Married life can be a rollercoaster at the best of times.
But for one new Leeds bride, it turned into a real-life white knuckle ride before she even had the chance to change out of her wedding dress.
Suzanne Broomfield-George turned up at her wedding reception venue, the Radisson in Leeds city centre, on Saturday to find a full fairground had parked up right outside.
But rather than allowing it to become a distraction, she and her wedding party ended up becoming the main fairground attraction.
Suzanne, 28, from Cross Gates, married Gareth George at Leeds Town Hall and the couple made their way to the nearby Radisson hotel for the wedding breakfast.
The travelling fair was not the most welcome of surprises, as it had required closing off the main road outside, meaning the couple’s wedding carriage – a VW Camper Van – had to be re-routed.
But after negotiating with the fairground organisers, the newlyweds were allowed free range on the rides.
And so, 16 of the wedding party – including the bride in white floaty dress – climbed onto the Disco Fever ride.
Suzanne’s sister-in-law Kirsty Abbot told the YEP: “After many stressful weeks and months of planning, the wedding day was finally here and my sister-in-law breathed a relaxing sigh of relief.
“That was until she arrived at her reception venue and found a fair had pitched up overnight right outside.
“She had been told about it the night before, but did not know the scale of it and had expected to find one ride.
“But the whole road was closed off and the wedding car had to go another route.
“At first she was really upset but once we got her on the ride it really cheered her up.
“Instead of letting it ruin her day she decided if you can’t beat them – join them!”
She added: “A big crowd gathered and were cheering the newlyweds on.
“We had the majority of Leeds in front of the Radisson hotel at a standstill as everyone stood to watch the bride in her wedding dress get on this ride.”
