A CARAVAN park was turned into a wedding venue and obstacle course as part of a 'Husky Invasion'.

Sibes and Sled Dogs Husky Rescue, from Lancashire, descended on Hales Hall Caravan Park in Cheadle from Thursday, August 28, and over the weekend into this week.

It follows an event the group held at the caravan park in June where there were 126 dogs and 136 people.

However this latest event had a twist, as the organisers John and Christine Duxbury were 'married' before they and their wedding guests flung themselves into an It's A Knockout Competition.

The couple, who were actually officially married before the event, said: "The former camp event was such a success we wanted to do it again bigger and better, but with a twist.

"The wedding and It's A Knockout went perfectly and as well as our group there were a lot of locals who turned up to see what was going on and join in, as well as residents from elsewhere on the caravan park.

"The family who own it also joined in and judged the dog show on Saturday morning.

"Best in Show went to 'Goose' who is owned by Louise Stretton-Downes, who pulled Christine to the 'wedding ceremony' on a three wheeled dry sled.

"The day's events were followed by a hog roast with 100 people and everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly.

"We can't wait to come back next year to Hales Hall for another big event."

The proceeds from the event £2,600 have all gone to the charity.
