Our dream weddings can take many forms, from getting married somewhere exotic, to an elaborate carnivalesque celebration of love and affection, but in most cases, they can take months if not years of planning to get underway.

For Laura Kate Dale and Jane Magnet, however, the chance at a dream wedding was the result of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and two weeks notice.

The ceremony, paid for by Avanti was won in a contest set up by the train company to find a loving couple to have a wedding ceremony on the 10:59 West Coast Main Line Pendolino service between London Euston and Birmingham New Street.

Fittingly, this was the train on which journalist Mrs Dale and podcaster Mrs Magnet first met, on their way to a gaming convention in Telford.

All expenses were paid for, including modern wedding photography, a cake, a small guest list of just 18 people and a range of train-themed gifts from Avanti, as well as a wedding photo album.

For the newly Mrs Dale, a video game journalist and author of Gender Euphoria, the barriers in getting the gender recognition certificates needed for their marriage to be legally recognised, as well as the restrictions being put on weddings were the reasons she delayed her wedding.

However, the chance at a wedding on rails does not arrive very often, and so she jumped at the chance, although she was incredibly surprised to win.

Given that the average wedding takes over a year to plan, two weeks was an incredibly short space of time to send invites, sort dresses, arrange time off work and plan any aspect that was not covered by Avanti West Coast.

After the ceremony, they danced in the aisles and partied for hours with friends and family.
