Here’s something you don’t see every day in Asda – a bridesmaid doing her “big shop”!

Bridesmaid in Asda Keighley

Jenna Greenwood carried out her bridesmaid duties for her friend Kelly Allan who married Kenny Hirata in a ceremony at East Riddlesden Hall in Keighley, West Yorkshire, on Sunday morning.

The wedding was over by 11 am and Jenna and partner Gary had two hours to spare before the afternoon reception in Saltaire so they fitted in a quick trip to Asda in Keighley for their weekly shop!

“We usually do a big shop at the weekend together,” said Jenna. "I was out on the Saturday so we had to do it on the Sunday. I was going to get changed first but my friend’s aunty joked I should go in my bridesmaid dress.

“I’m never one to back down from a challenge – I took the photo to prove that I did it!”

Asda customer Hollie shared this photo on her Instagram account Flopsie and Woody (named after two rabbits!) saying she “couldn’t resist this cushion”.

George Home designer Tascha Brook said the Hibernate trend follows on from the popular Meadow nature trend for spring/summer: “It is inspired by nature in autumn, animals wanting to snuggle and be cosy.”

This dinosaur “fossil” spotted at the beach at Skegness was made by Emily Leary and her children Jay and JD, aged three and seven.

Emily, who blogs at, shared this fab photo on Twitter of the finished result.

You can make your own using one of our Dino Sand Moulds kits from George Home – available in Asda stores while stocks last.

Emily, who bought hers from Asda Lincoln, said: "We’d stopped off for picnic supplies and this set caught my eye.

“I helped the kids make it – my daughter Jay took charge. It’s very easy to use. We dug into the sand a bit to get to the wetter stuff as it holds together better, then just made the dinosaur in minutes.

“The kids loved it but I think I was most excited about the results!”

She said: “We’re trying to fit in lots of family adventures during the summer holidays and a beach trip was high on the list.”
