Shotgun wedding no drama for travelling jeweller
By DOMINIC FEAIN
A GUNSHOT wound won't stop Carolyn Daniell of Modanville continuing her European business trip.
According to husband Rhys Daniell the jewellery designer, wounded in a wedding prank gone terribly wrong last weekend in Italy, is recovering quickly and wants to finish the UK leg of a promotional trip.
The ordeal, reported exclusively in yesterday's Northern Star, began as a practical joke during the wedding of a well known couple from The Channon in the Italian town of Maniago at the weekend. Three guests pretended to object to the marriage and a fourth guest pretended to shoot them.
The 'shooter' somehow ended up with a real gun. The incident left four people hurt and two under arrest. Mrs Daniell received birdshot wounds to her abdomen and hand. Mr Daniell spoke to his wife yesterday and reports she is recovering quickly and in good spirits.
"Carolyn is complaining about the pellets coming to the surface which is a good sign," said Mr Daniell.
"She wants to finish the UK and Irish leg of her trip and will decide in the next few days ," he said.
"When I first got the news early Sunday morning I was in shock, thinking it was a terrorist attack, what with its proximity to places as unstable as Albania but now I can begin to see the humorous side of it."
The Star hasn't yet been able to make contact with the traumatised newly-wedded couple Daniella Ferrarin and Regis Roman D'Agostin, of The Channon.
