They say dogs are man's best friend, and a couple from England put that into practice when they incorporated their two pups into their wedding ceremony.
Emma-Leigh and Shane Matthews tied the knot at a gorgeous historic castle in England. Of course, they chose their closest friends to stand up alongside them for this important moment in their lives. But next to their human pals stood two other important members of their bridal party: their dogs Nikko and Phil. Nikko served as the maid of honor, and Phil was the best man.
The pups made their way down the aisle, just like the other members of the bridal party. Phil even had a GoPro camera attached to his collar so he could film the whole thing.

The couple and their fur babies posed for some great pictures, and then they all hit the dance floor:
