Paula Williamson on her jail wedding to Charles Bronson: 'We've only we kissed and held hands through prison bars!'
PAULA WILLIAMSON ON HER JAIL WEDDING TO CHARLES BRONSON - BRITAIN’S MOST VIOLENT PRISONER!
She appeared on the show back in February 2017 to talk about her relationship with Charles Bronson - who is currently serving a life sentence, having been in prison since 1988.
And Paula, returned to talk to Katie, Nadia, Jane and Andrea to discuss her upcoming nuptials, which she exclusively revealed will be taking place in HMP Wakefield on the 14th November, where he is currently behind bars. She also revealed that her family will not be attending the ceremony but a handful of friends will be there to witness the vows. And Charles will not be allowed to attend the wedding reception which will be held in a nearby hotel.
‘Why would I be with a man who has been in jail for so long? I’m in love with the man,' Paula said of her decision to marry him. 'I’m not in love with the fact he’s a prisoner. Behind every prisoner is a person. He’s done some things he’s not proud of but he can only blame himself, he blames no-one else.’
'We're allowed to touch so we kiss and hold hands through the bars,' Paula said of her visits but revealed they haven't been allowed any intimate time together.
‘He will not be in jail for the rest of his days. I will make sure personally he won’t be in jail for the rest of his days,' Paula said. 'I won’t give up. When I want something I always get it and I want him out and he’s going to be out, end of.
Nadia asked Paula if she was scared and she said, ‘Charles Bronson was a very violent offender, a violent prisoner, a man I don’t know. But Charles Salvador is the man that I’m marrying and he has not committed a violent offence at all. He changed his name in 2014 and hasn’t committed an offence since then’. Paula added, ‘He’s come a long way and how he’s rehabilitated himself through his artwork.’
When Jane asked if things will be difficult if he is released from prison, Paula said it was a question of ‘when’ he was going to be released, as opposed to 'if'. And she admitted that things will be ‘very difficult when he gets out for him and me. We've spoken about having children, but I obviously can't where he is now.'
‘We are not asking for him to be let out tomorrow, just get him off segregation where he is now and allow him to progress through the system towards his release.’
