Rebecca and Brian Pepper were being photographed on their wedding day before an inquisitive bull stepped in
Photographer Rachel Deane initially used the animal to her advantage thinking it would make a ‘cool’ element to the romantic pair’s wedding pictures
But the situation quickly turned manic when the bull started to charge at them both standing next to a vintage car
The country couple chose to have their wedding pictures taken in the paddock which belonged to a friend of the photographer
All the commotion quickly died down however when Mr Pepper ushered the bull away an into the distance
Brian and Rebecca Pepper were patiently going about their business when little did they know their bovine visitor was headed in their direction
The moment was captured through the lens of wedding snapper Rachel Deane – who initially used the bull to the couple’s advantage before the bucking bovine started to take matters into his own hands.

One last look around before it was time to take matters into his own hands
The safety of the couple was paramount but there was also another worry lurking nearby – the vintage Austin Princess they were leaning on for that special added affect.
‘I actually started to get a little bit worried about the car,’ Ms Deane said.
It was a heritage limousine hired from a Tamworth car company – whose bosses would not be too keen on them returning a damaged vehicle with an imprint of a bull’s bucking head.
But Mr Pepper’s years of experience rounding up cattle quelled the beast before it eventually ran away without doing any harm.
Mr and Mrs Pepper were married in Tamworth on a Monday and chose to be photographed in a paddock which belonged to a friend of Ms Deane’s.
Ms Deane had been photographing the whole day’s events and said the day had somewhat of an animal-related theme – most notably animals finding themselves in tricky situations.
Earlier she witnessed two ducks mating nearby guests at the Pavillion Function and Conference Centre.
‘Animals were the highlight of the day and the emcee at the reception even spoke about it (at the reception),’ she said.
