Russ says how he first met Emma 13 years ago when she used to work as a barmaid. He explains how Emma wore the dress at the ceremony straight to the festival.

He said: "It is exactly the same dress, yeah. She was a barmaid in a pub and I drank there.

"Like all good love stories start. It was 13 years ago now. I emailed Kendal Calling to say if we could have a bottle of champagne in the tent.

"I just thought it would be nice just to get there and have a bottle of champagne. They have just been ace and have been giving us all kinds. We have got VIP green room tickets. Everyone should get married before they come to a festival."
