Vi Stannard tied the knot with Derek Walker on Saturday, making her way to the church near their home in Harkstead in a wheelchair after she was injured in a fall last Thursday.
Stannard, however, had to return to Ipswich Hospital for further treatment after a happy reception for family and friends.
"She fell on her side when we were down at the river in Flatford on Thursday," the Daily Mail quoted Walker as saying.
"I had to take her into hospital. But we still went on with the wedding and it was brilliant.
"Vi was very brave about the whole thing and the hospital consultant was satisfied as long as she wasn't out for too long," he added.
