NSW bride shares iconic wedding photo after helicopter flood rescue
A NSW bride who sent out a plea for help when she became trapped by rising floodwaters on her wedding day has shared an iconic photo from her big day.
In keeping with tradition, Kate Fotheringham and Wayne Bell spent the night before their wedding apart.
But when the pregnant bride-to-be woke up at her parent’s property just inland from Taree – Ms Fotheringham realised she was surrounded by flood waters.
“Beautiful, just not on your wedding day,” she said.
With no way to get to her venue at the local showgrounds in Wingham, she made a plea for help on social media.
Affinity Helicopters answered the call and arrived at the property to chopper her out.
Minutes later the bride-to-be was across the swollen creek and ready to wed.
