A couple have staged Britain’s first Covid-compliant drive-in wedding, with 250 guests watching them tie the knot from Audis, Land Rovers and Lamborghinis on a 500-acre Essex estate to get around the 15-person limit.

After the ceremony, bride Roma Popat and groom Vinal Patel, both 30, toured the grounds in a golf buggy, waving as parked-up friends and family honked their horns.

Guests were welcomed to the unique event on Friday with a hamper containing tasty snacks – as well as safety instructions, anti-bacterial hand gel and bin liners for their rubbish.
