Shotgun wedding


ARMED with a shotgun, Karen Shaughness­y made full use of February 29. On the day tradition says women can propose, the mum-of-two took Brendan Alton clay pigeon shooting.


Karen, 41, put her gun down before she popped the question. The electricia­n gave his answer by shooting out a “Yes” banner.

The Shropshire couple, right, met in October, and Karen said she “wasn’t going to wait another four years”. Brendan, 37, said he “was very emotional, very shocked”.

Proposal planners The One Romance devised the romantic stunt.
