Get hitched for a quid


A company has unveiled an unusual vending machine that enables you to get married for just £1. The 8ft (2.4m) tall pink AutoWed machine is described by its Falmouth-based makers, Concept Shed, as “a parking meter mixed up with a Cadillac”. To kick off proceedings the machine plays a specially composed intro version of the Wedding March.
Customers are then able to select their type of union from gay, straight, lesbian or best friend forever. The ceremony itself takes place courtesy of a robotic voice, before customers take their vows – pressing one button for “I do” and another for “Escape”.
After inputting their names the happy couple then gets a wedding receipt and two plastic rings in egg-shaped capsules.And, just in case things don’t work out, the machine also issues a 10% off voucher for AutoDivorce. The first AutoWed machine has now been brought by Marvin’s Marvellous Mechanical Museum in Michigan, America.
