A bride in Brazil has made a memorable entrance to her wedding.
The bride was in a helicopter that was also carrying the wedding photographer, pilot and a child. As the helicopter was coming into land at the vineyard wedding venue, a rotor blade hit a castle tower causing the aircraft to crash. Wedding guests rushed to help. All 4 on board the helicopter managed to escape before it burst into flames. Three of those on board suffered minor injuries, but the bride reportedly walked away without a scratch.

Both the bride and groom chose to continue with the wedding, with the smouldering wreckage of the helicopter in the background.
