On September 30, at Harvest House in Felixstowe, Suffolk, Sarah, a credit controller, organized a wedding ceremony officiated by a close friend. This decision, she stated, was a natural progression after she purchased an engagement ring for herself. Having saved a portion of her income each month and added any unexpected windfalls, Ms. Wilkinson spent £10,000 on the event.

During the ceremony, the bride was joined by 40 of her nearest and dearest family and friends, with an additional 40 people attending the evening festivities at the nearby tennis club. Sarah mentioned in an interview with BBC Radio Suffolk that her friends weren’t surprised when she revealed her plan to orchestrate her own wedding.

She said: “No-one stopped smiling all day and everyone said what an amazing time they had.

Nearly every single one said ‘that’s such a Sarah thing to do’.

Ms Wilkinson said she wrote 14 vows for her to honour, with the first being a promise never to relinquish control of the TV remote.

Her friend – professional wedding planner Katherine Cresswell – conducted the ceremony.

“As much as it was about Sarah, it was about bringing everyone together,” said Ms Cresswell.
