REDHILL, England, Sept. 10 (UPI) -- A ring dropped by the best man at a British wedding was found by the vicar hours after the end of the ceremony.
Elizabeth Gray and Lewis Aubrey said they were in the middle of their vows at St. John's Church in Redhill, England, during the weekend when Aubrey's brother, Matt, dropped the ring, The Daily Telegraph reported Monday.
The wedding party and guests spent 10 minutes searching for the ring before deciding to complete the ceremony using the bride's mother's ring as a substitute.
Guests searched the church while the couple posed for photographs outside the church, but they were unsuccessful.
However, the Rev. Nicholas Calver said he was not ready to give up.
"I was determined to find it and went back to the church in the evening. In the end, there was a crack between the step and the raised dais," Calver said.
He said it took him about two hours to find the ring and he rushed to the reception where he performed the "take this ring" portion of the ceremony for a second time as the groom placed the token on his wife's finger.
