The Bride Had Just Finished Putting On Her Dress When The Best Man Ran Into The Hotel Shouting That His Wife Was Giving Birth Outside
ʙʀɪᴅᴇ’s best friend’s waters ʙʀᴏᴋᴇ seconds after she arrived at the wedding venue.
Every pregnant wedding guest’s ᴡᴏʀsᴛ ɴɪɢʜᴛᴍᴀʀᴇ came true… when the ʙʀɪᴅᴇ’s best friend found that her waters were ʙʀᴇᴀᴋɪɴɢ just seconds after arriving at the wedding! The ʙʀɪᴅᴇ (also called Amanda) had just finished putting on her dress when the best man ran in to the hotel shouting that his wife was giving birth outside. Her mum and ʙʀɪᴅᴇsmaids ran down to help. Pregnant Amanda was quickly rushed into a car outside the hotel wedding venue – but there wasn’t enough time to make it to hospital. Amanda was already starting to go into second-stage labour. An ᴀᴍʙᴜʟᴀɴᴄᴇ car quickly arrived and the team started to turn the car into a makeshift delivery room.
As guests milled around, the mother of the ʙʀɪᴅᴇ, ʙʀɪᴅᴇsmaids and dad-to-be rallied together and collected bedsheets from the hotel. They then held them up around the car to give Amanda some privacy from guests and interested passers-by! “They had to get huge sheets from the hotel to cover up the car because there was such a commotion and everyone was staring at her,” explained ʙʀɪᴅᴇ Amanda
Amanda then ɢᴀᴠᴇ ʙɪʀᴛʜ to a healthy baby girl. Amanda and her 7lb 9oz daughter were taken to hospital and missed the ceremony on Saturday morning. Her husband Gareth went with them and so missed his best man duties while the ʙʀɪᴅᴇ and groom went on with the ceremony.
Luckily ʙʀɪᴅᴇ Amanda Vasey was more than happy to share the limelight – and the pictures of the ʙʀɪᴅᴇ and groom with the newborn have become the ʙʀɪᴅᴇ’s favourite from the ᴅʀᴀᴍᴀ-Fɪʟʟᴇᴅ day.
“She kept saying sorry she had ruined the day and all that but she hadn’t ruined it,It’s funny actually because she totally shied away from the wedding because she was pregnant. She didn’t want to be in the pictures and she didn’t come to the hen do. But in the end it all ended up being about her!” ʙʀɪᴅᴇ Amanda said
The new baby doesn’t have a name yet have a name, but the couple have discussed calling her Amanda, after her mother and the ʙʀɪᴅᴇ.
