Couples strive to marry on the perfect 10

It’s every couple’s wish to have the wedding day of their dreams and if their day were to be scored all couples would strive for the perfect 10.

There is a lot that needs to be considered for those wanting top marks from guests for having the perfect wedding, the dress, the actual ceremony and of course the wedding reception venue are just a few of the would be contributers. But wouldn’t it be ideal if you could have the perfect date, which is what some couples are striving to do.

Couples all over Britain are rushing to tie the knot this Sunday on the 10th of the 10th of the 10th. The infamous Gretna Green is holding 38 wedding ceremonies compared to the average for a typical Sunday in October.

A Gretna Green Registration office spokesman told The Sun: “It’s highly unusual. On a normal Sunday at this time of year we would be lucky to have 10 weddings.”

Les Payne 56 and his fiancée Amanda Butterly 50, are one couple that plan to say “I do” on this date.

“Someone suggested 10-10-10. We didn’t think we’d get that date but we found out the register office would open that Sunday for the first time as it is a memorable date,” he told The Mirror.
