Bromborough locals Victoria and Eric, both avid fans of the Twilight saga, relived their vampire Halloween wedding as they watched Bella and Edward tie the knot in the latest Breaking Dawn film.
Erik Downie, 36, a civil servant, and Victoria, 30, a biomedical scientist, not only married in black this past Halloween, they also wore specially made fangs.
Victoria commented “We’ve seen all the Twilight movies and really enjoyed Bella and Edward’s love story so it’s great they finally got married. People might think we’re weird having a vampire wedding but we both love vampires and think every-one should choose how they want to get married. It was our day and the memories will remain with us forever.”
The eccentric couple first met while working in a National Rail Enquiries call centre in 2000 and found out they shared a childhood love of vampire films.
Three years later, the pair got engaged and decided to marry after they moved into their first flat.
