SOPRANOS star JAMIE-LYNN DiSCALA was left in agony the day after her summer (03) wedding because she insisted on wearing heels on her big day - despite an agonising ankle injury.

The brunette actress wed her manager AJ DiSCALA on 11 July (03) in New York, and her memories of her nuptials are literally filled with joy and pain.

She says, "Our wedding was amazing but I broke many rules in the bride handbook. A week before my wedding I was playing basketball with all my family, because everyone was in from out of town. It was such a happy time but I sprained my ankle!

"My mother was flipping out and I remember just being in the emergency room and saying, 'I don't care what I have to do, I don't care what you have to do, I have to wear my heels to my wedding,' because I loved my shoes.

"I had an athletic trainer come the morning of my wedding, wrap my ankle so tight I couldn't even feel it anymore, wore my four-and-a-half-inch VERA WANG shoes, walked down the aisle, danced all night, had a great and I paid for it the next day!"
