Cecilia Siaw was due to marry her German fiancé when she was arrested in the midst of her own wedding ceremony in Portsmouth, the UK.
Bride to be Cecilia Siaw was forced to pose for a police mugshot in her wedding dress after being arrested for immigration crimes
And now the 45-year-old has one of the most extraordinary photos as she had to pose for a mugshot in her wedding dress and best jewellery.
According to local media, the woman has lingered her stay in the country and bought a fake identity document to remain in the UK.
The bride-to-be has now been imprisoned for six months over immigration fraud offences. It’s unclear whether the woman will spend these months in British or her native jail.
Trying to defend his client the lawyer said: “At the time of her arrest Mrs Siaw and her husband were at Portsmouth Register Office for a ceremony to register their marriage in the UK.
She was arrested in her wedding dress immediately before the ceremony. This is a lady who on completion of her studies in 2011 genuinely has made a contribution to the UK.”
