A couple proved a wedding does not need to cost a fortune after celebrating their nuptials for a quid.
Artist Georgina Porteous, 36, and singer-songwriter Sid Innes, 39, asked guests to bring food for their picnic reception in a barn behind their home and the minister offered his services for free.
Georgina’s aunt baked the three-tier wedding cake and her dad Harry played jazz on his sax for dance music.
They couldn’t avoid paying £70 for their licence but the only other expense was the bride’s £1 second-hand dress – a far cry from the average £20,000 wedding price tag.
She said: “I don’t see the point in these massive weddings. We didn’t want or need a big, fancy affair.
“We had a ball. The day went beautifully. People said it was the best wedding they have ever been to.”
The couple, of Inverness, plan to spend more on their honeymoon in Berlin, where they got engaged.
