Chizzy and Michaela Davis were wed after a brief panic when they got to the church and realised the rings had been left behind!

Thankfully the mini-crisis was averted when the couple’s driver dashed back to the house to retrieve them.

Dave and Michaela’s wedding was only delayed by about 10 minutes and the rest of the ceremony went off without a hitch.

Chizzy, ranked the seventh best darts player in the world by the Professional Darts Corporation (PDC), and his bride both play for Smokey O’Connors in the Morecambe Darts League.

The couple met at a darts tournament seven years ago, so as guests gathered at St John the Divine church in Heysham, their favourite game was very much the theme.

Vicar Rev Linda McCluskie played along, calling Dave and Michaela to the “oche” instead of the altar and then told guests to sing “Hymn number one hundred and eighty!”

The couple also gave their 200 guests some darts flights as favours at the wedding do’, held at Morecambe FC’s ground the Globe Arena.

But World Championship quarter-finalist Dave drew the line at a darts-themed wedding cake.

“He said, ‘it’s our wedding day, it’s not about darts!’” laughed Michaela.

The bride’s father Stephen Davis gave her away at the ceremony and guests included Dave’s fellow darts stars Wes Newton, Justin Pipe and Michael Smith.

Entertainment was by Stuart Michaels and DJ Raf.
