I am unemployed woman my heart set on a 'fairy-tale church wedding and I need your donations to foot the bill to be a bride. My name is Anna Broom, of Gillingham, in Kent, I have not worked since the age of 19. I am jobless for 30-year-old now I am seeking contributions of £10,000 to fund my dream 'traditional English wedding and party in a castle'. I want a church ceremony, designer dress, horse and carriage, champagne for her 50 guests and honeymoon, to Mexico. I've dreamed about being a bride since I was 12 years old I deserve a fairy-tale church wedding and a party in a castle - but there's no way I could afford it and I can't work because I'm overweight.
I need your help to fund my £10,000 dream wedding. I don't see why I should have a small wedding at a registry office, I wouldn't be able to fit in all my guests and a church wedding is far more romantic. I'm stuck in a rut at the moment and can't find the motivation to lose weight, but if I was getting married I know I'd slim down because all eyes would be on me. I left school without any qualifications and started a job as a nursery nurse aged 16 for two years. I left after being overlooked for a secretarial role by a 'skinny blonde' and applied for several other jobs, without success. I lost interest in trying to find work which resorted to binge-eating crisps and sweets. Within a year, I weighed 17 stone and in 2003, aged 19, was declared unfit to work after suffering from depression and back problems associated with my size.
I found comfort in my life in the form of my fiancé Jordan, who I met in a pub in 2014. It was love at first sight. He's got a lovely smile. We have lots in common - we both love heavy metal and Bon Jovi. Two years later, he popped the question outside a Primark store. After getting engaged, I dream about arriving in a horse and carriage, I picture myself in a silk dress that shows off my cleavage, I'd like a long veil and sparkly red designer heels and I want two bridesmaids and flower girls scattering petals down the aisle. We'd serve posh prawn canapes, a roast dinner and champagne. I'd have around 50 guests with a five-tier cake and a big buffet too. I'd also love a big band and have picked out Savage Garden's Truly, Madly Deeply for our first dance.'
But I realised I would be unable to foot the bill for my dream wedding. I was gutted. We only get £800 a month in benefits between us and after we've paid for bills, a night out at the pub, dog food for our Labrador, cigarettes and the odd kebab, there's barely anything left.I'd rather not get married than have a cheap do - it'd only make me unhappy.'
Thank you all for your time and kind thoughts.
