Cressida Bonas has joked about hosting a lockdown wedding after the coronavirus pandemic affected her original wedding plans. The 31-year-old, who announced her engagement to Harry Wentworth-Stanley in August, shared a photo of herself and her fiancé dressed up for a pretend wedding ceremony on Instagram, writing: "Well, if all else fails there's always Auto Wed…! Happy birthday my @harrywent XX #oneday."
The actress donned a veil across her face and clutched a bouquet for the amusing snap, which was taken in front of an AutoWed wedding vending machine, a novelty machine that provides couples with a personalised wedding receipt and a couple of rings.

Cressida's caption prompted sympathy that she has had to postpone her big day from some of her followers, including one who commented: "When the day finally comes I think it'll be even better than it would have been before, you'll dance harder, hug tighter and love more." Meanwhile, another offered their services should she and Harry wish to get married during the lockdown. "I've just ordained myself online via The Church of Life, I can probs fit you in," they wrote.
