INVERNESS, Scotland, Sept. 4 (UPI) -- A Scottish couple said they spent only one pound, about $1.56, on their wedding, which involved a volunteer minister and a pot luck reception.

Georgina Porteous, 36, and Sid Innes, 39, of Inverness said the single pound they spent on Porteous' second-hand dress was the only money they spent on their recent wedding, The Mirror reported Wednesday.

The couple said they held the wedding on their property with a volunteer minister and guests were asked to bring food for a picnic reception in the barn behind their home. Porteous' aunt baked the three-tier wedding cake free of charge and her father, Harry, entertained the guests with his saxophone.

"I don't see the point in these massive weddings. We didn't want or need a big, fancy affair," Porteous said. "We had a ball. The day went beautifully. People said it was the best wedding they have ever been to."
