I am a happily married male in my 40s but I want to get married. No, I'm no weird...okay I am, but this post is epic.
The only people who love the institution of marriage more than the church are the divorce lawyers. Save more money by not doing it. If she loves you, she loves you... and unless she's wealthier than you it's just another unnecessary risk.
Heat for effort
Great thread anyone looking for a wedding photographer pm me
I got married at pernera blue waters. Venue plus licences 300 quid I think ? That was for beach venue, registering the wedding and having someone take the ceremony and another person doing your choice of music. Stayed 2 weeks all Inc at a hotel 5 minutes walk away and reception at blue spice which was 5 minutes beach walk away from wedding venue. Oct 27th. It was 30c all 2 weeks we sea breeze. Wife's dress was 30 quid from eBay Chinese seller in the style she wanted and then a seamstress locally fitted it exactly how she wanted for a further 40 quid. Photographer was the most expensive thing at 400 quid. We paid a total for 4 kids and us for 2 weeks all Inc and the wedding (and all the clothes and other bits) £4k Friends and family had a year to save up if they wanted to come. Couldn't have wished for a better time and perfect wedding weather. UK wedding would have cost at the very least 10k for what we had.
