Her injury required surgery, leaving a 5-inch scar and pain with the three screws used to reattach the tendon.

She sued a pub operator owned and operated by the groom’s family, Chris Richardson.

Currently, the judge has awarded her £ 31,871 and told the pub operator to pay the attorney’s fees of about £ 50,000.

Anthony was injured while slipping in a puddle at Whitehorse in Welwyn, Hertfordshire.

The spill was from a water dispenser without a drip tray.

Anthony, a Plymouth council worker, said:

“I felt something crackling.”

“The venue operator’s cellar door pub denied responsibility, but his boss did not attend a hearing in a county court in central London.

The judge dismissed allegations that Anthony might have been drunk or saw something spilled.

I got a Botox lip flip two weeks before the wedding. I didn’t want to pay for the filler … my mouth was numb and I couldn’t even drink.
