A couple who were “gutted” to have their dream Cornwall wedding cancelled have held a specially themed celebration at their home in Wales.

Gaynor Pinnell and Andy Rice ordered local pasties, cream teas, fudge and cider and exchanged rings in front of a giant Cornish flag to mark the day.

They were supposed to have said their vows in front of 80 guests in Newquay.

The couple, who live in Newport, south Wales, were thanked by a local town councillor for staying away.

Gaynor, 48, who lives in Newport, south Wales, said they had to postpone their wedding which was due to be held on Thursday last week.

“We were gutted because everything was going so smoothly,” she said.

“Cornwall is our special place. We love the views, the people, the food, so it was a natural choice to get married there.

“We wanted to make the day special for us in my household. I thought a Cornish day would be amazing.

“I think we made a good day out of a bad situation.”
