Nice day for a Vimto wedding

21 August 2014

vimto A Vimto-obsessed man has had a Vimto-themed wedding. No, he didn't actually marry Vimto, but has settled on a lady instead.

Michael Tomlin of Cheshire, loves Vimto so much, he had his wedding to his bride Liz themed all around the purple goo.

Guests wore purple, they toasted with Vimto and dined on a variety of the soft drink's spin-off products - even the priest wore a purple sash at St Gregory’s Church in Bollington, Cheshire.

Even the best man pulled out a presentation and joked that the wedding was sponsored by Vimto.

Michael explains that his obsession stemmed from when his gran used to make him the drink: ''When I met Liz I even took her to a Vimto statue in Manchester city centre for our first date and I proposed to her at the same spot four years later."

"Vimto is at the centre of our hearts, so it was only fitting that it played a major part in our day. When I first met I was telling her the history of the drink and she loves all things history."

Vimto is just about bloody EVERYWHERE for Michael, and he's even snuck in a few cartons into his honeymoon luggage.

Which is the point where one would imagine his new wife should put her foot down.
