Bride Takes The Public Train to Her Wedding

Bride Takes The Public Train to Her Wedding
Wed 27-08-2014

Before bride-to-be Leanne Cole got to walk down the aisle, she first had to walk down the aisle of a Merseyrail train to get to her wedding.

The budget-conscious 34-year-old decided against the usual stretch limo or horse-drawn carriage, preferring instead the 10.50 from Fazakerley.

Dressed in her wedding gown, and with her hair and make-up just so, Leanne walked from her mum’s house down to the station and waited for the train like it was any other day.

But the romantics at Merseyrail got wind of Leanne’s plan (her mother told them!) and decided that she deserved a little bit more than the usual service.

They decorated the middle carriage of the train – and the stations at Fazakerley and Central in Liverpool – in the same colours as Leanne’s flowers, adding the message ‘All the best to Leanne and Andrew on your wedding day’ on the train and on the platform information boards.

Leanne said: "I can’t believe what they have done for me. It’s absolutely fantastic."
