Todd, 48, left Hull Crown Court in tears today despite hearing his girlfriend had said: "Yes!" to his court room marriage proposal. Mr Todd almost died when Baillie, 32, plunged an 8in kitchen knife into his back as he slept. But he appeared at Hull Crown Court last week with a white gold diamond solitaire ring with the intention of proposing in court in an act of Easter forgiveness. Baillie, 32, who had been depressed after a miscarriage has been forgiven by Mr Todd who spent three months in hospital recovering from a damaged pancreas and spleen after she attacked him two weeks after losing his baby. Mr Todd had written an emotional letter to the judge which Judge Mettyear read out. He said: "She has made a big mistake that she will regret for the rest of her life. Please show compassion and allow her to prove what a valuable member of society she is and a mother to her son. She will have a husband, if you allow us to marry. I promise we won't let you down." Judge Michael Mettyear who heard of the proposal last Thursday in Hull Crown Court had adjourned the sentencing hearing to consider what weight he could give to the victims appeal for mercy.

My fiancé and I decided to get other small, silly, surprise gifts for our rehearsal dinner. When we opened our gifts, I couldn't believe it! We had both bought each other identical Sonic Screwdriver pens! Of course we used them to sign the marriage license!

36-year-old Nadine Schweigert from Fargo, North Dakota, got married last month. She was dressed in a peacock blue satin dress and carried a bouquet of white roses. There was also a lovely white wedding cake covered in peacock blue fondant. But if you paid attention, you probably noticed there was no mention of a groom. It's not that he didn't show up, it's just that there wasn't a groom to begin with. Nadine just happened to marry herself. So when Nadine stood up in front of the 45 guests at her wedding, she took the following vow: "I, Nadine promise to enjoy inhabiting my own life and to relish a lifelong love affair with my beautiful self." Later in the ceremony, she presented herself with a ring. When it was time for the traditional first kiss, she asked guests to blow kisses to the whole world. Soon after the ceremony, Nadine even took off on a honeymoon at New Orleans, all by herself, of course. Nadine says that after three children and a divorce, she spent several years just waiting for someone to come along and make her happy. She has struggled for years with self-acceptance, attending group therapy in an attempt to feel better. One day, when a friend said to her, "Why do you need someone to marry you to be happy? Marry yourself," the idea took root in Nadine's mind.

After seeing a similar post on this site, our wedding party had to outdo them. This was taken at our rehearsal dinner. We even matched character personalities! (That's our officiant as Admiral Adama!)

I've long felt that both The Bible and Battlestar Galactica should have taken place in an East Coast-style eatery with stained glass lamps. I mean, if it works for sitcoms it works for everything, amirite?
