of our guests knew what was going on!

"We’d not told anyone, and we’d just run straight towards the ring, so we could see guests slowly but surely starting to migrate down to watch us - everybody was loving it." The couple say the event made the "best day ever" even more memorable - with the bride, groom, and guests partying on until 4am.

"The day was amazing," said Andrew. "I had never been too fussed about having a wedding – they’re expensive and I thought the cost to enjoyment ratio couldn’t be that high, but I had the best time."

"We had so much fun – everything was such a laugh, and everyone had a good time. We were just laughing the whole day," said Robyn.

"From 6AM on Saturday when we started getting ready, to 4AM on Sunday, I was just laughing my head off." PWR Wrestling, who hosted the wrestling event, have even offered the couple a free pair of tickets to their next show once they return from their honeymoon in Mauritius.

Robyn said: "We’re absolutely going – we’re very excited!"
