A bride almost had to get married in jeans after her wedding dress got lost at Edinburgh Airport. The Daily Record reports that bride Stephanie Caprez was at her wit’s end when her dress went missing in the baggage handling area. Her parents had been bringing the dress over from Thailand for her.
Luckily for Stephanie, kind Samaritan Graeme Reid spotted an abandoned package while he was waiting for his own lost luggage. Instead of ignoring it as millions might have, he took photos and emailed the hotel on the address label. The box turned out the be the bride’s missing dress, and the baggage firm were able to reunite it with its owners.
The wedding at the Royal Botanic Garden in Edinburgh was able to go ahead with the bride in a stunning A line dress with a delicate floral bodice and full tulle skirt. The kind actions of a stranger saved Stephanie from marrying groom Christopher Adams Pak in her jeans, which was the back-up plan if the dress failed to turn up.
Bride Stephanie, who lives in Swansea, said: “When my dad burst in to tell me that the dress had arrived, I was taking a nap as I was so tired from all the stress.”
She added: "I didn't think my dress would come at this point and it really was an amazing coincidence that Graeme saw it. I can’t thank him enough for what he’s done because it really was causing us so much grief in the days before the wedding.”
Stephanie’s wedding day must have felt all the more special and memorable when she walked down the aisle in her beautiful handmade dress.
