When Megan Kennedy and Thomas Cahoon got engaged, they got straight into planning a big wedding.

They sent out the invites, excitedly booked red buses to take their guests to the venue and Megan picked her bridesmaids. All ten of them.

But coronavirus meant they had to postpone the celebration – and eventually invited just 15 guests.

So Megan scrapped her original plans and had her two nans – aged 80 and 90 – as bridesmaids instead.

When she first asked them, they said it was "a bit stupid".

"They were like, 'we're too old to bridesmaids'", Megan told Radio 1 Newsbeat.

"They were flattered but they just thought it was ridiculous."
