A woman who has waited five years to get married has described her disbelief that her big day was somewhat derailed by the Beast from the East.

Jodi Goldsmith, formerly Lupton, said she “can’t believe that of all the days, this is the one we chose.”

Mrs Goldsmith, 42, married the father of her two children, Dan Goldsmith, at Norwich Castle on Friday, March 2.

The nurse said: “It’s not a very big wedding, but thankfully both our parents made it. Dan’s parents drove in from Swaffham and my mum came from west Norfolk on the bus.”

The couple are hoping to celebrate with 100 of their friends and family in Poringland the following day.

Mrs Goldsmith said: “Poringland has been one of the worst areas hit by the snow and we know that some people just won’t make it. We’ve got people coming up from Kent so I don’t think we’ll see everyone.

“We’re holding out hope it may suddenly thaw and people can get to us but that might be optimistic!”

The mum to Connie, 3, and Bella, 1, added: “Dan was supposed to go and stay with his parents last night but couldn’t, so I hope that’s not bad luck for us! Fingers crossed the weather today will mean we have no bad luck for the rest of our marriage!”

Mrs Goldsmith, who lives in Poringland with her electrician husband, continued: “I’m obviously so excited but it’s been a lot more stressful than we’d hoped!

“I thought I might have to incorporate my bit of something blue in the form of my blue wellies- but I left them in the car!”

Mrs Goldsmith added: “We decided to get married today because we’ve been together for five years and this is a bit of an anniversary for us, I just can’t believe this is the day of all days!”

Mrs Goldsmiths’ bridesmaids were her daughters. She added: “The girls don’t really understand what’s going on and just want to go out and play with their friends!”
