A MEMORABLE wedding does not mean breaking the bank, according to newlyweds Andrew and Amy Farrell.

The couple recently tied the knot in one of their favourite spots, the picturesque Coomba Falls near Maidenwell.

And with the average Australian wedding now costing $36,200, Mr Farrell said he got a first class wedding for a fraction of the cost.

"We've probably done the wedding for a tenth of that," Mr Farrell said.

"It was definitely a budget wedding but I don't feel that we missed out."

Despite the bargain price tag the wedding wasn't lacking in glitz and glam.

The couple were escorted by a procession of eight classic cars and hot rods driven by friends from the motoring club South Burnett Gas Guzzlers.

Mr Farrell said that he thought he had everything he needed to make the wedding special.

"Everyone we have spoken to has told us what a nice and unique wedding it was," he said.

"It's all about the people and the atmosphere."
