Some couples dream of having a white winter wedding - but that wasn't quite the case for Geoff and Julie Bodman - who had organised a St David’s Day wedding with the ideas of daffodils and Spring sunshine.
Instead what they got was 50cm of snow and only 42 of their 200 guests able to turn up.
The wedding went ahead but it was not the event the couple from Tremorfa in Cardiff, had been planning.
Now kind-hearted friends and family are rallying round to organise another wedding party to make up for their disappointment.
They managed to arrange it for 3pm, instead of 3.30pm, but a lot of the guests were unable to make it.
The music they had planned for the ceremony didn’t work because the wi-fi was down and the newlyweds had to have some pictures taken in the middle of a blizzard.
Then, when they got to the reception at the Angel Hotel, the DJ rang to say he wasn’t going to be able to make it.
But now they are getting the chance to thanks to close friend Sue Franks. She has a catering company and has been able to arrange another reception for the couple free of charge at Portland House in Cardiff Bay next month.
The couple, who first met 30 years ago while working at Ely hospital, had lost touch with each other until just over two years ago when Geoff sent a friend request to Julie, 47, on Facebook. Both of them now work for Innovative Trust.
Sue said she was only too happy to help her childhood friend Geoff and his new wife.
