A COUPLE who saved for years to have the wedding of their dreams have appealed for the return of the only video of the ceremony and reception after the camera it was recorded on went missing.

Nicola (32) and Stephen (34) Wong, who were teenage sweethearts, had initially planned to have a professional videographer record their special day but "we didn't have the money to pay somebody to do it", said Nicola.

Instead her uncle, Michael Foley, "stepped up to do it for us and we were very happy", said Stephen.

The couple loved every minute of their civil service and reception at the D Hotel in Drogheda and were looking forward to reliving it by watching the recording.

"For me, the day was amazing but it went in a blur and I would love to be able to relive it," said Nicola.

The pair have been sweet-hearts since their teens and their wedding was made extra special because their sons, Michael (14) and Stevie (5), were part of it.

Michael was a groomsman and Stevie was the ring-bearer for their big day on June 28.

It was the next day that her uncle Michael could not find the camera despite searching high and low.

"I cannot say that it was stolen but it was left down and we can't find it," Nicola said.

Now the couple just want to get back the memory card containing the only footage of their big day.

Stephen said: "It is a Fuji FinePix camera, one of the expensive ones. We would be happy just to get the memory card back."

The couple is offering a small reward for its return. They cannot afford to offer a large amount.

They can be contacted through Stephen's Facebook page and they stress, "There will be no questions asked, we just want the memory card back."
