A horrified bride was so ashamed of her wedding photos she got married again after managing to lose more than half her body weight.
Zoe Davies, 33, of Sunbury, Surrey, was in a size 24 dress and weighed 22st 3lb when she first walked up the aisle with her fiancé Pete in 2000. But the memories from that day left her so ashamed that she went on a diet and then convinced her 36-year-old husband to tie the knot again.
"Every girl wants to look like a princess on their wedding day. But I looked hideous in those photos," she told the Sunday Mirror. "If you compare the pictures it's like Pete has married somebody else. Everyone kept asking what Pete had done with Zoe! Finally I had the wedding I'd dreamed about."
Mrs Davies is only 5ft 4ins and met her future husband Pete while he worked as a fitter and she worked in a bakery. At the time she was 10st but by their first wedding in 2000 her poor diet meant she had ballooned and doubled her weight and dress size.
But after realizing she had to change her unhealthy ways, she ditched her high fat diet in favor of cereal, fresh fruit and salads and started exercising.
Her efforts paid off and she dropped to 11 stone and dress size 12. Her new slimmer figure filled her with confidence so the mother-of-two asked Pete to marry her again so she could have a wedding album she could be proud of. He agreed and the couple tied the knot again in front of 100 friends and loved-ones in August.
