London couples will spend the most on their celebration, according to the numbers - with venue hire topping the expense list

 

A new study has found the typical British wedding will cost £11,411 - a fraction of the £20k couples spent on their nuptials a decade ago.

The research, conducted by delivery and returns service CollectPlus, found that couples in London will spend the most on their nuptials, with an average big-day spend of £13,825.

Couples in Brighton are the most budget-conscious, with newlyweds dropping £5,933 on their special celebrations.
