A thrifty groom in the UK managed to pull off his fiancée’s dream wedding by having guests pay for the venue.

33-year-old Ben Farina and his bride-to-be Claire Moran, 37 thought they would never be able to afford a wedding. The couple, who are parents to two girls, didn't want to blow out money for one day, when they have their family's needs to think about, according t a report by The Sun.

 

However, Farina didn't let that stop him and managed to plan and awesome wedding on £2,000 budget. Second hand paper flowers were used for decorating the reception, a local busker off the street will perform the music and Ben's suit was bought for £50 suit.

A family member will be making the canapés for £30 and has agreed to pay for it. For the bride and her bridesmaids’ make-up, their teenage daughter will be taking care of it for free. The pair even managed to snag a countryside retreat The Knockerdown Farm in Gainsborough, Lincs, at a discounted price of £10,000 and didn't have to pay a penny.

 

"It might sound stingy but as a guest myself at other weddings I’ve had to fork out more than that for hotels," Ben told The Sun.  Adding, "The way I see it is they’re getting a weekend away, which is basically a holiday, and we get a free wedding. It works for everyone." Wedding guests will be forking £150 each to stay there and while children will be charged £50.

For the music, his iPod will be doing all the work and they dance the night away. "We’re not looking for a really extravagant day. What matters to us is that we’ll be married and are able to celebrate our day with our friends and family," the excited groom told The Sun.
