Craig Moss, from Dundee, spent three months writing letters to famous faces in the hope he could put together the clips for a montage to be shown at the couple's reception in Edinburgh last month.

Television presenter Lorraine Kelly and Game Of Thrones actor Ian McElhinney were among those to respond to his request with a recorded message for bride Ruth.

Presenter John Humphrys sent his message from the set of Mastermind.

Mr Moss, 40, said: " I got the idea quite late and it meant I had around a three-month window to get it all sorted.

"I came up with an initial list of celebs that meant something to Ruth and then set myself the goal of writing two letters a day.

"I would hand-write them and then send them off in the post and each one would be personalised."

Mr Moss received around 30 written responses back, including from Sir David Attenborough, Dame Judi Dench and Stephen Fry.

He said he got the reaction he was hoping for when his new wife appeared "stunned" when the six-minute video was played during their celebration on January 30.

Other celebrities who featured in the footage included magician Paul Daniels and his wife Debbie McGee, explorer Jason Lewis, Beautiful South singer Alison Wheeler and former Apprentice contestant Ruth Badger.
