A newlywed looks almost unrecognisable after she shed more than five stone for her wedding

Danielle French, 28, said she could ‘barely fit into any of her clothes’. The mortgage advisor from Barnsley feared that she would be a ‘big bride’ and was wearing size 16-18 clothes, but eventually walked down the aisle a size six after slimming down to eight stone.
She said: ‘After getting engaged I continued to put on lots of weight until March 2015 when I got to my biggest and could barely fit in any of my clothes. I really didn’t want to be a big bride.’
After the bride and groom-to-be booked their wedding for November 2016, Danielle joined Slimming World and also began to follow inspirational Instagram weight loss pages to ditch the pounds.

It took Danielle a year to get to her goal weight. She said: ‘Losing the weight has changed my life in so many more ways than I could have ever imagined. Before losing the weight I hated going out with my friends because I felt so self-conscious and awful in everything I wore.’

‘I was also really unfit and got out of breath really easily whenever I walked more than half a mile. I suffer from IBS and since losing the weight and eating a much healthier balanced diet means I hardly ever get symptoms.’
She said all of her friends and family have been amazed by her transformation. Danielle said: ‘They are all really proud of me and can’t believe how much weight I have lost and how different I look now.’
