Rumble / Everyday HeroesWeddings are about the couple, their stepping into a holy union and into a happy life together. There’s a lot of symbolism in the ceremonies that happen during weddings, each with its own meaning while relatives and loved ones send off the two lovers into their new life.

You have to admit, the wedding day is probably the one day that most girls eagerly expect their entire lives. The dress, the excitement, the gifts and the look on her soon-to-be-husband's face when he sees her walking down the aisle towards him. What could a girl possibly want more. However, for this couple, their wedding day seems to have taken a sharp turn and came out to be something they will remember aside of them getting married on the same day.

A couple's wedding bliss takes a dramatic turn on an Australian beach. Groomsmen Dougal Grey and Clayton Deane rushed to rescue a fisherman after his boat capsized close to shore. And the wedding videographer was in a perfect position to capture it all - including an aerial view from his drone. Bride Jo-Anne Easterbrook says it was quite entertaining for her and husband Aaron. SOUNDBITE: Jo-Anne Easterbrook, bride, saying (English): "Took a bit of camera pressure off me and Aaron so it was a bit of a break. There was a lot of jokes about it at the reception about the boys in their underwear obviously." And after such an extraordinary wedding, the couple can only hope for a more tranquil honeymoon. A wedding video captures two Australian groomsmen rescuing a fisherman from a capsized boat offshore.
