Bride thinks groom's ex has crashed big day when woman turns up in wedding dress

When a mystery woman burst until Stacey Owen’s wedding reception after her first dance, she thought it was her new husband’s ex.

The woman was wearing a white dress, shouted ‘stop the wedding, it should have been me’ and hit the groom with a bunch of flowers.

But luckily, Stacey quickly realised that it was all a joke that her maid of honour Jackie Lewis had played on her.

Jackie had got comedian January Rees to gatecrash the wedding on 30 November at Ty Newydd Country Hotel in Aberdare, wales.

‘I managed to persuade Jan to take part, it could have gone drastically wrong. We were planning it for 4-5 months,’ said Jackie.

‘Stacey expected some sort of surprise and I just wanted to do something silly. I was searching for ideas online when I came across videos of drag queens going down the aisle which gave me this idea.’

Talking about the wedding, bride Stacey said everyone was terrified when the stunt first unfolded.

‘I just thought “what is going on?” as we had just done our first dance. At first the lights were dim and I couldn’t see her face so I just thought it was one of Keri’s nutty exes.

‘But when the lights came up I could see Jan’s face and I knew who she was then. My partner was terrified at first.’

Once they got over the shock, the couple saw the funny side and said it got the rest of the guests talking.

Stacey added: ‘Everyone at the wedding was laughing and they were hiding when she was whacking people with the flowers.

‘The whole day was brilliant, my partner was hiding behind me, he just said “I hope she doesn’t terrorise me” as he’d seen her live before as a stand-up comedian.’

It was the first time January had ever done anything like this and she said she was quite nervous.

She said: ‘Jackie phoned me and said “Jan, only you can pull it off”, but it could have gone either way. I got my old wedding dress from the attic and got in the car and drove to the venue.

‘You should have seen the neighbour’s face. Only the DJ and Jackie knew about it.

‘At first the bride was shocked and she thought I was a crazy ex-girlfriend.

‘The response has been amazing, everyone seemed to love it.’
