The Power of Love between one Sci-Fi loving couple was on full display as they celebrated their big day with a Back to the Future-themed wedding.

Jordan and Pete Ayriss, from Ravenswood, married in lockdown but were finally able to celebrate with a proper "knees-up" with friends and family on June 11 at the Manor Ballroom.

With many nods to the film on display, the biggest attraction with the arrival of a replica DeLorean with pictures taken outside Christchurch Mansion.

Pete, who is originally from Felixstowe, said: "We are fans, every now and again we will have a Back To The Future off and throw each other trivia, throw out movie quotes at each other.

"It is a completely iconic trilogy and we do hope they never do anything else with it again. We did see the show and that was amazing."

Pete, 38, works in the film industry operating drones, which sees him travel the country and the world.

He said: "I've never seen a DeLorean until our wedding day and it was something special. It was worth every penny."
