Charles Bronson's bride Paula Williamson arrives at jail under purple cloak ahead of wedding

She was once an extra in Coronation Street but Paula Williamson will be the leading lady today when she marries Charles Bronson.

Dubbed Britain’s most notorious prisoner, the 64-year-old inmate will tie the knot with the 37-year-old actress at Wakefield jail.

She was spotted arriving at the prison under a purple cloak earlier today ahead of the couple’s nuptials before being ushered in by friends and family.

Pal Timothy Crowley – who was dressed up as Bronson – drove Paula to the prison in a Mercedes which had a banner with the words “Just Married” attached to the boot.

Bronson is expected to be handcuffed to a warder throughout the ceremony and he won’t be allowed to consummate his marriage because he will be led back to his cell after tying the knot to Paula, according to The Sun.

She will then head to a nearby hotel to party with her pals and family – but no Bronson.

Despite her new husband – who now goes by the name Charles Salvador – being in prison, Paula won’t miss out on a honeymoon as she is expected to spend post-wedded bliss in Malta, albeit alone.

A friend was spotted delivering Bronson’s suit ready for the big day in a cotton bag.

It is thought Bronson’s wedding attire will be the first non prison-issued clothes he’s worn in 25 years.

Charles Bronson has been in prison since 1974

Just five guests are expected to witness the pair’s nuptials.

While it is not known when Bronson might be released from jail, Paula recently admitted the couple haven’t had a “physical relationship” yet.

Speaking on LBC, she said: “We haven’t had a physical relationship as conjugal visits aren’t allowed in Britain – we would love it, but it won’t happen.

“It’s not ideal, you expect it (a physical relationship) when you get married, but I’m willing to wait.”

Bronson has been in prison since 1974, serving life for robbery and kidnap.

He was given a life sentence in 1999 after taking prison art teacher Phil Danielson hostage at HMP Hull when he criticised one of his drawings.
