A newly-wed bride spent the first 48 hours of her marriage behind bars after attacking her husband on their wedding night.

Kerry Carmichael appeared from custody after being arrested just hours after tying the knot with Liam Moir.

The bride admitted assaulting her new husband by repeatedly pushing him on the face, within 12 hours the bride was in a cell at Perth Police HQ and she remained there until appearing in court.

Perth Sheriff Court was told that the mother-of-two became intoxicated after downing a series of drinks bought for her by guests at the reception.

After exchanging vows at Perth’s Register Office, the couple joined friends and family at a reception in the bowling club in Almondbank.

At one point during the evening, Carmichael was found sleeping on the bowling green in her wedding dress.

She was roused and taken to a relative’s home to get changed.

"She was intoxicated and unhappy with the complainer. As they were heading back to their house she repeatedly pushed his face backwards before breaking free from him and running off."

Sheriff Stewart said: "It is a very unfortunate set of circumstances that your wedding celebration has ended up in the way that it has."
