Luisa Bradshaw-White 'so emotional' on wedding day

Luisa Bradshaw-White was "so emotional" on her wedding day.

The 'EastEnders' actress - who plays Tina Carter on the BBC One soap - recently tied the knot with her girlfriend of 15 years, Annette Yeo, and it meant a lot for the couple to walk down the aisle with their two daughters alongside them.

Luisa said: "The music started playing and everyone turned and looked at us and we were emotional straight away.

"There were so few people, 26 in total - just our absolute closest - and because of that it was so emotional.

"We walked down the aisle holding hands and our girls, who were our bridesmaids, walked behind us holding hands.

"To walk down the aisle with our girls was so beautiful.

"We've been saying for ages that we're getting married -as in all of us. The ceremony was all about how we declare our love for the girls. It was about the four of us, not just Nettie and I."

As a surprise for singer Annette, the couple's 12-year-old daughter sang a rendition of Nat King Cole's 'L-O-V-E' during the wedding.

Luisa said: "We both burst into tears while she was singing. In fact, everyone in the room was crying."

Annette added to OK! magazine: "She was so focused and sang it straight to us, it was beautiful. Luisa kept that as a surprise for me."

And the couple exited the registry office to a song they had recorded themselves.

Annette said: "It was a track on my album, 'For Once In My Life' that Lu and I had recorded together - a cover of the Stevie Wonder song. That was my indulgent part of the day."
