A TRAVELLER bride has revealed she tied the knot at the age of 16 but the big day didn't go completely to plan.
Appearing on My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding, teenager Lully showed how was leaving her family to marry fellow traveller Martin, and would move into his caravan.
The couple had been dating on and off for three years after meeting at a screening of Shrek 4 at the local cinema.
She said: “I started talking to him on the phone, he grabbed me again, I kissed him and we’ve been courting ever since.”
On the show, Lully did some last-minute preparation before her wedding, including getting a glam manicure and adding bling to her bridal Converse.
But drama struck when she went to pick up her princess-style wedding dress and bridesmaid gowns two days before the ceremony.

After getting into a disagreement with the dressmaker over the payment, Lully said: “She won’t give me my dresses, she’s saying we never paid.
“You can’t get a dress in two days.”
After the police were called, a compromise was reached.
In the end, Lully was able to take home her wedding dress and her chief bridesmaid dress, but the other 10 bridesmaids were left without dresses.

Upset Lully said: “I have no bridesmaids at all, it’s nice for the photos and things to look back on, now I don’t have any.”
The build-up to the wedding was so stressful that it started to affect Lully’s health.
Speaking in a whisper, the young bride told cameras: “I think I’ve got tonsillitis, I think I’m losing my voice.”

Another added: “I love the 16 year old she seems so sweet and genuine and thankful for her family.”
