Swindon gym owners help manager have a day to remembers
Pink Gym owners Karen Hewitt-Boorman and Liz Sipson turned fairy godmother to give gym manager, Nikki, a fairytale wedding, pictured right.
When they heard that she had bought her dress for £20 from eBay because she was on a very tight budget, Karen and Liz decided to step in. Realising that she was unhappy with her outfit, they arranged to meet her at a wedding dress shop in Trowbridgge.
Liz said, "they asked me which dress I'd love more than anything and I pointed to one on a poster. They went and got it and said it was mine. I felt like a celebrity. "
The surprises didn't end there, as the pair insisted on Nikki trying on jewellery, shoes and a head dress in the store owned by Karen's mum. With her outfit complete, she was whisked downstairs to a jewellery shop owned by Liz's husband to choose two fabulous rings.
Nikki has worked at the Pink Gym since it opened in January and says that the members and her colleagues feel like her extended family. Gym members organised her hen night and were at the Wroughton parish church to see her on the big day.
The newly- wed Mrs Davis and her husband Johnathan, right, spent the first night of the honeymoon at the Purton House Hotel thanks to Liz and Karen.
"There was no limit to their generosity," said Nikki. "I feel on top of the world. I can't believe two people who I didn't know a year ago have done so much."
