A woman has married a life-size, cardboard cut out of Twilight vampire Edward Cullen.

Lauren Adkins, 25, wed the flat pack image of Ed, played by Robert Pattinson in the movies, in Las Vegas, according to the Daily Mirror.

The newspaper reported her as saying: "People might think I'm crazy but my flat-pack R-Patz is the closest I'll get to the real thing and he's the one for me."

Lauren, who is from Las Vegas, said that from the minute she saw the actor on-screen she was in love.

She said: "A friend who thought I was going mad said one night: 'If you love him so much why don't you marry him?' Her words rang in my ears. She was right. Why didn't I?"

The Viva Las Vegas Wedding Chapel on the Vegas strip agreed to carry out the service for "Edward Cullen".

Lauren said: "I walked down the aisle ... in the white wedding dress I've always dreamt of."

She added: "The day cost £2,000 but I didn't care - I wanted to do it properly.

"We had our honeymoon in LA and I wanted us to climb up to the Hollywood sign together.

"I had to carry him... b ut everyone makes sacrifices for the man they love, right?"
