TO celebrate her marriage, a madcap Teignmouth bride plunged into the sea in her wedding dress.

Whacky Chloe Myers, née Mathers, decided it would be 'fun', and went down to the beach with friends and family for the fully clothed dip in the briny.

'It was very exhilarating, and I felt great doing it. It gave me a real high.

'We all had a real laugh on the beach, although a lot of onlookers must have thought it was all a bit odd,' said Chloe, 27, who works for a social enterprise company in Newton Abbot.
