"Mum came into the room one day and said 'I'm going to have a Pokémon wedding', it started out as a joke but became more serious and as we got more and more Pokémon stuff it became real.

"I don't think Steve thought it was happening and he only got his costume a week before the day. We got a lot of looks as we walked around but it was just a lot of fun and an amazing day, it's a wedding I will never forget."
