The average price of wedding is now an eye-watering £27,000, but one thrifty bride managed to cut costs right down – spending just £1,000 on her big day.
Emilyrose Fitzpatrick, 29, from Glasgow, looked every inch the beautiful bride as she tied the knot with husband Rory in a romantic ceremony, followed by a big reception attended by 100 family and friends.
Incredibly, she managed to keep to a tiny budget, spending just £60 on her dress from ASOS, £50 on flowers and £200 on a photographer, while she saved on pampering by getting friends to do her hair and make-up.
The reception at a local pub was the biggest expenditure, costing £590 – but this included hiring the function room, as well as food and entertainment.
The only other costs were the £30 wedding cake and their rings, which they bought for £70.
