Bride Ties The Knot With 44 Bridesmaids, 12 Page Boys And 4 Ushers

A bride had her dream "big wedding" last weekend when she walked down the aisle with what could be the largest bridal train ever!

If there was a record for the "largest bridal train ever," this bride would surely be a winner.

Jayne Lawrence, 50, married her beau, Shaun, on Saturday, November 15, 2014, with her 44 closest friends as bridesmaids in attendance, as well as 12 page boys and 3 ushers.

Jayne who is from Halesowen in the West Midlands, walked down the aisle alongside three different guests and celebrated her big day with a total of 200 guests.

The delighted bride explains: "I come from a really big family and I had always wanted to get everyone involved in my wedding. It just so happens that now I’ve ended up with 44 wonderful women to help me!"

Jayne and Shaun have known each other since the age of 18 but did not become a couple until a chance meeting in a pub brought them back together 10 years ago.

The 53-year-old groom proposed to his now-wife on her birthday in May and when she said yes, asked that they marry on his birthday in November.

The bride's sister, Yvonne Hobbs, 71, was her maid of honour and walked Jayne down the aisle with her husband, Glyn and their brother, Stuart Blakeway, 48.

The other 43 bridesmaids were her nieces and great nieces as well as Mr Lawrence's nieces and some close family friends.

They were divided into teams and each group had a leader who arranged their shoes, accessories and matching dresses in varying shades of pink and purple.

She was even joined by 22 of her bridesmaids on her hen do - a night at a comedy club in Birmingham.

After marrying at St Paul's Church in Blackheath, where Mrs Hobbs married 51 years ago, the couple enjoyed a buffet and disco and are hoping to honeymoon in Mexico in the new year.

"It was the most perfect day - just lovely," Jayne said happily. "I come from a really big family, we very rarely get together.

"I'd always said that if I got married I wanted everyone in my family involved. Obviously I didn't think I'd get married at 50 but I wasn't going to change what I'd always said, and now, my family is even bigger so everyone got involved.

"After we got engaged I started contacting all my nieces, and their children, and my close family friends. Even people I had babysat for when I was 17 - they were there with their children.

"I'm one of nine, so my nieces are about the same age as me and we grew up together. Now they are all mums and grandmas too so everyone came along for the ride and I wouldn't have had it any other way."

A delighted Shaun added: "It was a great day and I was just happy to leave the organising up to my wife!"
