A bride who spent her wedding night in jail after she attacked her mum with a stiletto is now living apart from her new husband, it has been reported.

Claire Goodbrand, 26, pleaded guilty to assault after the wedding night fight in June 2019, which also involved her new husband, Eamonn Goodbrand, and Goodman’s brother, who was best man.

It has now been reported that, despite marrying and Claire taking her husband’s name, the couple are now living separately from each other in different homes in Glasgow, although it is understood they still see each other, according to Mail Online.

The disastrous end to their wedding three years ago happened after hours of heavy drinking, leading to a fight breaking out, the Mirror reported yesterday.

Claire, a mother to four children, grabbed her own mum, Cherry-Ann Lindsay, 47, by the hair before hitting her with a stiletto. She also put her hands around her mum’s throat.

Ms Lindsay told the Mail: “She then grabbed me and put me in a choke hold. I couldn’t breathe. I thought I was going to die.”

Neighbors told how the married couple are living apart in the Scottish city.

A neighbor said: “They don’t live together no. They’re at separate addresses a few miles apart and have been for a while. But they do still visit each other so it’s not clear what the state of the relationship is.”

Claire attacked her mum and her mum’s partner 40-year-old David Boyd, at which time Eamonn, a former professional boxer, and his brother Kieran joined in.

David was punched, kicked, bitten and grabbed at the neck by the two brothers. They also pushed their thumbs into his eyes.

Kieran Goodbrand also punched and kicked Garry Brown, another guest at the wedding.

Wedding day photos show the newly married couple beaming with happiness on the dance floor and standing for photos by water.

Police were called to wedding venue The Vu at Ballencrieff Toll, Bathgate, in West Lothian after the fight, which spilled onto the lawn, was reportedly caught on CCTV. The bride, groom and best man were all arrested and held in custody that night.

The couple plus their best man, who are all from Uddingston in Lanarkshire, pleaded guilty to assault and injury charges at Livingston Sheriff Court this week.

Claire Goodbrand pleaded guilty on an indictment to assault to injury but not guilty to a more serious assault to severe injury.

She repeatedly admitted seizing her mother by the hair, punching and kicking her on the head and body, causing her to fall to the ground, before striking her head at The Vue wedding venue at Ballencrieff Toll in West Lothian’s Bathgate Hills.

She also admitted punching and kicking her mum Cherry-Ann to the head and body whilst she was on the ground, striking her on the head with a shoe and seizing her by the neck and restricting her breathing.

Eamonn and Kieran both pleaded guilty to repeatedly punching and kicking David Boyd on the head and body while acting together.

The charge states that they caused him to fall to the ground and continued their violent attack as he lay there.

They admitted pushing their thumbs into Mr Boyd’s eyes, biting him on the head and body and repeatedly seizing him by the neck and restricting his breathing, all to his severe injury.

In addition, Kieran Goodbrand admitted assaulting Garry Brown by punching and kicking him on the head and body to his injury at the reception on June 24, 2019.

A fourth member of the family, 37-year-old Brendan Goodbrand, had his not guilty pleas to two assault charges accepted by the Crown after his alibi that he had left the venue before trouble broke out turned out to be true.

Sheriff Martin Edington called for criminal justice social work reports on all three accused before passing sentence.

I have adjourned the case until 29 April for information on possible disposals, including social work supervision, unpaid hours of work and restriction of liberty by electronic curfew.

Eamonn Goodbrand’s Facebook page reveals that he works as a professional fighter, boxing competitively as a light middleweight.

It was reported after the wedding reception that one of the alleged victims lost part of a finger during the attack.

The prosecution will narrate the full circumstances when the case calls for sentence.

Ms Lindsay said, to her, the wedding day felt like a “sick joke.” She said her daughter de ella was swearing “like a banshee” and the boys were “drinking beer and falling over each other.”

She said she began to sense “trouble brewing” but didn’t expect it to escalate so much.

The 47-year-old said she has moved away to an undisclosed address and does not want to see them anymore.
