Why should the fact that Mr Right hasn’t bothered to show up stop you from having the wedding of your dreams?
Lynne Gollogy has “no interest” in being in a relationship, but has decided to defy tradition by getting married anyway- to herself.
The bride-to-be is going “all out”- she’s bought a flowing white dress, had make-up trials and plans to let her hair down at her very own Hen Do.
She’s even booked a romantic honeymoon to Rome, somewhere she’s always wanted to go.
While there will be no legal ceremony, the “big event” will take place in the form of a wedding party complete with disco, buffet and guests having a “general knees up”.
Lynne, of Thurcroft, said: “When I bought my dress at a Wed2B store, the staff were absolutely beside themselves when I told them I was actually planning to marry myself.
“My family and friends know full well that I’m bonkers though, so this hasn’t come as a shock to them.
“I’ve been single for a while now and have no interest in being in a relationship. I did get engaged once, when I was younger, but it was silly and nothing came of it.
“I thought this way I could give loved ones an opportunity to wear their wedding outfits and celebrate just being my quirky self.”
