ALISON GETS HITCHED AFTER ALL ON WEDDING MERRY-GO-ROUND
By Karen Attwood, PA News
A bride-to-be ditched four days before her wedding found another groom in time
and married him instead, it emerged today.
Alison Innes, 20, from Arbroath, Scotland, was eight months pregnant when her
fiance Peter Knight, 28, texted her to tell her he had got cold feet.
But the ceremony went ahead almost as planned on February 20 after her
ex-boyfriend Daniel Innes, 18, stepped in to take Mr Knight's place.
This is not the first time true love has gone off its course for Mrs Innes.
Last year she hit the headlines when her mother, Pat, 44, married her
ex-husband, George Greenhowe, 21.
She had discovered her first husband in bed with her mother just 10 days after
their marriage in Angus, in November 2001.
She filed for divorce naming her mother in the papers but then managed to
forgive the pair and gave them her blessing - and even became their bridesmaid.
Mrs Innes told Closer magazine the news her second wedding was off came "out
of the blue".
"I didn't see Peter, but I received a text saying sorry," she said.
"I was very upset and didn't know why he backed out."
But after hearing of her plight Mr Innes immediately asked for her hand in
"I was so shocked," she said. "We weren't together although we'd dated for
four months last year."
It took her just 48 hours to decide to go ahead and marry unemployed Daniel.
Invitations were changed and a different size kilt ordered.
Mrs Innes does not know who the father of her child is - it could be Mr
Knight, Mr Innes or his brother John.
"I realised I did love Daniel," she said. "He made me laugh and he's good
"He knew he may not be the baby's father but he promised he'd support me and
that the baby would be his first priority."
Now she says: "I feel certain I've done the right thing by marrying Daniel.
He makes me feel secure."
