The steps of Sheffield Town Hall are often occupied by a mix of wedding parties and activists.
But a rally for education activists had unexpected support when a bride put her special day on pause to sign their petition against grammar schools.
On Facebook, teacher and trade unionist Anna Christina said: “This amazing bride, instead of getting annoyed because we were all standing in front of the town hall with big banners as her bridal party came out of there, supported us and took time to sign the petition and got her bridesmaids to as well!
She added: “I think it’s lovely to see how many people do support us.”
More than 600 people signed the petition at Saturday's rally.
The Labour Party, the National Union of Teachers and Unison organised the event after Jeremy Corbyn announced a national day of action on education.
Speakers included Gill Furniss MP, Paul Blomfield MP, and Toby Mallinson from the NUT.
