Bride Defends Decision To Strap Newborn To Train Of Wedding Dress, A NEW mum has defended her decision to strap her month-old baby on to her wedding train, saying Jesus backed the move.

The bride’s trip down the aisle created buzz online. And while reactions have ranged from stunned to appalled, the bizarre stunt has left most with just one word on their lips — why?

Shona Carter-Brooks, from near Nashville, Tennessee, was accused by some social commentators of endangering the welfare of baby girl, Aubrey, after pictures showed the little one being dragged along the floor of the Elam Baptist Church in Ripley for the May 12 nuptials.

Mail Online reported critics calling the act “classless” and “incredibly dangerous”.

“That is truly dumb,” added someone on the website Clutch.

Mrs Carter-Brooks, who was wed to Johnathan Brooks, defended her actions in a couple of curious Facebook posts.

Wedding trip… Baby girl Aubrey was tied onto her mum’s train.  

“People questioning what we do, commenting all negative, and just doing the most,” she wrote.

“We good though we covered by the Blood which never loose (sic) its power.

“So to the media, radio, news, and whomever else wanting to talk about what WE do here you go:

“Media Media I see how it works regardless the situation or purpose people gone (sic) have something negative to say!

“The answer is we do what we want, when we want, as long as Jesus on our side everything worked out fine and gona (sic) continue to be fine.”

Love fools… Shona and Johnathan have no regrets over the bizarre stunt. 

In the second post Mrs Carter-Brooks went on the attack against the haters again, this time insisting the baby was safe throughout her trip down the aisle.

“Our 1 month old was awake and well secured on my train,” Mrs Carter-Brooks wrote.

“Most important while yall got ya feelings in us we had our hearts in Christ which covers all!!

“So keep ya mouths running for it was just that Exclusive and Epic enough we made top blog (sic) way from small town Ripley, TN and the social media doing what they do, TALK!!!!”

Mrs Carter-Brooks ended the post with the farewell – “Sign off Mr & Mrs Brooks!!”
