Marriage: 11th time lucky for Britain's unluckiest bride

| No TrackBacks

A Bournemouth woman has finally tied the knot after 10 unsuccessful wedding attempts in the past three years.

Nicky Pretty finally married Trevor in Edinburgh in December 2010.

The couple have suffered a number of setbacks that included:

  • Cancelling their Cyprus wedding in 2008 after family pulled out
  • Not going ahead with a wedding in Dorset as the price was too high per guest
  • Missing out on a home wedding after neighbours complained the noise would be too loud
  • Cancelling an expensive wedding in Fiji after the couple feared no family members would attend


The Prettys got married in the Scottish capital on their 11th attempt with just two friends in attendance. Even then they saw two flights from Bournemouth to Scotland cancelled due to snow.

41-year old Nicky said in the Metro: 'I was beginning to think it would never happen, so I am relieved to be Mrs Pretty at last.
