Clayton and Brittany Cook were posing for their wedding photos on a bridge when the groom noticed a boy struggling in the river.
Evening Standards reports that Mr Cook jumped into the water before pulling the young child to safety.
The groom told local media that the boy appeared to have been pushed into the river by one of his friends.
“His face was underwater and he was fighting, like he was really fighting,” Mr Cook told CTV News.
“Luckily, he was only a little guy… and I honestly just sort of hopped him up.”
Mrs Cook said her husband’s selfless actions and quick thinking were just some of many reasons she fell in love with him.
“That’s Clay to me… It’s something he would just instinctively do,” she said.
Wedding photographer Darren Hatt said Mr Cook’s reaction was so quick, he barely had time to take the photos.
He wrote on Facebook: “By the time the bride noticed and shouted out, Clayton had already jumped down and brought him to safety.”
