AT the stroke of 9.00 a.m Tom Logan and Emma Bradford’s favourite people in the world raced to find the cheapest item on their wedding list.
Friends and family had been poised at their computers ready to pounce on paperweights and place mats the second the list was opened.
Stephen Malley said: “I was in a meeting when I got the reminder on my phone. I left immediately and sprinted to the nearest computer driven on by adrenaline and fear.
“By 9.03 I was dripping with sweat but I’d successfully bagged a toaster and was off the hook.
“I’ve known Tom since I was three and it’s an honour to be his best man, but there’s no room for sentiment when it comes to a gift list. It’s like the Hunger Games.”
The couple stated on their wedding invitations that they did not expect any gifts while making it clear that anyone who did not at least deliver a saucepan would be dead to them.
Tom Logan said: “We put a handful of affordable things on the list but after that it’s every man for himself. Now we sit back and see which sucker is left with no option but to get us a widescreen TV.”
