A wedding makeup artist has claimed one of her brides almost called off her wedding after discovering her groom being breastfed by his mother.
In the latest episode of the Unfiltered Bride podcast, host Georgie Mitchell – who is a professional UK wedding planner – explained how she had been told the story by someone she had previously worked with.
Referring to the makeup artist by the fake name ‘Jenny’, Georgie relayed how she had just finished the bride’s face and hair when she said she needed to go to use the restroom.
George said: ‘[The bride] walked into the toilet and what she saw is enough to end a wedding.’
At first, Georgie’s co-host Beth – who runs the business Etiquette Events Styling – assumed that the groom was cheating on his bride with another woman.
After being told to try again, Beth then questioned if he was taking drugs in the lead-up to the ceremony.
Insisting that it was ‘much worse’, Georgie then replied: ‘He was being breastfed by his mum.’
Beth then replied: ‘Sorry, WHAT? Why would you marry a man [who still breastfeeds]?’
Jumping to the bride’s defence, Georgie added: ‘I don’t think she knew that was what was happening!’
Unable to contain her contain her giggles, Beth said: ‘Why was his mum producing milk?’
‘She’s obviously been doing it continuously to get to that point,’ Georgie added.
Despite the bride’s obvious shock, the planner claims she still went ahead with the wedding.
She said: ‘Everybody is in the room waiting! But you definitely wouldn’t kiss the groom…’
Last week, Georgie and Beth shared a video of them discussing the wedding horror story on their podcast’s TikTok account – where it has amassed over 730,000 views.
One horrified follower replied: ‘Took “mummy’s boy” to a whole new level.’
Another added: ‘The strongest man couldn’t lift my jaw right now!’
Meanwhile, a third said: ‘Omg I didn’t know what to expect but that was not even a fleeting thought!!’
A fourth stunned viewer chimed in and wrote: ‘The way I was like “nothing could worse than him cheating…” Yup that’s worse. I’d be a runaway bride so damn fast.’
Last month, Georgie debunked a controversial list of 2023’s wedding trends – from walking down the aisle solo to having no bridesmaids.
