Wild uninvited guest makes appearance at wedding

This is the hilarious moment a happy couple paws-ed for a wedding photo only to be ‘photobombed‘ – by a TIGER.

Loved-up Andrew Madgwick, 25, and bride Karma, 30, were posing for official marriage pictures after their reception at Paignton Zoo in Devon.

The couple decided to get some shots at the attraction’s viewing platform – when Banda the Sumatran tiger suddenly wandered into the shot.

Luckily the newlyweds were protected by a glass barrier but photographer Vicki Boulter seized her chance to capture the funny image.

The picture shows the happy couple gazing into each other’s eyes – as the massive animal peers at the camera between them.

Vicki, of Torquay, Devon, said: “We were having a walk around the park and we decided to go over to look at the viewing platform.

“One of the tigers was sunbathing on the ledge when Karma shook her dress and caught its attention.

“All of a sudden it came bounding over and right into the shot. He posed for a split second and then walked away.

“Karma and Andrew didn’t quite realise the tiger had come so close as I was getting them to pose. But they were delighted when they saw the photo.”

Karma, a performing arts teacher, and Andrew, a videographer, had married at Bishops Court in Exeter before heading to the zoo for their reception.

Banda is one of two endangered tigers at the zoo.
