It was more than five years ago, and I had only been in the role of disability policy adviser for a few weeks. I was…
A GYPSY bride was forced to get a 53ft LORRY to her wedding in order to carry her enormous wedding train that was the biggest ever made.
Tatiana, 25, from St Louis Missouri, was determined to have the biggest, blingiest gown in gypsy wedding history, and it is safe to say that she succeeded.
Although the Greek bride, who appears on the TLC show, Gypsy Wedding US, is concerned about how exactly she will make it to the altar to meet groom Zuki.
Speaking on the show she says: “I’m super excited.
“I still don’t know how I’m going to get to the venue, Sandra (the dressmaker) says she’ll sort something out but I have no idea. Maybe she’ll airlift me.”
Tatiana’s wasn’t too far off with dressmaker Sandra organising a flatbed truck to transport the bumper bride to the venue.
Tatiana’s dress consists of a spangled, fitted bodice with a separate skirt.
The massive gown is suspended from 500ft of industrial tubing and made up of over 200 yards of silk organza.
And the reams of fabric, boning and underskirts mean that the gown is far from lightweight.
“It’s pretty heavy, it hurts” says Tatiana.
“I would go through that five million more times because every inch of this dress represents my love for Zuki.”
Tatiana finishes her look with a pair of bejeweled stiletto heels – not the easiest shoe to navigate under her cupcake ball gown.
As the bride prepares to make her way to the venue Sandra surprises her with the 53ft flatbed truck, decorated with white ribbon and pumpkins in line with the couples’ autumnal theme.
With a convoy of motorbikes escorting her, Tatiana makes her way to the venue, safely harnessed to the lorry, waving to the public as she does so.
“Ever since I was a little girl I have wanted the biggest, blingiest baddass dress ever” she says.
“I am just so excited to finally have my dream come true. No gypsy girl has ever had this before.”
Meanwhile a nervous Zuki awaits his bride at the venue.
In line with Kurdish tradition, Zuki must not turn to look at his bride until she arrives at the altar but becomes increasingly aware of the comotion behind him.
Escorted by her dad Nico, Tatiana struggles down the aisle to greet her new husband and her dress clearly impressed.
“When I turned around and saw the dress, she was absolutely beautiful” says the groom
“She looked like an angel.”
