That's it really. We're running away and getting married by ourselves with the DC (you can't really call it eloping when it's Wakefield wink) tomorrow afternoon.

We were going to accost people in the street and still will if this doesn't work but thought we'd give it a shot here.

We can offer you a free glass of bubbly in return grin

clarabella23 Tue 29-Jun-10 17:07:39

I'm not in wakefield, but wanted to say good luck and I hope you have a fab day!

Think thats such a lovely idea - actually made me cry. Good luck with your day and married life

Sorry buzzing - too late, but thanks.

Not asking anyone we know; it'll all get back to family and make life more complicated than need be!

And I suspect the danger of choosing weirdos in Wakey bus station is just as great as finding them on here!

Wish i lived in Wakefield....have a fantastic day.

You might get volunteers! My parents got married in a whopping great church but only had around 10 guests, so some little old ladies wandered in off the street to see what was going on. The same could happen if you're dressed for a wedding!

GloriaSmut Tue 29-Jun-10 17:14:27

I never honestly thought I'd be saying this but I wish I lived in Wakefield! Good luck tomorrow and, as my FIL used to say "May the Mice never leave your cupboards hungry"!

FreakoidOrganisoid Tue 29-Jun-10 17:14:58

Nowhere near but congratulations!

RunforFun Tue 29-Jun-10 17:15:28

I'd love to do it...

But unfortunately I'm not in Wakefield or anywhere remotely near.

Have a lovely day x

That's a shame, but have a great time anyway!
How about asking in the army recruitment place (over the road from the registry office) and getting some men in uniform?

littleoldme Tue 29-Jun-10 17:17:33

I would if I wasn't stacked up with work. Hope you have a fab time and hearty congratulations.

SagacityNell Tue 29-Jun-10 17:17:42

If you can pay for my train ticket from manchester i will come and take pics for you too. (i am ok but not a pro)

AlCrowley Tue 29-Jun-10 17:18:17

Try the local page maybe?

Good luck. DH and I will be celebrating 5 years soon. Being married is great

robino Tue 29-Jun-10 19:26:05

Thanks for all the good wishes.

SagacityNell - thanks for the kind offer but you'd practically double the cost of the wedding wink!

BuzzingNoise Tue 29-Jun-10 19:44:27

You could try NetMums?

nymphadora Tue 29-Jun-10 19:56:32

OrmRenewed Tue 29-Jun-10 19:57:46

SagacityNell Tue 29-Jun-10 20:00:14

Good luck congratulations and have a good day xx
