Lizzie, 27, who married fellow cyclist Philip Deignan, 33, in her home town of Otley, West Yorkshire, arrived 10 minutes late for the ceremony because her vintage bus that was taking her to the wedding was held up by a cyclist. 

However, the irony of the situation didn't stop the celebrations. Lizzie stunned friends and family in a floor-length, lace gown.
