Bride waited until after wedding to run
An Italian bride went through with her wedding ceremony but ran off with the wedding car driver before the reception, her new husband said.
The husband, a 34-year-old man identified only as Andrea, said his bride Sara, 30, told their 30 wedding guests in Trieste that she wanted to change clothes after the ceremony but never arrived at the restaurant where the reception was held, the Italian news agency ANSA reported Wednesday.
Andrea said Sara drove off with a friend of his who was tasked with chauffeur duty. The husband said he and wedding guests called the pair on their cell phones when they failed to arrive at the reception and Sara told him she was
sorry and had
made a mistake. Andrea quoted Sara as telling him that her
heart belongs to someone else.
Sara and the driver left for Greece to carry out the married couple's planned honeymoon, Andrea said. He said he is considering legal action against his wife.
