It was one ring to rule them all, and two rings to marry them as elves, wizards, orcs, and hobbits descended upon a Woolacombe garden for a very special wedding.Bilbo Baggins and Galadriel aka Will Grant, 28, and Amy Gander, 33, transformed their garden into The Shire for their Lord of the Rings-inspired nuptials on July 4. The couple decided to ditch the standard white wedding for the magical theme, setting up a website asking guests to come dressed as characters from the J R R Tolkien classics.Joke ideaAmy, a teacher, said: It started as a joke idea from Wills friends as he is a big fan. We thought it would be good fun; we never expected some of the efforts people would go to though with their costumes. I dont know what we expected, because it was quite a big ask of people, but we were so humbled by how much effort people had put in.Gandalfs appearanceAmy was rowed out to a wooden platform on the lake, where the couple said their vows in front of Gandalf the wizard. An eagle flew the rings into the ceremony which were presented to the couple by Amys six-year-old nephew Fennen Gander. Their children, Gwen, 21 months, and twins Fearne and Xavier, five months, also dressed for the occasion as baby hobbits.Pulling out the stopsAmy added: One guest came as Gimli the dwarf and spent the entire day walking around on his knees - he had huge blisters and cuts after. Will built some mini hobbit holes in the ground, and we had a pillar at the entrance which said speak friend and enter after the Gates of Moria.Leave arrows at homeGuests were asked to keep safety in mind with their costumes and resist the temptation to use their bows to fire any arrows. They feasted in a marquee set up as the Golden Hall of Meduseld, and drank home-made elderflower champagne from an elf bar.Not a fan yet!Yet suprisingly, when the couple first got engaged in 2013, Amy had not even seen the blockbuster films, despite Wills love for them. And she said she is still not converted into a Lord of the Rings superfan Though Im not quite sick of it yet, she added.
