Couple Have Cardboard Cut Outs Of Their Family And Friends For Wedding

Couple Have Cardboard Cut Outs Of Their Family And Friends For Wedding

A couple whose wedding was initially pushed back due to coronavirus tied the knot last month alongside 50 of their friends and family.

But their loved ones weren't there in person - they attended as life size cardboard cut outs instead.

Romanee and Sam Rondeau-Smith, from Bramley, Guildford, were due to get married in July, but due to coronavirus restrictions, they pushed their date back to 14th August.

However, with guest numbers still restricted to just 30, Romanee, 34 and Sam, 30 wanted to find a unique way to make sure all of their loved ones could be there on their special day.

So, they spent more than £2,000 on 48 cardboard cutouts of their guests and set them up at The Bell in Ticehurst, East Sussex.

From a cut out bridesmaid to friends holding up drinks and even canine guests, the pictures are hilarious - and something the couple will treasure forever.

Romanee, who owns a pub, said: "We had about 100 people on our guest list but when coronavirus hit, we had to rework our plans and the venue were really flexible.

"At the end of the day, we just want to get married so let's just go ahead - it helps that we're not high maintenance.

"One of my bridesmaids lives in Nashville and she wouldn't be able to attend so we joked about having her as a cardboard cut-out, so we thought why we don't do that with our guests.

"We got all of our guests to send us a picture of them and it went from there - the wedding planner loved it, she found it hilarious.

"it worked out at the same price as what it would have cost to have them all here but we saved on the booze! I'm sure there will be a massive party at some point - just somewhere low key.

"It was perfect. It was really relaxed. We weren't disappointed at all. Just being simple and having our immediate family there was perfect".

Congratulations to the happy couple (Credit: Hawaiian Shirt Photography)
