'Bridezilla' Scales 6-foot Fence in Wedding Dress for Photos

A bride who scaled a six-foot metal fence in her wedding dress in order to take photos next to a toxic lake has been shamed by police for ignoring the safety barrier.

The newlywed and her groom reportedly climbed the fence with their wedding party in tow for a picture by the shoreline in South Derbyshire, England.

In order to take the picture-perfect snaps, the bride mounted the newly-constructed fence which had been erected along the water's edge to stop people swimming in the dangerous waters.

The pair, dubbed a "groomzilla and bridezilla," were caught by police who publicly shamed the couple over their Melbourne Police SNT Facebook page.

"To the bride who scaled a 6-foot metal fence in a wedding dress with her groom in toe for a photography session on the reservoir's shoreline – what were you thinking?" the force wrote in a post on Wednesday. "With no respect for the newly-constructed safety barriers, these newlyweds, along with a professional photographer, clambered over a restricted enclosure and descended to a sandy area to pose for some matrimonial snaps."

Officers reiterated: "For the avoidance of doubt, Foremark Water is not the set of a Maldives wedding backdrop – it is a working reservoir and the barriers are there for a reason."

The area has recently been furnished with signs to deter people from accessing or swimming in the reservoir, a site police say is home to "very cold, deep, algae-infested" and "toxic waters."

Rangers have reported a recent slew of people ignoring signs to swim in the dangerous waters during the hot weather, Staffordshire Live reported. Police have been called to the area to help clear people out and shut the attraction due to safety fears.

One recent incident involved a drunk man who went for a dip in the water, prompting a major search operation involving a police helicopter, according to the publication. Worried bystanders reportedly called police when the man did not emerge from the water.

Police said they will be conducting increased patrols in the area in order to deter any unsafe behavior.

Another bride had a run-in with police this month when officers gave the stranded woman her a ride to the altar.

Lydia Evans-Hughes became stuck on the side of a busy road when her vintage car broke down on September 3.

The 29-year-old in her wedding gown cut a striking sight on the side of the road with her parents, Yvette and Alan Fletcher, as they cursed the car which in her words had "given up the ghost," after only five miles.

Police Inspector Matt Geddes of North Wales Police pulled over when he saw them on the A55 road near Chester, northwest England, and offered to get her to the church on time.

Lydia Evans-Hughes made a slightly more dramatic bridal entrance than expected as the bridal party arrived at St. Mary's Church in the town of Eccleston, in a police car with its blue lights flashing, to the surprise of the guests, and her husband-to-be, Tidur Evans-Hughes, 31.
