Coronation Street star Debbie Rush was beaming with pride as she watched her daughter Poppy marry her sweetheart at a star-studded ceremony in Cheshire.
Poppy, also an actress, was joined by family, friends and a host of Corrie stars as she tied the knot with her fiance Ryan Whittle at a ceremony at St Peter’s Church in Prestbury.
Radiant Poppy looked stunning in a fairytale wedding gown with sparkling bodice detailing as she was given away by proud dad Andrew.
nd mum Debbie kept with the bridal theme for the occasion, wearing a full length fitted white dress.
Mum and daughter are so close that they call each other best friends, and Debbie told the M.E.N. last year how emotional wedding dress shopping with Poppy had been making her.
Mum-of-three Debbie said at the time: “I wasn’t expecting to get emotional, but when I saw Poppy in a wedding dress I don’t know what came over me, I felt all a bit teary. I suppose it made me realise she’s actually getting married. I adore Ryan, and I’m so happy for both of them, but it got me a bit emotional.
“I’ll need to prepare myself for empty nest syndrome before I know it!”
Debbie, who plays Corrie matriarch Anna Windass, was joined by her on-screen family – including soap son Mikey North and his wife Rachael and her soap ex Ian Puleston-Davies at the wedding celebration.
Corrie’s Catherine Tyldesley wore a full length pastel pink ballgown while Jack P Shepherd’s wife Lauren was one of the bridesmaids at the wedding in a pretty golden gown.
Soap favourites including Jennie McAlpine with husband Chris and Sally Dynevor with husband Tim also joined the revels, as well as Hollyoaks star Ross Adams.
Emmerdale couple Charley Webb and Matthew Wolfenden were also among the wedding party alongside Corrie’s producer Kate Oates.
Debbie last month celebrated her 28th wedding anniversary with husband Andrew, posting an adorable tweet of the couple kissing on a beach.
To celebrate their silver wedding anniversary in 2014 they held a wedding renewal ceremony in Bury, attended by all of their Corrie star friends and family.
The couple are parents to two sons, Will Rush who starred in Waterloo Road and eldest child Tom Rush, who is a musician, as well as Poppy.
