We did everything ourselves, the flowers were all home grown, my bouquet full of wild fever-few and honeysuckle which grows in the garden. we made some of the food and asked our guests to bring a "pot-luck" dish of vegetarian food. I made the cake, fruit cake covered in royal icing and home-made marzipan fruits. We all did our own hair and make up. My dress was from Ebay and I made my garter, the groom bought his suit from a Calven Klien outlet, the best men wore their own clothes. We asked a few friends with good cameras to take the photos. We did the music ourselves, putting everything we liked on an Ipod and letting the guests pick songs like a jukebox. We danced under a canopy till the early hours, the night winded down with people singing and playing instruments.
Our wedding cost us £695. I still feel amazed we had such a beautiful day for so little money and everything was exactly as I wanted it to be.

My sister threw the bouquet in the river Wye, where we put our fathers ashes last year.
So happy with it all, I haven't stopped smiling since The Day!!
