Here Comes The Bride…

by | 23rd, June 2006

HERE COMES the bride, eight feet wide, walks in the church and gets stuck on the other side.

Welcome to the wedding of Carly O’Brien and Michael Coffey. And get a load Carly’s dress, which occupies a page in the Sun and most of a church in Gloucester.

Carly’s dress weighs 25 stone and cost £25,000. It is 8ft wide. The train is 60ft long. It is a blend of 30-layers of chiffon, fake diamonds and 4,800ft of netting. Carly has spent nine and a half hours getting into it.

And, as you might have already guessed, the dress has been inspired by the mo-del Jordan and what she wore for her marriage to Peter Andre.

And just like Jordan, Carly arrives for her wedding in a pumpkin-shaped horse-drawn carriage. To complete the look, Carly wears a huge tiara and orange skin.

What her husband is wearing is not revealed, although a look of abject terror would be forgivable…
