Sarah Jayne Dunn and Jon Smith's one-eyed dog acted as their ring bearer as they tied the knot - but the canine nearly lost the bands.

The couple married at The Holford Estate in Cheshire, north west England, earlier this month, and guests couldn't help but laugh when their pet pooch Ming Ming, who looked the part in a pink gown, was led down the aisle by the personal trainer's best man, but she was nearly in the dog house.

Jon said: "She's like our first child so we had to get her involved. She's a one-eyed pug, which is totally ridiculous, so we thought it'd be fun.

"She did a great job, although I'm glad I didn't know she'd nearly lost the rings until after the ceremony."

Sarah - who is known for her role as Mandy Richardson in 'Hollyoaks' - enlisted some help from a costume designer on the Channel 4 soap for Ming Ming's outfit.

She said: "Nadia Tahari, who is one of the 'Hollyoaks' costume designers, made her dress."

Personal trainer Jon admitted he was "blown" away by how incredible his 36-year-old bride looked on their big day.

He said: "I was blown away. It's hard to put into words how beautiful I thought she looked.

"It's a moment I'll never forget."

While Jon had his eyes firmly fixed on the blonde stunner, Sarah revealed her dad joked to her about pulling out of the nuptials.

She told OK! magazine: "I had a huge wave of adrenaline as the bridesmaids and Stanley started walking down the aisle.

"My dad turned to me and joked, 'It's not too late to back out, you know.' "
