A Cornish company has received interest from around the world for its novelty wedding vending machine.
Autowed is an 8ft (2.4m) tall pink machine compared by the makers to "a parking meter mixed up with a Cadillac".
But it has caught the imagination of people around the world after a video was posted on the internet.
Requests for machines have come from as away as Russia and Brazil, Falmouth-based inventor Concept Shed said.
For £1 it plays a specially composed intro version of the Wedding March and asks customers to select their type of union. Bride and groom have the option of pressing one on a keyboard for "I do" and two for "Escape".
Purchasers get a wedding receipt and two plastic rings in an egg-shaped plastic capsule.
Previous inventions by the Cornwall firm include an animatronic Frankenstein's monster.
