A paramedic bride had to call on her skills on her wedding day, as members of her family crashed their cars just minutes after the ceremony.

Sarah Ray was photographed by her mother Marcy Martin as she left her car to tend to her grandmother whose car was reportedly crashed into by another vehicle.

Sarah had just married husband Paul in Clarksville, Tennessee, when the accident occurred, and despite the crash, which meant her grandmother had to go to hospital to be checked out, they were able to celebrate at the reception that evening.

Sarah took to Facebook to thank everyone for their support.

"I just wanted to say thank you to everybody on here for all your kind comments.  My husband and I were both there, even though I was the only one pictured," she wrote.

"I really don't think we did anything out of the ordinary.  I would like to believe just about anybody in the medical field would have done the same, especially for family... dressed up or not.  I'm just very thankful everyone was OK.  We are proud of our job and proud to be a part of Montgomery County EMS."

Sarah also told News Channel 5, "I know the face that I'm giving my mom was the 'Really mom?  Right now you're taking a picture?'.  I'm sure we were a sight on the side of the road for people driving by."
