A couple from Brisbane were forced to exchange marriage vows online with guests watching them tie the knot over the net, because of a flight cancellation. Their flight was canceled following the volcanic ash cloud over Europe left them stranded in Dubai.
Sean Murtagh, 24 and Natalie Mead,30 had tied the knot at a civil ceremony in inner-city New Farm of Queensland three weeks ago. Sean's mother had organized a second reception in the UK, as they could not attend the wedding. But Sean and Natalie could not get the connecting flight to England, when they landed Dubai.
"Everyone pray to volcano gods that I can get on a plane today, or I am going to miss my wedding," says Natalie on her Face Book page.
But the Millennium Airport Hotel staff came for the help of the pair and arranged a web-video link-up in their room.
"They have decorated the lobby of the hotel. They made us a three-tier wedding cake, set up a laptop with Skype and a projector," explains Sean about the wedding.
Finally the pair exchanged marriage vows again with 80 guests watching the ceremony online from London.
"Bugger if we are going to let a little thing like a volcano stop us from getting married and sharing it with Sean's family and friends," says Natalie.
