A YOUNGSTER is celebrating after she was plucked from a host of entries to be named as the bridesmaid of the year in a national competition.

Freya Allum , from Ipswich, was bridesmaid at the wedding of her uncle Barnaby, which was held in Hadleigh on July 22.

And the four-year-old's beaming smile and beautiful dress were enough to ensure she saw off the competition in the Sylvanian Families Bridesmaid of the Year contest.

Proud mum Frith , who is set to give birth to her second child in the next few weeks, said: “Freya was the perfect bridesmaid - she led the bride into the service with big smiles and remembered to keep time.

“We chose Freya as our favourite because she was the perfect bridesmaid, looking beautiful in her outfit and getting everything right on the day and with the arrival of a new brother or sister soon this is to be her special time.”
