A bride caused a stir among shoppers at a supermarket in Torfaen when she went shopping in her wedding dress.
Anna Savery enjoyed a meal with her husband James and guests at a Cwmbran restaurant after the ceremony but decided to carry on the celebrations at her mother's house.
But first she stopped off at a nearby Asda to pick up some essentials.
She was greeted by a flood of good wishes from customers astonished to spot her in the vegetable aisle.
Mrs Savery, 39, who married James Savery, 26, at Pontypool Register Office on Saturday said: "It was a very impromptu idea.
"That's when I decided to go to Asda, but it was shutting in 45 minutes so I didn't have time to go and change.
"But I have been in my pyjamas before, why not in my wedding dress?"
Mrs Savery, who dashed around the supermarket to buy alcohol with her new mother-in-law and sister-in-law, was overwhelmed by the reactions of staff and customers.
"People were smiling and asking for photos. It was surreal," said the mother-of-three.
"I felt like a celebrity. I had people saying I looked beautiful and one man said his daughter said I looked like a princess."
Among those to congratulate Mrs Savery was Cwmbran blogger Ben Black who captured her out shopping on video.
Afterwards, he wrote on his blog: "I'm smiling and have goose bumps as I type this blog."
"To Anna and James - have a fantastic night and wonderful future together. You put a grin on a lot of people's faces tonight," he added.
