When Kerrie Easton walked down the aisle practically the whole country got to know about it!

Her picture was splashed across the national press showing her preparing for her big day in the snow.

It was all thanks to freelance photographer Larne Campbell who spotted an opportunity after seeing a bridal car parked up at Keighley Road, Illingworth, Halifax.

He knocked on the door and asked to take pictures and Kerrie agreed to be phototgraphed setting off and at Bradshaw Church.

Her patient husband-to-be - Kieron Kendell - was left standing at the altar until his bride arrived 15 minutes late last Friday.

But she was worth the wait for next morning the couple went downstairs for breakfast at the Holdsworth House Hotel, Halifax, to find a printed story featuring Kerrie from the Daily Mail website on their table.

Several phone calls and texts followed from family and friends who had seen news of the wedding in a variety of media covering the wintry conditions.

“I had been praying for no snow all week but in the end it made it really special,” said Kerrie, 32, a dental receptionist at Park Road Dental Practice, Halifax.

“I was in shock and emotional the next day but it was a nice surprise.”

Kieron, 31, is a sales director at Mag Equipment Ltd, Elland, said the couple had a fantastic day and the vast majority of guests turned up.

“The pictures topped the whole day off,” he said.

The couple grew up together on the same street, Sturton Grove, Illingworth, and have been together 12 years.

They have two children, Ellie, nine and Eadie, three, who were bridesmaids along with Molly Dennis and Joanne O’Shea.

The best man was Mark Dennis and the groomsmen were Kieron’s brothers, Jason, Andrew and Kevin.

Kerrie was given away by her father Phil Easton. She wore an Ian Stuart dress and a Flo and Percy wilderness forehead band with Tiffany & Co pearl earrings and bracelet.

The couple, of Illingworth, will have a honeymoon in Dubai in April.
