A BLUSHING bride was given away by Port Vale mascot Boomer the Dog.
As a way of showing her love for the groom, football fan Dave Walker, bride-to-be Nicola Williamson was given away at a wedding ceremony at Hanley Town Hall by the massive mascot.
And Port Vale fan Dave was delighted with her caninine companion surprise. He said: “I wasn’t expecting that and to say I was shocked would be an understatement.
“I go to as many Vale games as my job allows me and I always have a laugh watching Boomer messing about with the fans.
“It will be strange to see him at the Vale in the future now that he’s walked my wife down the aisle.”
