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!  

The thing that amazes me is that Tamsin and Jim managed to throw an incredibly all inclusive festival style wedding with 11 bridesmaids, 5 flower girls, 9 groomsmen and 173 guests on a very lean budget of only £3,000 … could you do that?

Their friends freely offered  help with everything and obviously this spirit of giving meant the couple saved heaps of money, but Tamsin worked hard to keep the budget in check too.  Read on to get Tamsin’s Top Money Saving and Eco Tips ...
