Pulling off a beautiful wedding for under £3,000 is possible – just ask Cassie and Lee.

The pair, both aged 38, married at their rustic eclectic wedding on November 24, 2018 with 30 guests in the day and 60 in the evening.

“We had a small wedding in a rustic room in a village pub,” she says of their venue, Star and Garter, in Linlithgow. “We had a £3,000 budget and near enough managed to stick to it.”

The bride snapped up her stunning dress for £300, and she made most of the accessories and décor.

“My brooch bouquet incorporated special items that symbolise us and a brooch of my mum’s, and I used bead embroidery to make my wedding bracelet,” she explains.

Cassie’s daughter played the piano as her mum walked down the aisle, and all the children were part of the service with a unity candle lit. “I made us hand ties for the ceremony and we added charms to our own to represent each of us.”

The couple wanted the day to reflect them as a couple, rather than opt for a theme. “Lee is an OCD clean freak coin collector and I am a messy artist… total opposites,” smiles Cassie. “We had lucky penny favours and little ‘Drink Me’ bottles of moonshine.”

Cassie’s dress from Bijoux Bridal Boutique was originally four times the price she paid.

Lee wore traditional Scottish get up for the ceremony.

“I’d like to show that you don’t have to spend £10,000 to have everything you want on your wedding day,” says Cassie.
