And there is little chance of the couple forgeting their wedding anniversary after the pair tied the knot at 12.12pm on 12/12/12.

Mr and Mrs Medlam, of Clowne, have also been together for 12 years - and after a ten year engagement wanted a once-in-a-lifetime wedding, on a date to remember.

Just to make their big day even more remarkable the couple had 12 bridesmaids, 12 groomsmen and even 12 cakes.

Their wedding also had a ‘12 days of Christmas’ theme.

Hairdresser Laura, 29, said: “We’ve been together 12 years this year and just felt the time was right for us.”

“Everyone thought it was a lovely idea and as we’ve been together so long friends and family said it was about time.”

The pair enjoyed a service at St John the Baptist Church, across the road from their home, followed by a reception at Hotel Van Dyk.
