Wife finds out her husband has married a fella from their wedding snaps
A woman found out that her husband had also married a bloke after seeing their wedding photos.
Marcus Wild, an NHS worker from Sneinton, Nottingham, was still married to wife Susan when he wed a man at Nottingham's Council House.
Nottingham Crown Court heard on Tuesday (August 15) Wild, 53, was previously called Colin Parsons but changed his name by deed poll.

He was split from but not divorced from Susan, who had previously suspected the bigamist was gay and challenged him about it. The court heard this was not "well received", reports NottinghamshireLive.
Wild later did confirm he was gay before leaving the marital home and changing his name.
He declared himself "single" as he married his new partner, despite being told by the registrar he may have committed an offence if the information was false.
The court heard he was not single – but in fact still married to his wife. Following the wedding to his new partner, his estranged wife saw his wedding photos on social media.
He used his new name and referred to himself as "divorced". It emerged she had attempted to contact Wild for a "quickie divorce" – but had not heard anything back.
She kept the same name, same email address and was in the same property, the court was told. They never divorced and she was left "tied to him", which she did not want.
Wild claimed he was never asked about a previous marriage or previous names, but the court heard it was a thorough process during which people are asked such questions several times.
Wild has had the court case hanging over him for 18 months. He is now legally divorced and remains in a flourishing relationship with his husband.
Judge Nirmal Shant KC said Wild was married in 2003 to his wife – and it was plain from her statement the relationship went downhill in 2016.
Judge Shant told him: "She long suspected something about your sexuality.
"She believed the marriage to be over.
"Despite various occasions where she challenged you about it, you at first denied it." He left the marital home in 2016 and by November 2020 he declared himself single.
The judge said Wild is now divorced and has embarked on a proper relationship with his husband. For the offence of bigamy, which he admitted previously, she imposed three months in prison suspended for two years.
