Warms socks and wellies for Emmerdale wedding
Most brides give very little thought to their wedding legwear, perhaps assuming that their pins will be clad in luxury silk stockings or finest hosiery, but one on-screen bride plumped for thick warm socks.

Charlie Hardwick, the actress behind Emmerdale landlady Val, has admitted to the Daily Record that for her wedding day scenes, far from top-quality tights, she was wearing warm socks and boots.

"Under my gorgeous specially made dress, I was wearing wellies, a lovely pair of long johns and a thick pair of socks," she told the publication.

Despite such warm precautions, the shoot was still cold, meaning she came close to being her own 'something blue', the actor quipped.

However, Charlie's fictional wedding was not as wild as some.

A recent ceremony in Derbyshire saw the groom abseil down the church steeple and the bride arrive by canoe when one adventure-loving couple recently tied the knot.
