Today I’ve got a really great treat for you.  Remember our GU Soulmates, Tamsin and Jim?  Well they went and got married near Glastonbury last September and theirs was a very relaxed festival style DIY wedding in a field.  According to Tamsin, it was the best day of her life!

No!  I still can’t quite get my head around it either, but they did. We've already given you a taste of how they managed such a budget concious wedding that looks so amazing.  But today we wanted to tell you all about the actual wedding day and the best person to tell you more about it, is Tamsin herself.  Over to you Tamsin …
