Sharon Travers was on her way to the ceremony at Cults Parish Church in Aberdeen, Scotland, to exchange vows with her fiancé, Martin Kelly. However, just when it seemed like the universe was conspiring against her, a Good Samaritan emerged to ensure that her dream wedding remained intact.

The vintage 1976 Triumph Stag, in which Sharon was traveling, decided to play its own part in the wedding drama when it suddenly stalled on the road. As panic set in, Sharon's chauffeur, who happened to be a good friend masquerading as a chauffeur for the day, promptly flagged down the first passing car.

That passing car turned out to be driven by Alan Knowles, a name that would soon be etched in the bride's memory as her savior. Without hesitation, Alan agreed to drive the distressed bride-to-be to the church.

Following the successful rescue mission, Sharon couldn't contain her gratitude. She hugged her newfound hero, thanking him profusely.

However, in the flurry of the moment, she forgot to inquire about his name.

Thanks to the power of social media and a community-driven appeal, the anonymous Good Samaritan was successfully identified.

"I'm glad the bride managed to get to the church on time," Alan said.

"I just really want to say thank you," Sharon responded. "I'm now laughing about it, but I certainly wasn't at the time. I'm so grateful. It was such a fantastic moment."
