It has been a summer of love at one Westcountry RNLI centre.

Three volunteer crew members of Exmouth RNLI made it a summer to remember, with Andrew Stott, Steve Satchell and Mark Champion all getting married to their partners within a few months of each other.

Andrew and Susie were married on June 2, at Lake View Manor, in Dunkeswell.

Steve and his wife Sammy were married at Withycombe Church, Exmouth, on August 18. They wanted the RNLI to take part in their ceremony and were provided with ceremonial oars and a traditional Guard of Honour by fellow crew members.

And Mark and Victoria married at Deer Park Hotel in Honiton on September 8.

An Exmouth RNLI spokesperson said: "We wish all three volunteers and their new wives the very best of married life."
