For many couples, the difference between being officially bound together and just sharing the same toilet is that big, white, expensive wedding. But a big white wedding may not be the elixir of life for everyone. So how about a coin-operated one?! I present to you, the Autowed. For £1 this automated machine will play the traditional wedding march, dispense plastic wedding rings, pronounce you wed and print marriage receipts. You can also select which type of union, i.e. straight, gay (or best friends 4eva) and receipts include a handy discount voucher in case you need an auto-divorce. Prototype lab, Concept Shed, have had requests worldwide for the machines which the British creators compare to a parking meter mixed up with a Cadillac.

So what do we say? A dream wedding or one less reason to get married?
