All the fun of the fair for happy couple.

IT'S not every day you see a bride on a funfair ride.

Tula Smallman, 37, and Russell Coxon, 43, were hitched in a beach-themed wedding on Saturday, and took their guests to the funfair to celebrate.

The pair wanted a wedding that would be in keeping with their relationship.

Having met at Ynysawdre swimming pool, Bridgend, where Tula was learning how to swim because she wanted to compete in Ironman Wales, they decided to make it a beach-themed wedding.

And, as temperatures approached 30degC in Wales, where better to tie the knot than at Porthcawl beach? Tula and Russell have only officially been together for 13 months.

The bride said Russell always had feelings for her, but she didn't know in the early stages of their friendship - even though he would visit the pool when she was there just to be able to talk to her.

She said: "We were really good friends for two years. He helped to teach me how to swim."

Apart from the couple's great desire to celebrate on the funfair rides, they also had a few more tricks up their sleeves to entertain the guests.

With Tula's family being English, Tula arranged for a big screen to show the World Cup game against Sweden during the three-course meal at the reception.
