Amelia and Brett had planned to get married in their hometown in Johannesburg, South Africa. But then Brett’s brother announced that he planned to get married in the same month.

Therefore, instead of spending money on one big ceremony, they had eight different weddings, in eight different countries.

Amelia says they ended up spending around £10,000 less ‘than an average wedding’.
