And two of the straw-stuffed creatures where whisked off to get hitched.

Rob Georgeson is a wedding photographer by trade and with no nuptials to snap he decided to send his pair of creations to the altar.

Working with his wife they created a bridge and groom scarecrow using her wedding dress and Rob’s tuxedo.

Rob said: “After three days of standing in the garden, I took the bride and groom off to a local field at sunset to get some lovely portraits of them just like I would be doing if I was shooting real weddings.

“Although they weren’t the most charismatic of couples, I managed to get some gorgeous photos of them that will hopefully raise even more awareness of the great cause.”

He died in November last year after losing his battle with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer.
