The bride and groom who ended up in A&E on their wedding night

A newlywed couple have revealed how they ended up in A&E on their wedding night.

David Phillips and his new wife Jordan, from Llanfoist, had been enjoying the their big day at Clearwell Castle in Gloucestershire before disaster struck.

David, 24, said: "I was with the boys from work at the party and I don't know what happened but one got up or was messing around and the table managed to knock over.

"There were only two glasses and we went to grab the glasses to stop them falling over and as we grabbed them they just smashed.

"My mate had a tiny little cut but my hand was soaked with blood and it kept on coming."

For David, who met pub landlord Jordan six years ago, something like a blood-soaked hand wasn't going to stop him from enjoying such a special day.

So it was only on the insistence of others that he was encouraged to take a trip to the nearby Nevill Hall Hospital.

The newlyweds travelled to the hospital together along with David's mum and aunt for moral support.

Dressed in full wedding attire, it was no surprise the group attracted a bit of attention in the waiting room.

David said: "By the end of it we were all chatting. It sounds silly but for A&E there was quite a good atmosphere.

"It could have been a lot worse. Maybe it was because it was our wedding night but they attended to us quite quickly, I think we were there an hour or an hour and a half.

"Our party ended at midnight and this was 11.15pm. I think a few people had the last songs but a lot left anyway."

Thankfully the A&E visit didn't ruin David and Jordan's big day, and his hand is now on track for a full recovery. But it will make a story to remember for years to come.
