A big day out
Most Emmerdale weddings take place in the village church, but Pete and Leyla’s big day was filmed at the lavish Oulton Hall Hotel just outside Leeds – and TV Times had a VIP invitation...
here comes the bride
roxy Shahidi looked stunning in Leyla’s wedding dress, from phase Eight. It was a far cry from what roxy wore for her own wedding to actor arsher ali. ‘I had a black lace dress, black stockings and black stilettos,’ she reveals. ‘I’m not really a flowers and sparkle girl.’
Quiet at the back!
Matthew Wolfenden’s character David married tracy last year, so he was happy to take a back seat. ‘When you’re not speaking much, the pressure’s off and you can have a laugh,’ he says.
anthony Quinlan (pete) poses for the camera with Michael parr and Joe Gill, who play his brothers ross and Finn. ‘We’ve gone for a nice little suit from ted Baker for pete,’ he revealed.
‘It beats his farming overalls, and it’s nice to see him scrubbed
up for a change.’
a change of scene
as Fiona Wade, aka priya, applies her lipstick, she tells us: ‘It’s nice to be out of the studio and see people you don’t usually work with. often you’re just waving at each other down the corridor.’
keeping it local
Michelle hardwick, who plays Vanessa, makes a call during a break between scenes. ‘I love this venue because it’s literally two minutes away from my house!’ she tells us.
