When it comes to gatecrashing, there can’t be many more unwanted guests than the police and drug dealers.
But that’s exactly what newlyweds Toby and Becky Eyre had to contend with as they posed for pictures in Hinksey Park.
A high-speed chase cut through the middle of the wedding shoot on Saturday February 3 as Thames Valley Police officers photobombed the otherwise traditional mementoes.
Bystanders urged the couple and their photographers to get out of the way as officers pursued two men suspected of dealing Class A drugs.
The good-natured coppers could be heard shouting “congratulations” to the happy couple from their car window as they sped past.
Photographer Annie Crossman who took pictures of the police in pursuit, said: “Becky and Toby took it all in their stride, seeing the fun side of things, and even posed with the police men who came over to have their picture taken.”
The happy couple tied the knot at St Aldates Church earlier in the afternoon.
Police said on Twitter that a 43-year-old man from South Hinksey and a 36-year-old man from Oxford were arrested on suspicion of possession with intent to supply under the hashtag “#TVPstronghold”.
Both men have since been released under investigation.
