It attracts thousands of people and has become a major festive attraction.

And now Norwich’s Tunnel of Light on Hayhill has formed the perfect backdrop for a pair of newlyweds who married at the city’s Assembly House before Christmas.

Photographer Simon Watson, 47, from Buxton Road in North Walsham, captured the romantic moment between Louisa and Paul Bassham under blue and white lights.

It was taken in just five minutes in front of an audience as temperatures plummeted to freezing conditions.

Mr and Mrs Bassham, 49 and 38, from Emmas Way in Little Plumstead, met two years ago on the school run and got engaged on April 27 this year in Gibraltar.

The couple described their day as magical and said the Tunnel of Light picture was “fantastic”.

Mr Watson, who pursued his dream of working as a photographer three years ago, said: “I’m over the moon with the picture.”
